  • By the end of this presentation, you will have a different view of the world, particularly with respect to China.
  • Well who here is better placed than I to talk about dragons? Ignore my Australian accent for one moment. My son’s name is Dylan, my family name is Morgan and my mum was born in Wrexham. As you might now realise, the word‘Dragon’conjures up images of red dragons on green and white backgrounds. And since I also played Dungeons and Dragons religiously as a teenager, 7,000 Experience Points and the +5 Double-handed sword of Thun, also springs to mind.Oh, and images like this also spring to mind
  • Are we really going through such monumental social, technological and political changes compared with 1952?Angle of presentation is to highlight that the fierce and frightening ‘Dragon’ is actually nothing more than the Wizard of Oz, pulling the strings. We are afraid of change, but we’ve been here before.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, let’s play a game.When I say a word I want you to, without thinking too hard, shout ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Don’t contemplate the meaning of the word, just react emotionally.‘Holiday’(crowd shouts ‘good’)‘Over time’ (crowd shouts ‘bad’)‘Birthday’ (crowd shouts ‘good’)‘Old’ (crowd shouts ‘bad’)Now if I flicked through a dictionary to each of these words, what would I find. Would I find a description that included the emotional attachment – that ‘holiday’ was a good word, and that ‘over time’ was bad? Clearly I would not. And yet, en masse, at TEDx Hult, you have all decided that ‘holiday’ is indeed a good word. So why is that?This is because words, many but not all, have emotional attachments. So what? What has this got to do with ‘Unveiling the Dragon’?

  • The Dodrill–GMR machine was the first operational mechanical heart successfully used while performing open heart surgery. It was developed by Dr. Forest Dewey Dodrill, a surgeon at Harper University Hospital in Detroit, and General Motors Research.On July 3, 1952, 41-year-old Henry Opitek suffering from shortness of breath made medical history at Harper University Hospital in Michigan. The Dodrill–GMR heart machine, considered by some to be the first operational mechanical heart was successfully used while performing heart surgery.[1][2] The machine performs the functions of the heart, allowing doctors to detour blood and stop the heart of a patient during an operation. The machine is external of the body and is only used during an operation.

  • Today, Beijing is targeting the ‘3 Illegals’ - illegal entry, overstayed visa, and illegal employment. Sixty years agao, in 1952, they had 5! The Five-anti campaign was launched in January 1952. It was designed to target the capitalist class. The Communist party set a very vague guideline of who could be charged, and it became an all out war against the bourgeoisie in China.[2] Deng Xiaoping warned the people "not to be corrupted by capitalist thinking".[3]The 5 antis imposed were:bribery (反对行贿)[2]theft of state property (反对盗骗国家财产)tax evasion (反对偷税漏税)cheating on government contracts (反对偷工减料)stealing state economic information (反对盗窃国家经济情报).
  • McCarthyism begins in earnest: Immigration and Nationality, or McCarran-Walter, Act allowing for the deport immigrants or naturalized citizens engaged in subversive activities and also to bar suspected subversives from entering the country.
  • European Coal and Steel Community is created (the beginning of the EU) The European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) was a six-nation international organisation proposedin 1950serving to unify Western Europe during the Cold War and create the foundation for the modern-day developments of the European Union. France, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg signed the ‘Treat of Paris’ in 1951 (see flag of ECSC).The purpose of this agreement was to "make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible.”
  • Today, the same is true for Australia and China (redesign flag to combine Australia and China). Our economies are engrained, not because of a threat of war, but because of a mutual reliance, and like the EU, this is what is going to drive our two economies forward in the next 50 to 100 years.

  • At the age of 26 Queen Elizabeth the Second succeeds her late father King George VI (who has got around by the name of Prince Albert for most of his pre-King years). It’s understandable why he changed his name.

  • Change is often seen as a negative. It is connected with uncertainty, risk and an overall uncomfortable feelingNow, recall what you said when I showed you the words ‘holiday’ and ‘overtime’. Your opinion was subconscious, built on years of first hand experience, third party opinions, and the culture of your country or countries of residence over your many years.
  • The imagery is very dark. And clearly we’re not alone. A Google search of the English word ‘dragon’ results in the following images. Dark, frightening, powerful and Dangerous. ‘Dragon’ in English has the same emotional attachment as ‘overtime’.
  • Red Dragon
  • Enter the Dragon
  • A holiday!Or at least the same emotional correlation. This is a friendly, happy, regal creature, which might even be associated with ‘he xie’ – or harmony! In the world of NeuroLinguisting Programming, this is referred to as an ‘internal representation’ – and one that is influenced, in this case, heavily by culture. Now you can see how the same majestic animal, is both loved and feared, depending on which side of the Pacific you were born. And when China proudly boasts that the Dragon represents the spirit of the Chinese people, few Westerners are picturing Puff. They see a threat! An ‘overtime’. (Change Puff the Magic Dragon drinking tea and then armed with a machine gun, tanks and communist propaganda).So, it is my intention, in the remaining 12 minutes, to Unveil the Dragon, and to show that while we, East and West, started with some serious miscommunication, we can come to the conclusion that China’s rise, and the impact that it is making on technology, society and politics should not be feared. And here is why. Because we’ve lived through worse.That’s right.2012, monumental social, technological and political change. Don’t be ridiculous. 2012, has nothing on 1952.

  • Chinese movie’s with the word ‘Dragon’ focus on the beauty of the country, and a love affair, rather than any mythical monster with menacing power.
  • When the word ‘Dragon’ or ‘龙’ does appear in the title of a Chinese movie, it is usually a romantic, comical chick-flick with a scantily clad vixon – Cecilia Cheunginthis case on and off the screen. You can see more of her online, literally.
