Where is the utopia you describe? Young people too tired and controlled to think for themselves. Crowded, dirty, and polluted cities where people go hither and yon with very little idea of what they are living for. The chinese have grown up with nothing and now that they have something they are unable to learn courtesy or the slightest of polite gestures. There is an army base in every city and town. Is this necessary? I think not. The Chinese are over taxed and taught what to say and think. They have no idea of what a true opinion is. Ask a young person what their hobbies are and you will get one answer, playing video games because they have so little time for relaxation or introspective that to sit for a few private moments in front of a computer screen is like their utopia. Utopia my hindquarters. I don't know which China you live in but it isn't the one I live in.
