We humans CAN be better than animals, but in reality, we are worse than them.

You and Ted are both right- some people only understand and respect the law of the jungle. The Asians need to learn SOME of the tactics and assume the characteristics of the West. They will need to be more assertive and even aggressive and use power without being apologetic or shy. They will need to do this simply to survive as independent people. Once they reach parity with the West, they can then try to focus on being more like their natural, peaceful and passive type.
It is a lot like the basis of gun laws - how they made USAnians talk politely and smartly with each other to start with. It will develop a culture of mutual 'respect' -- which in western terms includes an element of fear (or actually is a synonym for fear), unlike another form of 'respect' that we know in the East - one that has elements of love and regard.

Humans can't help being competitive. The world was always a jungle. But, with thoughtfulness, we can tame it quite a bit.
What's on your mind...

Really KIyer! Asians are so peaceful? Was not Genghis Khan an Asian? How about Attila the Hun? The Japanese during the war? Pol Pot in Cambodia? This idealization is too far-fetched.
