外国人如何看待中国的百年国耻? 世界看中国-第1张


Alonso Lopez Moreno

Fun fact,during the boxer rebellion the only ambassador allowed to talk to the empress in the Forbidden City was the spanish one,despite Spain’s passive attitude in this incident(other than the soldiers defending the embassy,no army force was sent to China as other powers did)

Opium War Summary:
the british got the chinese addicted to opium and made huge profits out of the opium export.the qing government made.the drug illegal and the british started a war over it which they won because the soldiers couldn’t really put up much of a fight due to almost all of them being high for most of the day..

Excellent video.I was flabbergasted when I found out the details of what Great Britain did to China in the 19th century.
Sounds dreadful with the gunboat diplomacy,selling opium to it’s citizens,creating an unfair treaty and then annexing Hong,Kong.On a positive note I wouldn’t dream of this now,it was another century!Yet I can understand why the Chinese may have called it a century humiliation,although Britain did hand Hong Kong back in a better condition than first found at least.
Last point I hope there isn’t still animosity.For example I don’t have animosity with Germany for WW2 and have largely good relations now.As a British person,I know my country has been invaded for thousands of years and I hold no grudges,hopefully China feels the same way too!;-)


From the defeat in the First Opium War in 1840 and the signing of unequal treaties to the victory in The Second World War in 1945,China became the five major powers of the United Nations.The Chinese call it a century of shame.
In 1842,the British defeated China in the first Opium War and captured Hong Kong.
In 1860,Britain and France defeated China in the Second Opium War and burned down the royal gardens.
In 1860,the Russians took advantage of the situation and annexed large areas of outer Manchuria and Xinjiang.
In 1879 ryukyu,a vassal state of China,was annexed by Japan.
In 1885 Sino-French War,France colonized Vietnam,a vassal state of China.
In 1895,Japan defeated China in the Sino-Japanese War,annexing Taiwan and China’s vassal Korea and receiving large reparations.
In 1897,German troops forcibly occupied Jiaozhou Bay in Qingdao and the Chinese government was powerless to resist.
During the Boxer Rebellion of 1900,an eight-nation allied army captured the Chinese capital and sacked the imperial palace.
In 1904,The British invaded China’s Tibet and gave part of Tibet to India without authorization.
In 1905 russo-Japanese War,other countries fought on Chinese soil and China had to watch from the sidelines.
In 1918,When China was the victor of the First World War,Germany transferred its interests in Qingdao,China to Japan.
1924 Mongolian,a Chinese territory,declared independence with Russian support.
In 1928,more than 2,000 Chinese officials,soldiers and civilians were killed by The Japanese army in the Jinan Incident.The Kuomintang government of China could only endure it.
After China lost the Soviet War in 1929,the Russians had privileged access to manchuria’s railways.
When Japan invaded Manchuria in 1931,Chinese troops abandoned manchuria without resistance.
Japan forced China to sign a treaty in 1933 that prevented Chinese troops from stationing troops in Shanghai and their territory north of the Great Wall.
The second Sino-Japanese War broke out in 1937,when Japan occupied large areas of China and massacred large numbers of Chinese civilians.
In 1945,As the victor of World War II,China became one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.
Abrogated most of the unequal treaties and recovered territories such as Taiwan,Manchuria and Xinjiang.

Ya E

And today the west claims everything it did was selfless help for China.

You Twat

They never recovered Taiwan

It is interesting that the last concession abandoned was the Italian one(1947).Among other things,the old buildings remain(barracks and palaces in the fascist style and villas in the Liberty style as seen in Viareggio on the Tuscan coast).Chinese government,very intelligently,has restored the neighborhood(it didn’t even remove the fasces and the portraits of Mussolini)and transformed it into a touristic Little Italy

Thanks for posting this because I had never heard of this settlement before.So,I looked it up and read about it on the Internet.Italian Fascist architecture was ofttimes quite wonderful:Just look at Asmara in Eritrea that is renowned as one of the most architecturally significant cities in all of Africa.It is great that the Chinese government was cultured and sophisticated enough in this instance to preserve and restore this historical area.

Can suggest you to read about Ningbo as well.It wasn’t a colony(even though Brits tried),but history of the city is pretty interesting.Especially,international relations in this port.


The europeans basically had an addiction of”haha,your land mine now”for over two centuries so the title does not surprise me.
First things i know about the european influence on China before i watch this video is that the British Empire colonized Hong Kong and the Portuguese Empire colonized Macao,plus Germany colonized a bit and i think no other european power colonized stuff from China but they just had spheres of influence,and there was the boxer rebellion by people from China rising up to root out the europeans,but that is all i know.

Two centuries?That’s not even close to reality.The first wave of European colonialism start with the conquest of Ceuta in 1415 by the Portuguese,followed by the well known arrival of Columbus to America in 1492 all the way to the hand over of Macau in 1999.So close to six centuries.


@lkad what 1999?so you think It’s over now?hell no FRANCE,spain,UK,US still have many territories under the belt look it up

Ewoud Alliet

Europeans didn’t have an addiction of”haha,your land mine now”.It wasn’t even about the land(a lot of land that was colonised was sparcely populated and underdeveloped and thus rather”worthless”),but more about securing/dominating trade routes and trade goods that were rare in Europe or were easier to produce in those regions.It wasn’t just”the Europeans”who did this,but most states attempted it to various degrees.Only some were more succesful at it due to a plethora of reasons(technology is by far not the only one).Besides the Europeans,the Japanese were pretty good at it too,so were the Americans(who were indeed mostly European).Even the Chinese themselves did it.Early on in southern China(one can actually even go so far as to consider parts of southern China as colonies;just like one could consider Siberia to be),later on in Taiwan(which was discovered by the Portuguese,the Dutch(VOC)then settled(did not occupy it)at Fort Zeelandia,cooperated with the locals(they weren’t allowed to settle in China),they provided the locals with education and built sugar cane plantations(what many may not know is that the process wasn’t always violent).The local population(Taiwanese aboriginese;now about 2-3%of the Taiwanese population)was more related to that of the Philipines.Then the Ming dynasty fled to Taiwan(when fighting the Qing)and drove the Dutch out and in the years that followed the island also got colonised by(Qing)China.And then there’s of course Tibet,Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia,which are basically modern day colonies(shocking,right?)by every definition(even with settlements;as the locals are replaced with Han Chinese people who are encouraged to settle there).And it wasn’t just for 200 years;the Ancient Greeks and Romans also had colonies in the Mediterrean(and nope,still not a European thing alone;Carthage also had colonies;in fact Carthage started off as a colony).
As for the colonisation of China.Many countries got in on it;the UK,France and Germany are indeed among them,but so are the US,Japan,Italy,Austro-Hungary(shocking,right?),Portugal,Belgium,Italy and of course Russia(people somehow always don’t consider Russia a colonial nation,whilst it was one of the biggest and most succesful colonisers;and actually,still is).There were also a couple of internationally governed”colonies”(and here I can list involved countries like Denmark,Sweden,Mexico,Peru etc.).
The boxer rebellion wasn’t just to”root out the Europeans”;it was to root out Western influence(so,not just European and not just from the colonies but also from what remained of China).This is a very important distinction,as it indicates that the Boxer Rebellion wasn’t so much anti-colonial,as it was xenophobic in nature.For example,Chinese Christians were also targeted and slaughtered(as they weren’t”really Chinese”).

@lkad What about the Ancient Greeks or Phoenicians/Carthagineans?Colonialism is far older than 1492(or 1415;what about the Canary Islands for example).
Colonialism(be it European or not)also didn’t end in 1999.What about Siberia?
I think it’s rather hard to put a date on this.It’s like trying to say”yeah,conquests happened from X till Y”and in so many cases we can still debate whether colonies are actually colonies or more like territories(and modern politics of course heavily influence that debate).


@Ewoud Alliet shudup.just shudup kid.You’re not adding any new info,Europeans were even worse than”your land is mine now”.They way You’re normalizing All major suppression but focusing on thin silver line on a big spectrum is just disgusting.They killed millions just to grow crops in these territories?They taught some”local agents”just to make the communication easy.they only built roads from resources to port to make”loot”even more profitable.i can literally write essays on countless of issues but not to Pseudo historians like you cuz your ignorance sounds deliberate.


Colonizers got put back in their places!Maybe that’s why Europe is so small.Lol


@Ewoud Alliet colonization against locals will and profit as largest opium cartel doesn’t justify

Ewoud Alliet

@Noobydooby Pseudohistorian?Comes from the one who probably didn’t even do his research and just jumps on the bandwagon.
“Europeans were even worse than”your land is mine now””
Yes,of course they were.Here we have our first fallacy.A straw man.I’m not arguing that Europeans(or anyone for that matter)was better or worse than”your land is mine now”;I argued that”your land is mine now”wasn’t(always/mostly)what it was about.I strongly suggest that you read that again,because you clearly didn’t understand it.
To phrase my point differently;history isn’t always about”conquest”and”war”,but also(and even far more importantly)about trade/profit/money.It’s not because conflicts get more attention that they played a bigger role in how our current political climate was shaped(than trade did).Do you understand it better this way?
“You’re normalizing All major suppression but focusing on thin silver line on a big spectrum is just disgusting”
How so?Quote me.I specifically talked about Dutch Formosa.I never portrayed the situation in Dutch Formosa as the norm.
“They killed millions just to grow crops in these territories?”
What’s really”disgusting”is that you just commented without doing your research.I merely stated that European colonies weren’t always vicious and oppresive slave economies,with the example of Taiwan/Dutch Formosa(which would be”this territory and not these territories as you wrote,but perhaps you once again misinterpreted it as like”all European colonies”,which-once again-I didn’t write).So,before you comment again,learn a little more about the history of Taiwan or Dutch Formosa more specifically.There were other colonies like this too.The majority wasn’t like it(never claimed it was),but some smaller colonies were(some colonies were set up on uninhabited islands too;my point is simply that colonialism/imperealism wasn’t always the exact same process of conquer,enslave,profit).Also,it’d be pretty hard to kill millions on an island that doesn’t even have a population in the millions.I mean,in 1900 the population was under the 4million…so it’s safe to assume that in the 17th century that figure was way lower.
Also…Europeans didn’t just”kill”people(that’s more like a religious thing to do;like Timur Lenk,Crusades…)or a vicious conquest thing(like Mongols,Japanese…).These people were manpower,which meant a labour force.For example the population in the Americas was devastated by newly introduced diseases and hence why the Atlantic slave trade was so successful.How are you going to grow labour-intensive crops if you’ve killed the entire local population?You’re not(this alone tells me that what you know about colonialism is likely more of political origins than historical origins).I really hope you understand this,because if you don’t,then you don’t even understand the reasons for the Atlantic slave trade or the(widespread)use of slaverly(and that’s a big deal).
“They taught some”local agents”just to make the communication easy.”
Yeah,but no.Education had the advantage of facilitating communication(but this by far wasn’t the main reason as the Europeans had plenty of translators themselves).Another important reason is the spread of Christianity.But also because it allows the local population to develop better and thus produce more/live better lives.This,in turn,also(at least in the case of Taiwan)helps with the image the Dutch had.I mean,why did Western powers help Japan to Westernise(to facilitate communication?).I’ll try to clarify it one more time:TRADE TRADE TRADE!
