Don't blame anybody else' lifestyle or way of living since you are not them seneca.  Because you can ...

Don't tear up your diary, Incarnate. It might contain your private telephone number, the names of your mother and your father, your birth place and your address. Imagine if you had no diary, knowing how short your memory is - it would be a catastrophe.

Apparently, this seems to be a Chinese tradition. Back in my Uni days, I had the 'privilege' of seeing a bunch of exchange students from China tearing up lecture notes in front of me after their exams. I didn't think much of it then.
BTW, I still have most of my lecture notes, 15 years after graduation. And actually I still refer to them once in a blue moon.

why do you recycle these questions? are you out of ideas, or are you looking for some specific answer?

it's extremely disrespectful to tear up books that you are supposed to obtain knowledge from. looks like they learned nothing in school or from the teachers or from their parents. why bother even trying to get an education? knowledge is not given to disrespectful people, remember that.

It is not real Chinese tradition. It's probably the new communist Chinese tradition.

I was taught to respect books in my family (real Chinese). I even feel uncomfortable throwing unused whole textbooks into the trash. We would donate them.
