--Moved Taiwan content to new page on Taiwan. All of these are still stubs.


I moved the history part from the People's Republic of China page and tried to make it more Simple English. I think we still need to fix parts of this. How can we say "unconditional surrender"?


Separate articles on History of China to cover everything up to Mao's death and the new regime, and Culture of China would be ideal. Statistics, demographics, industries, energy sources, and all the geography, are much more important than history in this article. We should use it as a template for articles on other major civilizations. In other words, get it right first, and then use it to do the same for India, History of India and Pakistan (inseparable really), Culture of India (Pakistan and Bangaladesh can be covered in Islamic culture). The Chinese situation is simpler, so let's try to get it right first.

It's fair to say that People's Republic of China and Republic of China are two different states with their own articles, but, they are not two different cultures historically, and they do not have two different histories. The few issues unique to each can be discussed in the articles on each, but, don't confuse a state with a culture. People on both sides of the Taiwan Strait believe in a "one China policy". Although maybe less all the time.

Likewise, Korea is one culture with two states. Almost everyone thinks they will eventually re-unify.

Taiwan is not a separate country from China. I know that Taiwan has its own democratic laws and everything but that all part of China's "One Country Two Policies" scheme. The UN refused to address Taiwan as a country. Can someone improve the article a bit so it is not that misleading? Thanks.Noelle 18:18, 25 March 2008 (UTC)


I don't see why you cropped the page on the Chinese history. It provides a better view. Please put it back

If you want to say why the page History of China should be longer, please explain in Talk:History of China. Jim.henderson (talk) 12:39, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Introduction to China[change source]

China is located in Asia. It has the world's biggest poppulation, 1.2 billion people. So out of evey random six people, one would be chinese. China has a extremly long histroy, going back about 5 000 years. There was many emperors back then but it was eventually over throwen by other people. China is now called "The People's Republic of China". The present president of China is Hou Zing Tao.

You can change 'unconditional surrender' to 'surrender completely'. But I think the section on martial arts especially is too complex for Simple English in terms of both vocabulary AND grammar. You need to write in simple, short sentences with only one idea per sentence. As it is, the language in this article is too complex for many non-native speakers and would be more suitable for the main Wikipedia.Cathachap 16:44, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

For the third person,I don't think that Korea will unify. The best it can turn is probably what it is now — This unsigned comment was added by 144.132.131.170 (talk • changes).

Yeah, China has the largest population, but most of them are only Han-Chinese, the largest troop of 56 different ones. Han-Chinese has an extremely long history, later other troops merged into this family with their different cultures and languages thrown away. And rich people are Han-Chinese, they could visit other countries easily, leaving positive or negative impressions. Poor Chinese people could not afford the visa at all. So if you dislike Chinese, please make a differentiation! 119.53.110.221 (talk) 23:49, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
