Re: Absolute BS

This is what Americans ACTUALLY believe.

I've lived in both countries for a fair few years, and your narrative couldn't be more divorced from reality.

What you're missing is that people have different world-views and priorities. It's not that Chinese people aren't aware of the differences to western countries, but they see it very differently. The more traditional Chinese people think we (westerners) are the ones who have things wrong, while the younger ones like to cherry-pick aspects of western culture, but are still proud to be Chinese which is at its core, a Confucian mindset.

Russians overall support strong, authoritative government, which is why they have what they have.

Try living in other countries for long enough to understand their culture. Until you do, your education will never be complete, and you're basically still a child.
