Therefore, China was not really control by the emperor anymore, but the British government. Moreover, during the 18th and 19th century, when nationalism rose, Chinese was underestimated the British’s power. Therefore, China became a prey of Japanese and British and became colonized due to lack of industrialization.

Sun Yat-Sen, the first leader who published the communist party always believed that China should be democratic, which meant to rule by parliament and constitution.

I believe in C.R.E.A.M "Cash Rules Everything Around Me" Originating from the Wu Tang Clan. Unlike many current rap songs, this song stressed the importance of obtaining money, as opposed to spending it.
