Warding off the English invasion


A reader of China Daily recently wrote to voice his support for the preservation of Chinese culture after reading the article entitled "English invades Chinese language".

"We must not abandon our Chinese culture", the reader said. He had my agreement on this point of view. But I see "the invasion of English" in a different way.

When I say "invasion", I am not referring to the use of English words among Chinese characters, although some people do use abbreviations such as "CEO", "DVD" and "GDP". That is a relatively minor issue..


Although there is another type of invasion that we have to worry about! You just have to see the threads by Anglos on this forum to see how perverted they are. If we are not careful this can spread its poison everywhere.

Sky lanterns, also known as Kongming lantern, are very popular in Asia and gaining attention in the west.  This should be promoted as a cultural symbol that originated in China.

Chinese Clothing

Chinese clothing should not be symbolized only by the relatively modern and stereotypical qipao.  Fashion worn from the Shang to Ming Dynasties represents the true traditional form. The ancient aesthetics greatly influenced clothing and fashion trends of Japan and Korea up to the end of the Ming Dynasty.
For a taste of the Tang Dynasty, take a trip to Kyoto and Nara Japan where the ancient arts and culture of China are still preserved and practiced in its purity.
