air pollution isnt a problem in all of china. hainan has no air pollution. i dont think food is any less safe than the usa. some of the most deadly food is mcdonalds. watch the movie super size me. property price is not as bad as europe. go to hong kong, and youll see real bad property prices, often times 5 times more than the main land. whats wrong with the education system? as much as people like to sensationalize western education, western education is failed by the obvious decadent nature of main stream western society. and as a muslim, you should know how haram the west is. in addition to the decadence, the west is also plagued by violence. people are taught to be violence and not particularly violent by nature. i also have not particularly noticed that the west values education all that much. when you watch hollywood films, you hardly see anyone studying. what you do see students do is get drunk; get high; sleep around; fight; and play sports.

I agree with the most of what you said. By the way, I don't know how you can give me the title of a Muslim , I am a former Muslim and now an atheist because I know a lot about religions ! For the propriety price I compare it to my home country not to hobgkong . Food is also not very safe no matter how less safe is it in the United States . United States is not the standard for everything!

well i dont think you have to be a muslim. all you have to do is come from a more civilized country like pakistan, sri lanka, bangladesh, turkey, india, arabia, persia, and you can see the decadence of the west. the us is not the standard for everything, but i dont see any foreigners writing blogs about american food safety issues. everything we write should be balanced, and it's a turn off to see one sided conversations. i dont believe food in china is safe, but everything needs to be put in context, and no one should believe that chinese food is any worse than american, or european. context is important because very few bloggers complain about how expensive housing is in europe. all they talk about is how romantic it is. just because no one talks about unsafe food in europe is because europe is politically obedient, and therefore scandals are supresed. in fact, i wouldnt be surrprised if the "international media" goes out of its way to cover up scandals for the politcally obedient japan, singapore, europe, and all the other lackeys. when george zimmerman killed a black guy, the media went out of its way to hide his juwish background, despite his ju name. had he been a muslim, all hel would have broken loose. and on they would go about mocking islam the religion of peace

dont play yourself. we werent born yesterday. western education at its best teaches people to think for themselves. unfortunately, 99% of western education isnt at its best. ive also noticed that the more educated you are, the less you are able to think for yourself, because as you say, youve had stuff crammed down your throat, both at home, and abroad. unfortunately, if you want to pass exams, you better think like the establishment, and this is definitely the case in the west. i;ll go even one step further, and say that the west offers scholarships to foreigners precisely to brain wash people, and gain more followers for their empire. you walk away from western universities not with the ability to think for yourself, but to think more like the western elite. and thats why they give you free "education." and western education does NOT teach people to help others. western education, like all other capitalist education teaches you to help yourself, first and foremost. that is at the center of the capitalist mindset. look at all these western charities. they take money from people, and keep 90% of the donations for themselves. yes, thats the educated west for you. pay close attention to white westerners in china, very fey, give money to the homeless. on the other hand, ive seen africans, and muslims give much more than westerners. lets be real here, if educated westerners were so giving, they wouldnt be as rich as they are. as they say in the west, nice guys finish last. so guess who finishes first? theres definitely a pattern between education and selfishness, at least in the west. and all education, whether western or chinese teach people to conform. all the european monarchies, and there are lots of them, brain wash you into thinking that the royal families are good, and they should be kept around. cramming stuff down kids throats eh? kind of like how western countries cram down kids throats that muslims are bad.

guess they dont pay shils enough to write more than one liners these days. so whats the yardstick of your mesiah? voa? thanks but no thanks. lets not kid ourselves. no hollywood film gets made without prior approval from the ruling class elite, therefore the overall direction of hollywood must conform to the values, and agenda of the western capitalist oligarky. and there have been instances, more often than not, of hollywood films being changed, or altered midway through because it didnt fit the agenda of the oligarky. anyone who isnt working for sybercom should know that agents of the oligarky work closely, every step of the way, to determine what is shown in hollywood films, and what isnt.  hollywood films directly reflect the corupt racist; violent; sexist; dedadent; doped up; classist values of its masters. even your most loyal lackys like li kuan yu saw the filth in hollywood, and rock music. he tried to resist but west ultimately put him in his place. 2 yrs ago, hollywood came out with a movie wanting to asasinate the north korean president. 2 yrs later, the chrump regime is talking about asasinating kim. 2 people, 1 brain. the hollywood gatekeepers share the same brain with the ruling class elite. you either make movies that conform to what the oligarks say, or you dont make movies at all. where's all that "thinking for yourself"? guess thats out the window. with the decay of western family structures, young westerners have nowhere to look for guidance other than hollywood films. this is a problem discusssed even by the western liberal circles. its a sad fact, but thats what capitalism brings you. and lets not act like europe is some separate entity to america. europe does not breath unless given permission to by usa. the hundreds of bases ensure total dominance, and nothing less, particularly dominance of the minds.

I agree with you about wether western education has its own agenda or not and also about helping one another and human kind as a whole , yes western people " based on my own experience " are less hospitable and helpful than the people of poor countries that I have known . However , we can't deny that western education is good for the outcome we see , the most creative and intelligent people are educated and taught in the west, most of today's scientific and technological innovations come from the west , I am not saying that the west is verything nor I agree with the slagon says " the west and the rest " western education is more advanced and creative . Ethics and morals are different issues to talk about .

well, at least we know where your knowledge comes from. it's good to see at least you're trying to educate yourself on the internet and from the movies. but when it's not backed by firsthand experience, you can't be too sure how much of what you've read or saw on tv is true.

american education was at its best for at least several decades. it is currently in decline and no longer any good, and it has been this way for many years already....but when it was at its best and many people went through it, it was UNMATCHED.  i know what i'm talking about to be true, but you use what you've been reading to argue with me. when can we say chinese education was ever good? sorry the answer is never, as far back as we can remember. many chinese have been successful but that was in spite of any formal education received and even in lack of formal education.

for a time american education was about helping others. this is absolutely true. it was a very good system, teaching people to be good. they teach you that you can make a difference in the world and help others, even though you are just one person. they teach you to be honest, too, and to treat others as you want to be treated.  i can't say it is still true today, i doubt it is still true today. american education has been in decline for quite some time now. some of us were lucky enough to catch the tail of the american dream.

Your comment is quite interesting. American education was based on helping others and now in decline. Could you please clarify your view further?  What is wrong with American education today ? Political reasons ? Nationalism ? Lobbyists? Religious agendas?

you dont know what youre talking about.  youre paid to read from a script. chinese education was good from 66-67. UNMATCHED. people were educated to serve the people, and better society as a whole, not individuals...something that the west has never been known to do.... ever. like i said, even when westerners set up "charities", they do it to pocket 90% of the money

i can deny that western education is good for the outcome we see. creative and intelligent people are drawn to the west for its money, money obtained through questionable means. no one can prove that these people became creative as a result of the western education system, or that these creative and intelligent people wouldnt have been creative or intelligent had they stayed in their home country. people who are given visas to the west usually have to show some signs of intelligence. people who are highly creative also have a higher chance of given a visa, although if your creativity is unrestrained, youll probably get denied for not being conforming enough. so you have people already creative and intelligent to begin with. i frequently hear people saying people who go to college make more money, but did they really make more money because they went to college? people who can afford to go to college usually have money to begin with, so to say they made more money because of college is a wrong assumption. likewise, people who are smart will be smart with or without college. even if Deng Jiaxian never went to college, he'd still be smart. even if you sit me in harvard, or oxford for 4yrs, i really doubt it would make me anymore intelligent or creative. ive listened to alot of these phds coming out of ivy leagues and oxbridge, and these guys sound so pathetically uncreative, and rigid. they sound like smile, like theyre reading off a script, like a broken record, because theyve been through so much conditioning. theyve had to accept what they read in books, or in smile's case, his manuals. they cant have a mind of their own, because their profesors, advisors, and comanders already dictate to them what sources, and websites are acceptable or unacceptable in their disertation, or psyops, therefore, the information they have exposure to is limited from the very begining. sorry, but any fool can read off a script. being a parot doesnt make you intelligent or creative.  i havent noticed westerners to be that creative. what are you basing your statement on that "the most creative people are educated in the west" there might be a really creative guy in the middle of africa. you just dont know about him, or hear about him because "google finds him irrelevant". this does not mean he isnt incredibly creative. you probably see more creativity in china than the west. any chinese (including taiwanese) who go to the west can see this. the west operates by very strict rules and has very little flexibility in the way they see things, and do things. in fact, ive heard from many taiwanese who encountered a lack of flexibility in the west. by doing things in such a rigid way, the west kills alot of creativity. anyone who works for big corporations in the west will know what im talking about. everything is about copyrights, and western capitalist greed actually destroys creativity because all the bourgeosie are so worried others will profit off their idea, so things never go anywhere. yesterdays scientific and technilogical innovations came from the ussr. in fact, some can argue that the ussr was more technilogically advanced than the west. steve jobs was one step away from going to the ussr, but still i dont consider him to be creative. everyones all praising things that are nothing special. i really dont see any advantage that apple has to huawei, for example. ever since the iphone came out, i thought it was lacking. no memory card, non removable battery. 1 sim card. and you cant even get the sim card out without a pin. what a stupid idea. if there are so many creative and intelligent people in america, why cant they get the cell phone right.
and even if you were right in claiming that the west is home to the most intelligent and creative, what good does that do? you probably have more scientists and doctors preventing a cure to cancer than ones who are trying to cure cancer. the capitalist greed has pushed all these creative and intelligent to do evil things like preventing cures in order to allow more money to be made by the pharmaceuticals. you also have doctors prescribing meds that you dont even need. if western medical schools are telling doctors to prescribe meds that will do more harm than good, then its a failed system.
the ussr, and many comunist countries outdid western capitalist regimes for decades in the olympics and sports, despite western capitalist athletes being doped up. why dont i see any shils praising the ussr education system?
in conclusion, the idea that western education is superior is just pure bolocks. im not going to sit here and bs anyone. i have nothing to gain from lying to people and duping them into thinking western education is fantastic. in fact, what ive seen is the exact opposite. ive noticed that the most talented students in the west are actually foreigners, and not westerners. the number of top foreign students (particularly phd) in the west is disproportionately high. this means that foreignn students in the west, outperform local western students. aint that sad? foreigners are outperforming westerners on their own soil. i guess the western education system failed the westerners themselves. so if some fool happens to beleive that the western education is so great, then what the heck was the western education system teaching students from 1st grade through 12th? many of the top engineers in the west are actually foreign educated. so whats the matter? i thought western education was superior. so why is the west bringing in foreign engineers and scientists from the 3rd world? go to the silicon valley and take a look around and see how disproportionately high the number of asian engineers are. either western schools are inferior, or indian schools are superior. which is it? there is simply no way that western corporations are going to bend over backwards to hire foreigners and apply for visas if western employees were smart, and creative enough to fill the job. the only way theyre going to go out of their way to apply for visas for foreign employees is if the foreigner outperforms the westerner by a significant margin. on the other hand, if you look at the chinese universities, you will never see foreigners outperform local students. ive seen people coming from little countries like kazakstan keep up with the pace much better than westerners. if the western education system was really making people intelligent, then westerners should easily be able to go to china, or iran and outperform local students, but ive never seen that happen. from my own experience, the smartest and most creative people are coming out of countries like china, indian subcontinent, and russia. there are some creative and smart westerners here and there, but they pale in comparison, especially after figuring in the differences in budgets

go to some towns in middle america, britain, canada, australia, and youll notice that 70% of the doctors are foreign, particularly from 3 world countries, while 99% of the local population is native born. why cant the west produce enough doctors if the education system is so good?

the west educates people with all this mumbo jumbo. the roots of western education was linked or tied to religion. religion itself is dogma. and chairman mao said. you cant move forward while being dogmatic. shils claim that the west teaches you to think for yourself, but how can you think for yourself if you believe in something without any proof? like god, heaven and hel. youre teaching people to believe things as fact without any evidence. this reminds me of when america claimed they merked laden in pakistan, threw his body in the ocean. and that was the end of it. no picutres, no videos. in this day and age, everyones got a cell phone with cameras, yet no footage was captured. they claim that would ofend the terorists, yet the western oligarks had no problem releasing those discusting photos from abu graib with pictures of us troops sodomizing suspects. thats the kind of dogma youre dealing with in the west, and i guarantee you, the more educated the western is, the more they will accept this laden fairy tale. you look at the history of some western countries like canada, usa, australia, nz, and they send aborigines/natives into schools and brainwash them with useless information used to neutralize them. in most cases, religion was the main subject, and literature was only complimentary of the christian brain washing. dogma was the main thing in western education then, and it remains that way now.
