China invented the paper on which everything in the west is printed, the computer notwithstanding.  China invented paper money, on which the entire western financial system is founded.  And true, China had not invented much in the past 150 years under the onslaught of the British, French and Japanese, but one thing it invented, the west missed out completely in its triumphalist exceptionalism about its role as the savior of the world.  China invented the Third World, which was a concept created by Mao and Zhou.  It seems to have effectively counterbalanced the First World, just by its sheer weight and numbers.  It also re-invented itself, with China now becoming the biggest creditor country in the world, despite a century of foreign invasions and half a century of economic embargoes.  Now, which country can claim to have created BOTH the Third World and a New China?  How does the invention of a single technology or weapons systems compare with the rise of the Third World or the security and prosperity of the biggest nation in the world?  Is someone here missing the forest in the trees?

That is just a Western philosophy's in Chinese language, not original

You should read more. Chinese leaders have been using this term for the past 30 years or more.
It is part of Scientific socialism and was hinted at as early as the 1950s by Mr. Mao himself.
Do you think God was a western too?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
