I'm just curious , how many type of tribes you guys think there are in Laos ?

There are about 160 different ethnic groups in Laos, and some of them are in danger of disappearing due to the spreading of the main Lao culture and assimilation.

Laos dirt poor for the average citizen. Don't hate
embrace it. People bust their butt so they can put food
on the table . I betcha if they want something more
for themselves and their families they would seek that
chance. You can have a cake and eat it too. Look at Japan
Korea.

Let's take a look at Japan and Korea. Both are slowly dying due to birth rates being below the replacement rate. Young people are not having kids, mostly due to the economy. Most Japanese women focus on their careers and don't care about having kids, as the culture makes it very hard for them to do both. Korea is similar. Also a corporate culture where you are basically a slave for the company you work for. Japanese men these days are too into trading cards and video games to even man up and start talking to women.

You could say traditional Japanese/Korean culture is pretty much dead and replaced by a western corporate culture. The life of an average Japanese man is extremely stressful with mostly work and little fun, except for those who have the most wealth.

Traditonal Lao culture is only planting rice and growing vegetables, and gathering plants/animals to eat in the countryside. This still very much exists, even in Northeastern Thailand, though it's just the style of dress that has changed, and some of the young people don't follow that lifestyle, but most do. What's the point of getting more for your family if they aren't even going to exist down the line? What if they become so absorbed into corporate culture that they forget to live their lives and your lineage just dies? It's not worth it, but there's no real solution.

Lao culture is more under threat from the commie Vietnamese and Chinese than the west. They're the ones buying all the land and leaving Lao people with none.

This is all very true.  Western corporate culture is horrible: long hours, little vacation time, they make you do a bunch of extra work and you're not getting paid any extra money.  All of the wealth is siphoned off to those at the top and fraudulent banking shysters.  The materialistic lifestyle is terrible.  I hope Laos retains its traditional values along with Isaan.  Being on the corporate treadmill KILLS the soul.

You guys can say all the down side you like cause your

pretty sure they wanna have opportunity just like yall.
I would like to see the childrens have access to a good
education and health care. There's a group call Jai Lao
that goes around Laos and give kids like school materials
and stuff. I thinking about donating to that cause.

For a commie country like Laos, it will be torn apart spiritually, mentally and physically. Then, traditional culture will be the  tool of exploitation.

The economy of Laos is growing currently, but its natural resources are being pretty much destroyed, so life is actually getting worse for a lot of people in Laos while getting better for a select few.

The only people you can blame for the problems in Laos is the communist Ho Chi Minh- Kaew government.

I'm not saying Lao kids shouldn't pursue opportunities for their future, you can do that without losing your culture, it's just that teenagers often see no value in their culture and always think something else is better.

You could be an engineer and still act like your own race, pretty much.

Anyway, I don't see much of a future for Laos, or most of Southeast Asia sadly.

According to studies global warming along with rapid deforestation will devastate the mostly rural economies, and poverty will increase.

Vietnam does well because of its culture. Vietnamese people are hardworking like the Chinese. You don't see a lot of lazy Vietnamese people and they're also intelligent.

Vietnamese come to the USA and become engineers and professors and succeed. Many Lao and Khmer people are still impoverished and living in the hood and in gangs in the USA.

I don't want to speak badly about Lao people, but they just don't have the ambition or work ethic to succeed in the way that the Vietnamese and Chinese do. The culture of Lao people is just different, and I would say many Lao people could be considered lazy and unmotivated. The same goes for a lot of Thai people. Their country had years of foreign investment and development but the culture of the people didn't change. If Vietnam had that it would be way ahead of Thailand. Now Thailand is losing a lot of Japanese investment to Vietnam, and it's moving backwards economically.

Another factor is the geography of Laos. It has no access to ocean and it doesn't have a lot of land. Combine that with a low population and you get a very small economy. Laos as a country isn't very viable because of that.

You are correct again !  :applause Where I work we have
maybe 3 Lao guy that are specialist in our field including myself.The Vietnamese guy outnumber us 5 to 1. I have
a friend who work at a university as an academic advisor.
She hardly see any Lao young people seeking higher education.Maybe its not being push enough at home.But
you are so right about the Viet. She see tons of them.
The Chinese that are pretty rich in their country are
senting their kids to school over here too. I guess we have
nobody else to blame but ourselves.

Fair enough.  But perhaps Lao people are not receiving as much education.

And before you dismiss my comments about western corporate culture out of hand, try experiencing it.  All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.  Laos is poor due to lack of access to the ocean, as you said.

The government doesn't even build schools in the poorest areas because they don't want them to think too much or they might realize they're being taken advantage of and left out of the development process. Simple as that.

No I'm not trying to dismiss what you're saying bout western culture. To certain extend I agree with ya.But
to me I think its a good thing.Case in point , I see a lot
of stuff coming out South Korea and Japan that has affect
on the younger generation. Why can't Laos absorb some
of the western way as well. Maybe it will lit a fire in them.
As for being a landlock country . If the government is thinking of future I think they can come up with all sort of
project and encourage foreign investment.But I know the
Laos government way to corrupt. They just lining their own
pocket. The reason why South Korea is doing so well was
through their investment in their youth. I think you are aware of their history.They were very poor after the war.Heck back in the 90 they were borrowing money from
the IMF.But all the Korean gave gold to repay their loan.
But their investment paying off too. Look at Samsung and
LG. I can go on and on. If I sound like I'm everywhere I
apologize. But I think we are on the same page.

I don't think Laos can do what Japan and South Korea did. Look at Thailand, a similar culture to Laos which received a lot of western influence. What have they produced? Japan and South Korea have innovative cultures, while Laos and Thailand do not.

I'm not denying that lack of access to the ocean plays a role in the poverty in Laos, but Lao people are also rather lazy, and I'm saying this from experience, being Lao myself. A lot of the men don't even work and just have their wives work while they lay at home drinking beer and watching TV. Many Thai men are the same way.

Man you hit this one out of the ball park . I totally agree
with you bout Laos men on being lazy. I have seen it with
my own eyes. When I use to go around pool hall and gambling hall.Majority of the older guys had their wives
out working while they out at pool hall and drinking coffee.
I could never understood why they would do that.Then
I see their children slack off in school and up to no good.
My bro had a kid when he finish high school he sent him
far away for college. He didn't want his only child being
influence by them.I mean the childrens of those loser.
Then they wonder why the Viets are doing so well.
Lazy is the key word here.

Post by TexasCowboy on 19th Jul, 2016 at 1:46pm
Lao people are among the laziest in the world. And if you bring it up, Lao people will get angry and blame their backward state on the US bombing campaign or Thai incursions. One reason why they are underdeveloped is because they are landlocked, just like Switzerland. Even when Lao people go to the US or other western countries they're poor and they talk shit about Chinese and Korean immigrants even though other Asian immigrants are far more successful and have far higher levels of wealth, prosperity, and education.

The Chinese are ultimately going to direct the future of Laos. To a lesser extent extent the Vietnamese. Lao people are going to become a minority group in their own country and they have nobody but themselves to blame for it. If your development strategy is selling off your assets and if the wealthiest people in the country are either glorified policemen or glorified prostitutes, you will never become great.

I hate being negative about Laos because the Lao people are also the most non-violent, approachable, and friendly people in the world. They also have the best posture of any group of people from my observations. But the cultural proclivity to lie, the lack of education or the desire for an education, the lack of a work ethic, and the feudal attitude are really holding back the Lao people.

It would be great if Laos was simply isolated from the rest of the world but in a global capitalist system intelligence and a work ethic are the only things that matter.

It sort of hurts to say, but I agree with everything TexasCowboy has to say about the Lao people. Laos could just be an extension to Yunnan, China someday. It's not very viable as an independent state. I guess if they made it isolated like Bhutan it would work, but it's already too late for that, plus it's unlikely given its strategic position as the gateway to Southeast Asia from China.

Bhutan is up there on a mountainous plateau, preventing easy access...Laos is smashed in between very popular destinations and a world superpower, but is still one of the world's poorest countries.

Bhutan has everything going for it. I really do love the fact that I am priced out of ever visiting the country because that means only a small number of wealthy tourists have access to the country. They also have a complete culture and have had a complete culture for centuries.

So it's hard to get a visa there I take it? I actually met some Bhutanese who were studying at an international school in Thailand. Biggest pair of retards I've ever met, but I won't judge from the small sample size.

Title: Re: How many type of tribes in Laos ?
Post by TexasCowboy on 21st Jul, 2016 at 5:57am
Getting a visa isn't the issue but you have to have a travel itinerary and an officially sponsored guide. It costs $250 per day to travel in Bhutan. The price includes food and accomodation, travel arrangements, tourist guide, tickets, etc.

It is possible to teach in Bhutan if you have a master's degree in education.

Funny because some American liberals I know were condemning Bhutan for their anti-globalist policies, comparing them to the Nazis. Apparently they kicked out some Nepalese living in the country for "not being Bhutanese", and they had to come to the US as refugees. These liberals threw them a party and actually referred to these Nepalese as "Bhutanese refugees." When I pointed out that the Bhutanese are a Mongoloid people and don't look South Asian their jaws just kind of dropped and they remained silent and changed the subject. American liberals are the worst.

Liberals are the most ignorant type of person and what is infuriating about them is that they think consider themselves to be enlightened humanists. The average liberal isn't used to arguing with someone who is informed so it's usually easy to catch them off guard.

Anyways, Bhutan is a tiny country with a tiny population. It's unreasonable to expect them to welcome Nepalese farmers with open arms. I have nothing against Nepalese people either. Many of them are friendly. But what could the Bhutanese possibly stand to gain by letting them into Bhutan?

Liberals are definitely the most ignorant type of person, and most that I have met are very anti-nation state. They think "we are all humans" and everyone should be able to move across borders freely. Most are very pro-EU as well, and they think ASEAN is going to be like the EU. I met one from Poland who was celebrating ASEAN as he thought it would be the end of distinct Southeast Asian national identities, and he said he hates rural culture and thinks all humans should unite. Their ideologies disgust me.

Another thing I've heard from liberals is that they want to remove the chains of nationality and create a free, borderless world with universal liberal values where men and women can date whoever they want in the world and work wherever they want without any restrictions. Might as well call them globalists at this point because that's what they are, supports of the NWO.

Exactly, it's the same with illegal Mexicans/South Americans coming into the US.  It's called zero value migration: they're a net drain on US society.

To be fair, I don't see it spreading to Southeast Asia much, at least during our lifetime. The reason that mentality exists is because of Western universities being controlled by Marxist ideals and professors indoctrinating these ideals to the students. This liberal mentality mainly exists among privileged upper middle class communities in the west. A lot of people in Southeast Asia don't even go to university and those that do don't go to quality ones where this type of curriculum is covered. I don't see Southeast Asia having a high human development index anytime soon. Southeast Asian women care too much about attracting men and getting "the D" to really become SJWs. None of them want to end up as old cat ladies, trust me on that.

Title: Re: How many type of tribes in Laos ?
Post by TexasCowboy on 27th Jul, 2016 at 3:13am
Laos is one of the most uncucked countries in the world. Same with Cambodia. It's one of many reasons why Laos is still awesome. Even if I were totally fluent in Lao I don't think it would really be possible to fully explain PC culture and cultural Marxism to people living in a nominally Marxist republic... LOL peterpan and Saovaluck probably have no idea about what we're talking about since they've never been exposed to this nonsense.

Lao people are brutally honest when it comes to certain issues. They prefer white skin and consider darker skin to be ugly. Most Lao consider Africans to be ugly and Lao people make fun of Indians and White people. It does suck to be on the receiving end of blatant racism but it is their country and a foreigner can either put up with it or get out.

Blatant racism is definitely better than being so inclusive that you end up destroying your own culture in the process. This is what the liberals are doing to the west presently. I was reading a liberal article earlier and it was just more tripe and the comments were also worthless. I've also met a lot of liberals in Cambodia and Laos and they are just complete morons. They speak maybe 500 words of the national language and this seems to be their cutoff point even if they've spent years in the country. Maybe someday I should apply for some sort of position at a NGO because these liberals do seem to have enough money to pay $3.50 for coffee and $2.50 for a dessert. They stay in the nicest areas. But besides the doctors and engineers and a few other skilled professions the NGO workers are useless. And these feminist NGO liberal types kick and scream about racism but they have a tendency to only date white men. But somehow their preferences are the fault of the evil cis white male who uses his white privilege to date local women instead of an entitled, most likely overweight snowflake. I once met a group of Peace Corps women and all of them without exception were overweight.

What is wrong about people wanting to stick to with their own and wanting their race to remain pure? If you want to mix, then by all means go for it. But why should you expect everyone to hand you a trophy or expect society to treat your union as equal when your partner is an outlander?

Most East Asians weren't subjected to twelve years of cultural Marxist brainwashing during their formative years so they generally rely on their instincts instead of a lame ideology. They still demand their women to look good and they are naturally more wary of foreigners. As a consequence, they are generally way more enthusiastic when they see foreigners taking an interest in their culture because it is still a rarity. Most E. Asian countries are homogeneous so the people are also more trusting towards foreigners who are making an effort to integrate.

Now a liberal will say "Well what about Laos, look at the ethnic diversity" But the fact is that most of the population practices Buddhism. The animists have their own religions but their religions aren't of a universalist type. Most of the animists are going to end up speaking Lao and later Chinese anyways. And the example of Laos actually proves my point because there is a serious conflict between the Hmong and the Lao and there are problems and disputes between the highlanders. But the ethnic groups in Laos are pretty similar to one another. There isn't the cultural gap between say Mexicans and White Americans or even blacks and White Americans.

To address your post Mak Nad: From my observations most of these western ladies think they're going to find someone. They think that men want to get married just as much as women do.  They think that it is empowering to only take from a relationship without giving anything back.  And women (yes, statistically it is women) are voting for laxer immigration policies. But how could western women have turned out any differently when they've been taught to see the world this way during their formative years in school and later during their college years?

Even my mom who has lived in America for a few decades doesn't understand PC culture or even know what it is. That just goes to show you why Marxism is targeted at children. Many Southeast Asians grow up with a natural outlook on the world, and don't understand propaganda.

About the animists speaking Lao and the Lao speaking Chinese, there's a probability of it happening, but it would probably take about a century or two for everyone to completely switch. I've seen some very young kids and wives in their 30s in Laos (of the animist variety) who can't even speak Lao. Some can speak it but not fluently. Unless the Lao government resettles them in the middle of Lao people or gives them world class education, I don't see it changing easily. If you know Tad Lo in Salavan, there is a small slum area to the left of the main waterfalls, back down the road a bit. That entire neighborhood is Ta-Oy animists, but the Lao people own the resorts in the area and run the businesses. Everyone in the Ta-oy slum speaks Ta-Oy and none are Buddhist, but the Lao are actually developing the slum and building some mansions among the shacks. 

As for China, in Southern Yunnan province, Tai-Kadai languages are still flourishing, and that area is legitimately part of China. So if any of these changes happen it'll be long after we die.

As for western women being taught to see the world a certain way, I was raised around this my entire life as well and taught the same things but I somehow managed to avoid the brainwashing. I was never liberal...never, even having been raised in California. I just always got irritated whenever the teachers started preaching their Marxist values and kinda shut it out, brushed it off as bullshit. I can't say the same for the other students.

Tai-Kadai is OK in Guang Xi Province some areas of Yunnnan Province near Guang Xi Province. The language is dying in the areas in Yunnnan. The reason younger generation is leaving.  ;D ;D ;D.

Even my mom who has lived in America for a few decades doesn't understand PC culture or even know what it is. That just goes to show you why Marxism is targeted at children. Many Southeast Asians grow up with a natural outlook on the world, and don't understand propaganda.

About the animists speaking Lao and the Lao speaking Chinese, there's a probability of it happening, but it would probably take about a century or two for everyone to completely switch. I've seen some very young kids and wives in their 30s in Laos (of the animist variety) who can't even speak Lao. Some can speak it but not fluently. Unless the Lao government resettles them in the middle of Lao people or gives them world class education, I don't see it changing easily. If you know Tad Lo in Salavan, there is a small slum area to the left of the main waterfalls, back down the road a bit. That entire neighborhood is Ta-Oy animists, but the Lao people own the resorts in the area and run the businesses. Everyone in the Ta-oy slum speaks Ta-Oy and none are Buddhist, but the Lao are actually developing the slum and building some mansions among the shacks. 

As for China, in Southern Yunnan province, Tai-Kadai languages are still flourishing, and that area is legitimately part of China. So if any of these changes happen it'll be long after we die.

Your teachers preach Marxist values in economic area or idealogical area? I think they teach in a balance way, both the values are precious in future life. 

I think what confuses you is why the driver turns on left light while zipping right and the driver is still alive well. I solved this puzzle in 1996 in Pattaya  ;D ;D ;D

So they go to the city for money and they don't ever go home? What about when they get married? Do they marry another Dai or do they marry a Han Chinese?

Maybe they marry another Dai but the kid is born in the city and speaks only Yunanese/Mandarin?

yes, as you said, it just happens. their kids speak Chinese, not their own language, even the parents have the same minority root, their kids can understand, yet, not speak, this is the best senario, usually, their kids dont speak and dont understand. I have many friends just like this.  It is pity. I am trying to learn their language.

This is obvious for a kid that's born in the city, but what about leaving the kids with the grandparents while they work in the city? Then they grow up with people of their own race. Thats what I usually see in Southeast Asia. Not all people who work in the city move there permanently. Most just rent a room near their job and when they're done they go back home.

I was trying to find a few articles on the Chinese wikipedia to explain to Peter what we mean by cultural Marxism but there are no entries that explain the phenomenon.

彼得:Cultural Marxism is different from the Marxist ideology that the Chinese government promotes. Instead of class awareness, modern so-called scholars in the United States promote identity awareness. In other words, society is interpreted by looking at certain attribute that signify privilege. Signs of privilege are any trait that was traditionally assosciated with America's cultural norm. For example: being a heterosexual is seen as a form of privilege because homosexuals were traditionally oppressed. Being white is considered another form of privilege because blacks were traditionally an underclass. Being male is seen as a form of privilege because males held more prominent positions in society. Being a cis gendered is considered a form of privilege because transgendered people were traditionally persecuted by society.

However, the ideology more or less teaches students to hate individuals who are white, male, and heterosexual. A white, heterosexual male is the devil in the eyes of the American Marxist...

Thank you very much,cowboy, for the explaination of Cultural Marxism.  Seems I should apply for a course in USA for it.  I am very surprised at the American cultural norms traditionally.  They  must be deep rooted if they are still there considering the Intenet of Things.

They really need to read more than watching Kardashian show. Amazing!!!

;D

Sorry for far off the original topic.

Let us go back to the tribes. Maybe some participants can make a list of them.

Hey you guys I was watching some show on utube lastnight. Anyway it was bout Cambodian people that commit crimes and they got deported back.
I think it was Bush who sign the law back in 1996.
These guys they were talking like ghetto black .I mean
they thought were crazy stuff like they didn't deserve to be
kick out.They sound so dumb and ignorance. Just curious what you guys take on it ? I have some good friends that are Cambodian and they think these idiots deserve it.

There are also Lao Americans who talk like they're black and want to be gangsters. It's pathetic.
Of course a country is going to deport criminals. What do you expect the government to do, give them a free house for committing murder? The US government has a duty to protect the American people and one way to protect the American people is to deport non-citizen criminals.

The real Asian gangsters are the triads. They don't mess around. Here is one of the most interesting gangsters of all time. He spent his later years living in Cambodia:

I have seen that documentary about the Cambodian refugees being sent back home. Most came to the US when they were very little and never became a citizen. They've done the same with refugees from El Salvador and other Central American nations, that's how the 18th street and MS-13 gangs grew in Central America. Luckily these idiots didn't found gangs in Cambodia and cause more crime. I think this was actually good for them in a way.

As for the Lao gangsters, Laos would for sure not accept them back. Growing up in the hood will probably do that to anyone, you don't get much intellectual stimulation there. I've even seen whites who grew up in the ghetto act like that, so it's not so much about race, more poverty and bad influences.
