Chairman loves the West deeply enough to point out its shortcomings

Guys, Chairman's is a soul-searching analysis and Montblanc's admonition should not be dismissed lightly.

Both are correct.

The West is dying like Buchanan is saying in his book "The Death of the West," but what Montblanc is saying is that the Chinese people, by blindly imitating the bad habits of the West, may become infected with the same disease that has afflicted the West for centuries.  

The Chinese people may not be sufficiently aware of what they are doing (like the learning of English in 'all-English environments'  at the pre-school level to the exclusion of everything else) to stop the propagation of this disease, especially when a large number of these people have neglected the study of their own history and culture.  Just look at the American and Japanese cartoons the kids are watching and you'd know my worries are not unfounded.

So the Chinese masses need to be educated about their own history and traditions.  That's a job for us that cannot be delayed any more.  If you will, please go to the McDonalds in every city and see how increasingly obese Chinese kids have become, enjoying only Western pop culture including food and music, and you'd understand Montblanc is right.

In fact, any laowais love China more than some Chinese people do.

So afterall, ironically the dying may not be really dead and the living may not be really alive.  This is especially true when you realize that Spengler had been talking about the "Decline of the West" more than a century ago and yet the West is still very much alive.

We should thank both for their wisdom.

Classic chairman!

Good points.   The West has only itself to blame for its long slow slide.
