I think Chinese should do things the Chinese way ...

typical chinese characteritics
The 2010 World Expo in Shanghai has already been declared an official success. But, like perhaps any event of this scale, the six-month Expo has also been a ...
1. Fake disabled people. Visitors to the exhibits are discovering that
there is no better way to beat the long lines at popular pavilions than to fake a disability and move to a much shorter queue. From the unusual rise in wheelchair rentals alone, Expo organizers suspect that thousands of people are faking disabilities every day, according to a Shanghai Daily article. The park has fought back by requiring disabled people to show a government-issued ID proving their disability. Now, fake government IDs certifying a disability are on the rise.
[Red] - First, I see nothing wrong with 1. :)
I think the greatest mistake of Shanghai Expo, if any, and it will the mistake of the Chinese people and China's rise when it ceases to do things the Chinese way in China, and imitate or emulate the West. Theirs are mostly FLAWED AND FRAUDULENT, if not the INEFFICIENT AND INEFFECTIVE.
So, it's all up to you -- be an ineffectual Western ape or an efficient Chinese?
But I don't blame China or the Chinese for being TOO KEEN to imitate and emulate the West as I know how hard it is to resist their (West) demands, especially, their knack at aggression, accusing and labelling you with all kinds of disrepute and malice if you do not conform and let them "win".
That is why I had in an earlier thread questioned why the need for queuing to visit the Pavilions, when the Chinese should be allowed "free movement" instead of being "caged up" in those stupid queues. Of course, I do know the reasons for the queues. It all belies in the thing called "trust".
Besides, the Westerners also can't handle anything as mega as China or requires one to "think out of the box" as they have, by their religion, been conditioned like their pet dogs ordered to sit, stand and eat by their "Master".
So, don't criticise the smart Chinese. They did just right. :)
