,I do not think this is a problem. Everyone has their own ways of life, so everything they have done has their own reason. this is their right, we can not interfere with them.

Maybe the trade guideline is the best way

Why the prostitution is rampant in most of China’s hotels and many other places although it’s illegal , it’s not due to the unemployment or the hotel’s benefit and so on ,it’s just because there’re lot’s people need this kind of service and the China’s government agree tacitly .
It can’t be disappeared unless all over the world’s males lose this kind of instinct.

prostitution seems to be glorified and embraced in China. The notion and mentality regarding prostitutes in the west usually depicts street walker/drug addict/servicing-in-the-inner/bad part of the city. That is the prime reason why most women would not choose to ever take this path (unless last resort in most cases). However, with China nowadays many prostitutes tends to be very comfortable with their job not to mention how nice hotels and KTV brothels accomodate to both the prostitute and customers. As sex related topics become more open and less taboo in neo-China. I really don't think many of these prostitutes will even feel shameful taking this job. I mean damn, for a person who is dictated by capital or money...that surely beats the hell out of working at a factory for a measly 600 rmb a month. The blunt truth is, as long as there is a demand (in this case human nature, instinct and natural libido) this profession will never diminish.

We should stop beating this 'dead horse' now.

What should we do with adolescent?

All arguments sound reasonable.
    It's time for the government to creat new methods to deal with the problem.
    My  chief worry is the  bad environment in which the adolescent are growing up.

    I  experienced a matter some times ago.  A boy of only twenty years old of the hotel  l  worked for paid to have sex with a prostitute someday.As a severe result ,he       was fired.     Most of us considered there was something wrong with his morality.

Dear Liangzai - Could you eleborate more on the religious elements as could not figure out. Thxs

"Neo-Confucianism, or 理学, is a bad idea because it is partly derived from buddhism and daoism (理学 = 儒家 + 道 + 佛), i.e. has religious elements that are not suited for a modern world"
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

It's rather difficult to mix in a batch of traditional morality while trying to keep pace with 'the modern times' *its like wearing a traditional uniform and holding a Mp3 player*. I agree with Liangzai whole-heartedly in regards to that. The advancement of a country is all about compromising with societies needs in it's current state.

Yes. I have noted that the Chinese themselves don't usually have this division into Confucianism and Neo-Confucianism, but it is rather apparent if you study the history.

I will just briefly reference Wikipedia here, at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-Confucianism :

Neo-Confucianism (理学 Pinyin: Lǐxué) is a term for a form of Confucianism that was primarily developed during the Song dynasty, but which can be traced back to Han Yu and Li Ao in the Tang dynasty. The term should not be mistaken for New Confucianism which is an effort to apply Confucianism to the 21st century.

Neo-Confucianism was a response by the Confucians to the dominance of the Taoists and Buddhists. Neo-Confucians such as Zhu Xi recognized that the Confucian system of the time did not include a thoroughgoing metaphysical system and so devised one. There were many competing views within the Neo-Confucian community, but overall, a system emerged that resembled both Buddhist and Daoist thought of the time and some of the ideas expressed in the Book of Changes (I Ching) as well as other yin yang theories associated with the Taiji symbol (Taijitu). A well known Neo-Confucian motif is paintings of Confucius, Buddha, and Lao Tzu all drinking out of the same vinegar jar, paintings associated with the slogan "The three teachings are one!"


The reason for all this is that Confucianism declined after the fall of Han, whereas Daoism and Buddhism replaced Confucianism. Much later, in the Song dynasty, the incorporation of Daoist and Buddhist stuff into Confucianism was just a way to make it more legitimate, a kind of reformation to revive what was long considered marginal or even dead. Thus Neo-Confucianism is a compromise; it is not the "pure" teachings from the past.
