The decay of Chinese civilization started from 1200s. Yuan Dynasty (1271~1368) and Qing Dynasty (1636~1911) were kind of the periods of barbarism in Chinese long history. Millions of Chinese were killed. The advancement of civilization was halted. Many achievements disappeared. It was the first time in history that Han Chinese was at the lowest social status among Races (Ethic groups) in Chinese official laws. It was kind of like Dark Ages and Middle Ages following the fall of Western Rome Empire in Europe.

A stride into Industrial Civilization in Europe started from 1600s. The breakthrough of modern science and technology dramatically changed society and brought the modern military weapons. Modern military weapons made European countries to get new land, new resources, new markets, and new wealth. Military weapons granted European conquerors the social superiors in any land they found.

Unfortunately, Asian societies represented by Chinese society were still strapped in Agricultural Civilization. In 1800s, British traders brought huge of Opium to China. The deteriorations were accelerated by the spread of opium in China. Western European conquerors had ever killed huge amount of native people in American continent and Oceania. Of course Drug trade was not a big deal in European moral guides at all. There was nothing wrong when it came to more lands, more resources, more markets, and more wealth. White people were naturally superior in their game rules.

From a post in one forum, it said:

ROC (1911~1949) was a product of "overturning Qing Dynasty and reinstating Ming Dynasty". In Qing Dynasty, Han Chinese was at the lowest social status in official laws.

After the collapse of ROC in mainland China in 1949, The government of PRC, especially from the beginning of Deng's reform, made Han Chinese to be the lowest social status in official laws and in practices again.
