One thing which always irks me about the Chinese/Taiwanese/HKese is that the Chinese/Taiwanese/HKese youths are too bloody obedient to their parents. An obedience and subservience which results in the retarded growth of too many Chinese/Taiwanese/Hkese youths whom I know in my life.
When a human allows other humans to dictate the direction of his or her own life, the growth and maturity of that particular human will be stunted. It is like forcing a plant or a flower to grow sideways by tying it down with a string instead of letting the plant or flower grow straight into the sky which is its true destiny.
An example of bloody idiotic Chinese/Taiwanese/HKese youths' blind obedience to their parents is exemplified by this thread where the OP of that thread had to get a fake boyfriend in order to appease the incessant nagging of her parents who are out in arms to get her married off.

Cases like this are dime a dozen in the chinese/taiwanese/hkese culture, i kid you not.

For some the parent-child relationship is fine (in any given culture) for others it is not. But we can't escape the parent-child relationship. For centuries it has worked and produced an ever growing population – this is the only purpose of any life-form. I understand the need to find 'a path'. To know what the hell is going on. But preaching to others with half cooked ideas is not the way. Enlightenment is a singular path and you can not offer your own enlightenment to others for they need to seek there own, if any at all. Don't expect anyone to listen, follow or understand. Don't waste your time posting quack messages on here. Tuning in and dropping out is lazy and far from solving the worlds problems. When did any esoteric movement heal the world? The world (as in a metaphor) is locked in a constant battle of light and dark, this is the balance, it won't change. The Ying and Yang if you like, although to me it's just the struggle of life (in the personal sense).
Magic is magic, it's not real. Don't let magic reflect on your real life.

Because a nation of subservient children will never grow up to become a nation of leaders. A nation of subservient children will always remain a nation of subservient slaves, always kowtowing to other races or nations.
Most parents in the world today, regardless of their race, nationality or age, are miserable failures as human beings.

Also, you are aware that Japan is screwed economically, right? It's demographics are also insane. That place is going to collapse under the weight of all those oldies getting socialised medicine, and all those weirdo urban hipsters who aren't having children because that's what their square parents did. Japan is not moving in the right direction. It's driving off a cliff.
That's not to say the Chinese speaking world is where it's at either, merely to say that Japan is definitely not where it's at.
