What do you like best about people raised in modern-Chinese culture?

[Note: This Q is posted just so that not everyone should think that I'm a total a$$hole.]
PEACE. Anyone???
@wiliam – If you have Ten-cents, there is a "Pony" you can ride. LOL
Jimmy Wales loves PRC investments!
@Lone – I wasn’t trying to attack anyone or anything. I was just hoping to hear something positive for a change.

I’d say the overall work ethic that is prevalent. Sure, there are lazy bums, like anywhere, but let’s face it . . . China hasn’t developed the way it has in the past 30 years without a lot of plain and simple work. People have discovered that hard work can pay off. Sure, connections are still quite an integral part of this society, but the common guy can still do okay by the work of his/her hands. They are not sitting back, waiting for a handout from the government . . . they are out working.

Also, people in China have the same basic dreams that most people have . . . get married, get a decent job, have a child, provide well for that child, enjoy retirement, etc. Citizens of China are citizens by "fate." We don’t choose where we are born . . . just because someone is born in China and is a part of Chinese culture, doesn’t make them a lesser person.

The people of China are overall, proud of the accomplishments of the past three decades. They are equally ashamed of the failures of the past six decades. However, they have national pride and they do not like outsiders to criticize those failures.

Just because one doesn’t like the government of a nation, doesn’t mean that that same person can paint the entire citizenry with the same brush. To say, "the only good thing to buy in China is a ticket out of the country," is to condemn a nation of people who are trying to better their own lives. As an English idiom says, "There but for the grace of God, go I."

    I’m assuming what you meant are Chinese who are strictly from China; those with their own preserved culture.

    First off, I’m not really found of them, even thought I’m Asian, solely because of their erratic behaviors, and lack of etiquette. And believe me, majority of them smokes, talk way to loud for no apparent reason and in the wrong setting, are extremely racist, violent, and manipulative. They don’t have the etiquette to even analyze the situation, but they instead do whatever they wish. (e.x)- Some Asian from Asia kills animals and cook them for dinner; while here in USA, we preserve out natural species. You see, the different between ABC (American Born Chinese) and Asians from Asia is that we grow up in a different societies with different demographics and environment, we were taught differently, we have different school system, we speak/write/learn differently, and we certainly, after ruling out the rest, have different intuitions in regard to the way we carry ourselves. I’m guessing it has something to do with the governments policy in China; those in communist countries are constantly being detained and they have menial opportunities in freedom of speeches, and social expression since the governments and the police forces are constantly breathing down their necks. Then again, even thought I’m not too found of them but I they still deserve respect from our Asian decedents. My parents migrated to USA so I can be an NY citizen with all these opportunities; so no hate from me. :D

    If I were ten years younger…..

    The girls/women there are much much less restrained! Ten/fifteen years ago in transitional China dating was a long painstaking process. 6-12 months later you might get her in the sack. Today sex on a second or third date is A-OK.

    But tbh Ive grown out of sport sex these days.

    The question is a bit vague, there are many Chinese around the world, and we live in a modern society. Chinese people who have migrated and been living in other countries for quite some time have adopted to a new lifestyle and environment. For the other Chinese in China, mainlanders have also quite a modern culture, one which does not sound too favorable. The lack of moral grounds and integrity have lead many mainlanders believing that tangible wealth is worth more than a life. Mowing down toddlers may not be a national sport in China but there are certain angles wherein it seems like it. Perhaps the best thing we can see in this is they are able to live with the guilt, and move on like nothing happened, surprisingly.

    they are influenced by all the world and cultures, they hear korea, jap, american songs all the time, and in tv they watch american films, indian dramas, korean dramas, taiwanese dramas and hongkong films, where in west peaple only watch yankees films and dramas, songs and go to macdonald’s, omogenean culture is not good.

    Hello, WNL….umm first off I hope you aren’t trying to attack "ancient" Chinese culture..if you are attacking the current PRC Government-regulated culture, then I have no issues with that as I as some issues with it myself. I don’t blame the "people"….just the Government (PRC)…Although Taiwanese people are generally more civilized and in touch with their Chinese culture. But yeah I hope you’re talking about the PRC-culture, not ancient Chinese culture.

    Regards.
