Japan actually is a perfect example of the west manipulating and screwing a country that is suppos ...

Another example of how the Capitalist West screws up non-Western countries is Russia. After the demise of the Soviet Union, Western Capitalists (together with Russian oligarchs) took turns looting Russia and left it for broke. So bad was the economic deprivation that life expectancy in Russia actually went down by five years!!! Putin literally saved Russia from being turned into yet another screwed-up Third World country.

I would be stupid to say that other countries (like China) should slavishly copy the civilization an ...

You will note that I included Japan in "the West". Yes, "Western ways" were forced on the Japanese elites (military and economic) by the US. But the Japanese have taken good advantage of this - and enjoy a very high standard of living. (Also South Korea (ROK), Taiwan and Singapore!)

In just a few decades, Meiji Japan had already achieved a high standard of living before it embarked on its imperialist course, long before the "West", namely the US, pacified Japan.


China is taking its own "route" to adopting the modern ways to prosperity and social justice. The process remains under the guidance of the Communist Party of China. But the CPC is an essentially "Western" organization. Socialism and Communism are, after-all, very "Western"!

Chinese Socialism is Asian not Western while Soviet Communism is Eastern not Western.


China should indeed take care to not copy the MISTAKES "the West" has made. Indeed, "the West" may benefit greatly from learning some lessons from China!
