Chinese people who lived through the wars and the occuppation as well as the cultural revolution and the open door policy still remember their history just fine.

History is not something embedded in books studied in a classroom, societies are products of their own history you see remanets of it all round you.

Hard as you might try you can't stop people thinking , feeling or remembering. their collective past The Sino Japanese War is a case in point .

Google for items like "Taiwan", ""Mongolia", "the 1989 revolt on Tiananmen Square". I can mention thousands of subjects...
You are not allowed to know that these items even exist in history.
So their true content will always remain hidden for you, while the free world goes on living in happiness...

i'm sure you don't mean the mass of people in our "free world" which are addicted to work for minimum wages in precarious jobs...often without a real perspective to get a better job...

Chinese know about all the things you mentioned, have you ever met any Chinese or been to China or is your impression of China what you have seen on BBC?

It's my personal experience when I was in Beijing for several months, two years ago.
I worked there at the company BAMTRI, and even the educated people there like university engineers knew nothing about the world outside China, or the free country Taiwan, or the 1989 student protests, or anything alike.
The internet in China is totally "cleaned" from such items.

Taiwan is not a free country, you government doesn't recognize them and so do most countries in the world. Even Kosovo is more recognized than Taiwan.
Maybe it was the way you asked the questions? Because the Tiananmen incidents are not called protests in China.

This is flying up quickly even though it has such a complex structural system.
