以老师、音乐人、社会学家出场的马克力文,在节目中谈了他切身体会到的中美关系的变化,以及他认为如何促进中美关系的发展:

What is your understanding of changes in how foreigners, particularly Americans, are seen in China.

 As Spring Festival is approaching I am reminded of my last two Spring Festivals.  Each of the last two years I spent Spring Festival in the countryside in southern Hubei Province.  I met many Chinese farmers who have little to no contact with foreigners from the United States or any other country.

 In the past would not have been welcomed there but now, that is not the case now.  I was a welcomed guest. When I came back the second year, I was now an old friend.  We talked and shared stories, ate and drank and played together.  They were not just willing but were happy to open their lives, homes, traditions and customs to me.

  What are your personal ideas about how to build the relations between the US and China stronger?

 Let me quickly say two things about this

 First, there is the song that I sang a few lines of… Gan Wen Lu Zai He Fang.  That is from the story of Journey to the West and actually that is why I picked that, in honor of President Hu’s journey to the west.  The point of those is when you have an important goal you are reaching for, there will be obstacles and problems that you encounter on the way to achieve it.  The important things are that you must keep that goal in front of you and

you can’t give up.  You stay on that road until you reach it.

 The second thing is about the phrase that President Hu repeated in the man reports about his trip to the US.  He said that relations between China and the US must be based on MUTUAL REPECT.

 For most of us when we are facing something that we are not familiar with, that is big and powerful, our first thought is not RESPECT. Instead, maybe we first feel a little fear.  Respect requires some knowledge and understanding.  So the second requirement for the continued building of positive relations between the two countries is building those relations people … American’s learning about China, Chinese history, culture, art, music, and so on and Chinese people learning those same things about the US.  With this, we can stay on the road and reach our goal.
