On China’s Failures and Successes
China is well poised to overcome the US on so many levels. Despite this, We Americans need to refocus our energies on education, creativity and technological progress. Not only must we build better mousetraps and products, but we must also build better character in ourselves and our children. If we do this, we won’t need to fear China, but celebrate her successes and mourn when she fails as well.

As a Chinese, I want to say that, we are perfect copiers but not creators. Our government won’t let us create too much cause the sense of creating is coming with too many other things such as independent thinking. Once the citizens learn how to think independently, the government would lose control.

That is the smartest comment I have read for the year. Character and morality does sustain a nation in the LONG RUN (60 years), though Poker playing can win in the short run.
I am no expert in Foreign relations but I am an expert in human behavior. We fear what we know little about. It’s easy to fear other nations and cultures that are not like ours, but does this help us and lift man as a species? No. It undermines all of us and eventually leads to our demise. Instead of casting the stone at others consider your own shortcoming and ignorance. What are you doing to succeed? Are you blaming others and justifying your actions through hate and ignorance?
Today’s Thought of the day: I will embrace the differences in others and celebrate their successes and mourn their losses. I will stand up for truth regardless if it is popular or not.
