有什么样的自由是中国人有而美国人没有的?

(1) Fight with police without getting shot.
(2) Hanging out in the middle of night without worrying about our safety.
(3)Free from ridiculously expensive medical bill. E.g A visit to clinic for illness such as cough or fever usually cost less than 20 USD.
(4) Free from expensive school fee. E.g A year in the best Universities of China costs around 800USD a year, so that everyone has a chance for top-rated education in China.

1、与警察发生冲突不会被射杀。

2、半夜在外游荡,不用担心自己的安全。

3、医疗费用不会昂贵。例如去看病就诊咳嗽或发烧等疾病,花费通常少于20美元。

4、学费不贵,例如中国最好大学的一学年花费大约800美元,所以中国每个人都有机会接受一流教育。

Currently, these are the things that came to my mind 🙂
There are people disagree with my answer for reasons like U.S has this + that, and thus is generally better than China….. Well, personally, I believe that there are pros and cons living in both countries, and US definitely has more pros since it was more developed.
However, since the question didn’t ask for full comparison, I didn’t mention these aspects. So please only focus on the question… no hard feelings 🙂

我目前想到的就是这些。

有人不同意我的观点,他们会说如美国有这有那,比中国好……好吧,个人认为住在两国各有利弊,而美国有更多优势,毕竟是发达国家。

Freedom of buying alcohol: I know it is not good, but I believe alcohol is easily available, and age restrictions may be there. However, at present it seems these are not enforced very strictly.
Freedom from unemployment: On a face value it looks to me that there is hardly any unemployment there. Regardless, the way China is growing, I believe, the Chinese will have a lot of choices in the coming decades.

He/she finds brand new roads/beautiful buildings/ and rerouted street to his/her home. There is no slow pace when the Govt decides something it gets done asap.

购买酒的自由:我知道这不好,酒很容易买到,年龄限制可能存在,然而,目前似乎没有很严格地执行。

免于失业:对我来说,从表面看来,中国似乎几乎没有失业。无论如何,中国正在成长,我相信,未来几十年内中国人会有很多选择。

做事拖延,不会犹豫不决:办事速度非常快,人们在外打工回来,找不到自己的家,倒是看到了崭新的道路、美丽的建筑、街道改道。当政府决定某事时,就不会放慢脚步,并尽快完成。大城市和小城市之间的连接没限制,大规模的公共交通四通八达。

中国人用蒜和调味料做饭,保证了美味。

和父母/祖父母居住的自由:中国社会是联合家庭体系,结婚的孩子喜欢分开住,没结婚的也不会因为和父母或祖父母们住一起而被看不起。

整夜玩麻将的自由:你或许会通宵玩麻将,不用担心游戏吵到别人;邻居们几乎不报警。

Freedom to break into square dance or any form of dance in pubic parks with music blasting: After all Chinese stay fit and this is one activity they like very much the open dancing. Any strangers can join, no problem. BTW, it is excellent practice; I was very impressed with it.
Freedom to piss and spit almost anywhere: I am originally from India, and I fully understand well, in highly populated countries it is a worldwide problem. I understand well, but classic westerns do not. Well, when you have to go you have to go.

凌晨或深夜放鞭炮的自由:中国人发明了烟花。能在任何时候放(开个玩笑)。中国人的确很好地运用了他们的自由,在一天内的任何时间用烟花表现或庆祝。

自由地在公园里放音乐跳广场舞:中国人保持着健康,这是他们非常喜欢的户外跳舞活动。任何陌生人都能加入,没问题。顺便说,这是很棒的锻炼;

几乎任何地方都能自由地小便或吐痰:我来自印度,我完全理解,在人口众多的城市里,这是个世界性的问题。我也理解,但传统西方人理解不来。

Freedom of a child growing without diaper: The Chinese do not believe in diapers, and besides it expensive and fills landfills. After all, Child is child, let him roam free, and help himself. I know due to my Indian background. Bonus Chinese kids do not have nasty diaper rash.
We have almost same thing in India also.
Freedom to show your bellies: Big, bold, bare bellies seems to be in fashion, and why not males in every species show their best to attract females. Belly is not bad sign in China, it is sign of richness. Think about laughing Buddha.

不用尿布:中国人不喜欢给孩子戴尿布,尿布贵。毕竟,孩子是孩子,让他自由地跑,自己做事。我知道这是因为我的印度背景,中国孩子不会受肮脏尿布疹的困扰。

我们印度也有同样的事情。

展示自己肚皮的自由:袒露腹部似乎是时尚的,为什么每个物种的雄性不向雌性展示最好的一面。在中国,露肚皮不是坏事,是富裕的标志,想想笑佛。

Freedom of not having doors or even partitions on the toilet rooms:
I am Indo-Canadian, and I be here close to 50 years, I thought I saw everything in this field due to my Indian birth and growing up. However, I must admit this is unique even for my standards.

厕所没有门,甚至连隔板都没有。

我是印度裔加拿大人,在这里呆了将近50年。我在印度出生长大,没有门的厕所,我见多了。

不过即使按照我的标准来看,厕所没有门,还是挺奇特的
