Well, a strong China does not immediately translate to a peaceful and progressive life for us overseas Chinese. A strong and aggressive China may mean worse treatment of ethnic Chinese by the natives. So, it is in the interest of every overseas Chinese that the government in China does not act in a prejudicial manner to its home country, otherwise there could be repercussions. The war between China and Vietnam in 1979 led to worse treatment of the Vietnamese Chinese. You cannot count on China to protect the overseas Chinese also. Many Chinese in Cambodia suffered under the Khmer Rouge regime, China's then ally in Indochina.
Da jia ni men hao
I'm sure we will witnessing this in the near future.
I visited Jakarta during the Chinese new year period last month. As usual, my friends and I went to this place near Plaza Senayan. There was a lion-dance. My feeling was that the native Indonesians are accepting the Chinese on the surface, but it may take many more years before the Government abolishes all discriminations against the Indonesian Chinese. Despite all the talks about Malaysia being truly Asia, discrimination by and large still exist against Chinese Malaysian whether in terms of education, armed forces, the civil service, government projects, government loans...etc.
The solution to getting better treatment for overseas Chinese varies from each Country. I always think overseas Chinese need to get more involved in the civic lives of the country they live in, rather than just concentrating in making money. But hoping for a strong China is definitely not a good solution. Hate to burst your dream for a return to the Tang dynasty.
