Winston Churchil was an evil man

Don't argue with idiots! They will always win. First they drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience!
When the power of love, overtakes the love of power,  the world will have peace.

How Singapore treats its citizens.

China may have a horrible culture but Chinese culture is not a ...

This is not Chinese culture, it is every peoples culture! Treating old, young, sick, look basically everyone with respect is as old as earth! That some people lose their manners and/or are uncouth plays a part.

This is one of my pet hates...stating oh this country has a hegemony of manners etc. For example Japan. I have too many dealings with japanese to think the bowing/itadakimasu has anything to do with civility/manners.... indeeed yesterday I grumpily said to a Japanese, why clap hands together and yell itadakimasu..what does it meant to you? Of course it meant nothing to her.just  habiit taught as a school kid and unthinking taken through life

Do Chinese people really treat older people with respect more than people in North Africa for example?

Apprioprating things like courtesy, respect, civility by a race or group is a nonsense. The only thing Singapore tops in Poll is the amount of $ millionaires......so if you love that sort of thing, then of course Singapore is paradise.

Ha! National Socialism is a great economic system. It is a hybrid just like China's National Socia ...

Would you have wanted rule by nazi tyranny instead ?

Nazi Germany's economic system was an illusion.  Hitler sacked the economic genius-Shacht-who made it possible to finance the arms industry and autobahn construction through complex loans-and replaced him with Goering.

Because Shacht warned Hitler of the economy overheating.

By 1940 their national debt was 40 billion marks.

The democratic models are best in theory but you need strong government to control the excesses of Capitalism.

I like the Scandinavian governments but the price for their large public sector is very high direct taxation.

I prefer that. Strong government........a thing of the past.

At least, I won't be worried about decent  nursery, primary and high schools!
