Why do Chinese like to flaunt wealth, if not for face? That's what I mean, the root of your problems is your extreme need for face culture. You put any human being under his circumstances, they would most likely do the same. It's probably the stress of being poor for so long and being looked down on, that when such people become rich, they feel the need to flaunt it. Study psychology. It's not people that are bad, but it's because of suffering. It's a societal problem, rather than an individual problem. |
If you don't allow doctors to become rich, you won't attract the very best doctors. The ideal is that doctors love to heal and help others and would do it for free. But in this day and age, how many years of university study do you need to become a doctor? (That is if China is like other countries, I'm not sure about that) So it's not a job for the most talented healers, but only for the best academic students. This is your problem, your screening process. Your most talented healers probably didn't attend medical school and don't have a license to practice. So what capable person that invested a lot in education wants to be poorly paid in a society where money is so important for face? It's true for all fields. If you pay little, you get little. Under communism, you actually wanted something for nothing. But for nothing, you also got nothing. That's why Chinese society stagnated.
You need to treat people well, if you want them to contribute back to society from their heart. If people are treated poorly, then it's every man for himself. Everyone has to look after themselves to survive, who cares about the other fellow? Love sounds so cliche, but it is really the key to all your problems. Try to let your motive for whatever action be based on love.
So there is a societal problem, and it is only the exceptional individuals that can rise above it. We have created a poor model of society, and individuals mostly suffer living in it. Why does life need so much money? The best things in life are free, but why is it so expensive to stay alive nowadays? The society is out of control because people aren't happy even with money. Happy people aren't going to flaunt their wealth. Happy people aren't going to cheat, scam, and hurt others. You know that anyone that flaunts wealth feels empty inside, they are looking for validation from others.
It's a crazy consumerism society we live in. Who's going to be the next great world leader that says enough of this sh*t, and help create a whole new way of life.
In the end, whatever you do, people need to be happy to behave well. A happy doctor is not going to overcharge his patients. A happy doctor is not going to be greedy. But in the end, the medical profession is too restrictive nowadays...I really think that the most talented doctors don't have a license to practice, and therefore you don't know about them. Whatever happened to natural remedies that are mostly free. In the end, you can't save a life that is ready to go, anyway. And you can't kill anyone who is not ready to die. This is the most wondrous fact of life that most people have forgotten. So really if you know how to live, it's not expensive to stay healthy.
Chinese are so crazy about paying for expensive food as well. Last I saw some dried Chinese delicacy piece of food costing US$20,000. That small piece could probably only last one meal, for about 4 people.
Yeah, who's going to help turn this crazy world of ours around? It does start with love, though. I think the Chinese government does have the power to turn the world around. I wish it would take the lead, and change China back into the greatest country in the world, without so many people suffering needlessly. It should not be so expensive to live. It has been my dream that was shattered upon my arrival here. Though I would still love to see that. But first give hope and bring back the traditional characters, please.
