It's true that many brilliant minds contribute to the rise of America but let's be frank and admit that these great minds which came from the third world countries are provided by adavanced laboratories and appropriate research resources otherwise they would have ended up working as construction workers and shepherds if they remained in their home countries. There is no suporior human to another and what diffreniate them is opportunity !

> chinese education was good from 66-67

2 years? man, it's like your whole essay is a joke. what can 2 years do? it's not enough to see any results.

arabchinalover: They sugarcoat everything, huh !
who's they? me?

i sugarcoated nothing. the worst thing about american education at the time was how they forced you to be extroverted when you're naturally introverted. it was difficult, but today i'm actually thankful, because i'm not afraid to talk in front of a large audience....i didn't say everyone in america had the same experience, but i had that experience of heaven and so did many others.

you're too nice. lol.....i know i sound like i live in some dream world, you're not the first to say that. i limit the heavenly american experience only to elementary school though...also, they don't teach you math in the american system, so if you don't teach yourself that, you won't know math. ...anyway, i think all formal education sucks today, so you'd be better off teaching yourself. even back then when it was better than today, i think elementary school was enough, high school was such a waste of time, and everything after that as well........the good thing about china is....the asian type of freedom that you won't find in the west.....

your comment got me thinking. yeah, you're right. you know what's a good example of this? communism. ....i saw a youtube video the other day, putin was saying how he thought communism was good when it was first sold to the russians, but eventually he saw through to its evilness and so he doesn't support communism today.

china came out with atomic bombs in half the time it took for the europeans to make one. i guess western education is not as advanced as they would like. as much as people like to hype up the importance of western education. id like to point out that canada, australia, new zealand, and ALL of europe have been unable to come out with anything like baidu, beidou, fengxingwang, droid4x, taobao, unionpay, alipay, or weibo. guess all that western education aint doing them much good.

if you want to know who is creative, take a look at the food they make. you mean to tell me, with all these "advanced", and "creative" people, all you can come up with a piece of meat in between 2 pieces of bread?  any idiot can come up with sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers. these are some of the simplest, most uncreative kind of food that you can come up with. and the italians are eating something everyday that they jacked from the chinese. iif you look at the chinese foods, there are endless kinds of creations, that is unmatched and unparaleled.

you would be shocked to discover the truth, but i don't think you could accept it if it hit you in the head. you would be as disappointed in china as i am.

the stuff you spew makes no sense at all.  i believe in that same interview, he thought he believed in western democracy, and he saw through the sensationalism that swept the ussr in the late 80s. putin, and most other sane people believe that by following the west, russia fell into its weakened position today. no one, not even the most radical inperialist can say that russia is better off today than it was during the comunist era. in fact, most decent people believe that kruschevs pro western policies led to russias decay, and paved the way for the abys. russia's gdp fell by 60%, after ussr's collapse. russia's influence is nothing compared to what it used to be. capitalism didnt turn out too well for russia, neither did "dem0cracy"; all it was, was an empty dream. people like putin fell for the sham, and russians paid the ultimate price. what they shoulda done was stand up to the janis vagris', and maybe russia wouldnt be as weak as it is today

how convenient of you leaving out all the bullying, where getting beat up is part of the american school experience. dont matter if its elementary, or high school. even college has hazing. no college experience is complete without being tazed. you should check out that video of a floriday student getting tazed by the cops for asking kerry about skull and bones. v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjczNjIzNzA3Ng==.html?spm=a2hzp.8253869.0.0&from=y1.7-2
alot of american high schools even have metal detectors because people are just savagely stabbing and shooting people. alot of schools in the west look more like prisons than schools if you ask me. for a culture that supposedly has such high education standards, isnt it a little odd that many western students get beat up simply for being smart, and get targeted for being "nerds". many westerners had to downplay their intelligence to avoid getting beat up. everyone knows violence is out of control in the west. school shootings are like a regular event. you got people shooting up high schools, and shooting up colleges. you check out that ucsb shooting? how bout virgnia tech? now that looks a little more like reality to me. not this scripted dialogue coming out of smile's mouth. if you want to find out what a real western education is like, i dont think hearing it from shils is the right way

yeah china is doing great . they almost have all the alternatives but until today i can't see real innovaions . instead of Amazon china has taobao , instead of facebook  china has weibo and the list goes on and on . china almost have everything the west have but chinese eduction system still lacks creativity.

my point isnt that taobao is any better than ebay. my point is that europeans, canadians, australians, and kiwis cant even come up with a baidu, taobao, or weibo, even with their supposedly advanced technology. europeans, canadians, australians, and kiwis have NO alternative. thats why they use facebook, google, and ebay. you can have the best technology, but with incompetent leadership (like europe, canada, australia, and nz), they wont make any gains, and all they will be are henchmen, and never their own master.

you have made a great point , the chinese at least are doing better than the rest including the ones you have mentioned . however, even chinese people i got to know believe that their education system needs reform.

im sure there were soviets who believed they needed reform. look where that got them. reform can be a great thing (ie 1949), but can also end up disasterously.

i don't think there is nothing wrong about any educational reform . Do you really think that chinese education system is at its best now and that doesn't need any reforms ?
