Frankly, the government has many more important things to do than spending time and efforts in micro-managing such silly issues.

崇洋媚外 Worship the West, Enchanted by the Foreign.

In New China, the greed of the elites knows no bounds. The economic and social changes brought about by Reform and Opening Up are like a frothing, foaming, tossing sea, upon which it is flotsam and garbage that inevitably rise the fastest to the very top - the corrupt rulers, naked officials and crooked, bestial, predatory business big wigs. They will sell their own mother for money, power and position.

Scrambling after them are the pseudo intellectuals, academia and educators who fight for the fat crumbs falling off the gravy train. The universities especially are dens of decadence, run by fraudsters and charlatans cloaked in their counter-revolutionary foreign or local academic credentials.  

It is no use merely regulating place names (or removing the christian cross from church buildings) as the fundamental cause lies with the entire education system and the negligence of its administrators and decision-makers. The education of China's youth is left wanting badly in national spirit and pride.

Why is worship of all things occidental very much less pervasive in South Korea and Japan? Even where they do imitate the West, it is very largely adapted to and transformed by unmistakable local culture.  

By contrast, a very large part of New China's society and populace have no sense of shame. They outdo themselves to be the naked exhibitionist laughing stock in the eyes of every foreigner who comes to China, whose every more, fetish and value command their mindless devotion and are the sole validation of their worth and self-esteem.

This self-inflicted shame is worse than the 100 years of humiliation suffered at the hands of foreigners 150 years ago, for this is the New China standing naked for all the world to see. China will be disembowelled from the inside unless something resolute is done to stop the rot.
