It is universal .
This is a hot topic in every corner of the globe, not just China. Bad manners and anti-social , selfish activities are on the rise, not decline. To target Chinese per se is both right and wrong.
There is no doubting the badly behaved Chinese are a pain in the neck . They barge ahead in a queue, they don't say " please " or " sorry " and they spit and litter. In a society of 1,300,000,000 people in the thick flux of change, anti-social elements like these are inevitable. The modern clean streets, public toilets , waste bins and public squares are new to a lot of these folks from the country with poor education. Thus in simple terms, it is EDUCATION. To achieve a civic consciousness and to develop an attitude that we are all sharing the same space. Dirtying a shared space is to dirty your own place. It has to be accompanied by enforcements and fines. Look at Singapore and replicate it by 120 times and we will be there.
The rest of the world is not innocent . The west is particularly big in pollution. They just farm it or ship it to someone else's place for a fee. Personally , there is a constant lack of manners in any train , bus or plane you travel in in the west too. I think these anti-social behaviour should be discussed as a generic term , not a Chinese context alone.
