One only has to look at China's urbanization to see such mediocrity in action. Medium-sized cities are copying what bigger cities are doing, and smaller cities are copying from neighboring cities.
+++++++++++++++++++

East Asian countries had ever copied Chinese timber building before 1800.

Countries around the world have copied the steel and concrete building from West Europ and U.S.A after industrial revolution.

In China, we need to balance diversity - local culture including local architectual style - and the whole Chinese culture.  But small cities need to learn a lot from large cities. large cities need to learn a lot from industrial society around the world in city development.

for example: Do we need to go on drive the poor Chinese away from metropolis, from other cities by Hukou and other policies.

Do we go on robbing the poor Chinese and provide large amounts of special government service to rich Chinese in city development?

Urbanization is more than the city texture, the slums, the high rise building, the icon building, the urban planning.

So what can happen on the paper of that day?  Isn't it as thick as before like your small changes in the pockets.  About the confidence to the medias or the teaching machines in the campous, any experienced adults will tell their own chilren the truth in their own eyes.

Few of people can change the environment.

China's Kiang kai-shek and Mao Zedong

Germany's Hiltler

UK's Churchill

USA's Washington

and so on...


Most of people have to adapt to the local environment.

tell the truth in their own eyes to their own children.
+++++++++++++++++
It's not the key point.

The key point is that they themsleves and their children dare not to doubt or at least show doubt about the so called truth.

Most of them have already lost the ability to question, to analyze, to independently think.

Later and later their own children would lose the ability too.

For example:
Why was mainland China poor?  
The textbook from 1980s said some of decisive factors were too many people, too small land, too few of mines and other resources, etc in mainland China.
It was truth because Deng Xiaoping said so (agree with that).

Most of Chinese force themselves to believe it. Experts in every area would present tons of analysis to testify how it is right after a government leader said it is right.
They never try to testify by themsleves. They don't search and compare the conclusions (government leaders) with other different opinions.
