Speaking as an ethnic Chinese, I think we have one of the most destructive culture/mental modes in the world. Selfishness and Self-Centeredness. “Middle Kingdom” is a misnomer which don’t capture the true meaning of the word 中国. The country’s name is literally “Center Kingdom”, as in the center of the world.
I know of people who read and watch Chinese produced propaganda and treat the lies about the West as gospel. It’s disgusting how the Chinese portray U.S. after the US trade policies built up China.
Most Favoured Trading Nation. Technical Assistance. Advisors. For China. History that I lived through. All never mentioned.
Gratitude is always a virtue taught in the Chinese system. But that’s jettisoned in the name of nation building by the party. It’s disgusting.
Edit: The way they monitor people in the land of other countries reflects how they see the world. Like how they think they own South China Sea.
