What the Heck is This Cultural Tradition That is Being Lost?
Is China losing its cultureal tradition, and if so, is it such a bad thing? |
Like, we can start with the Feudal System, which had been in place most of China's 5,000 years of history. During that entire period, with the exception of perhaps only the last 300 years, China was the richest and most technologically advanced nation on earth. Her people were wearing silks whilst the Europeans were proverbially "still swining on trees." So can a case be argued that the feudal system was a good thing, and part of China's cultural tradition? I think the answer is yes.
Yet will anyone seriously defend keeping the feudal system for China?
The CPC said NO to feudalism a long time ago, and I for one believe that was a smart choice. Dalai opposed the decisons of the central government, and look at where he is today.
In order for China to get back to her rightful place in history, and to make this 21st century truly the China Century, Socialism With Chinese Characteristics must be flexible - amplify what works, and discard what doesn't. It does not matter whether the poison weeds came from age old "Chinese tradition" or was imported from Timbuktu, if it is harmful, get rid of it. Only through trial and error, and constant vigilance, can the government of the people take good care of the nation.
