  9. China (And East Asia In General) Should Return To Its Cultural Roots

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to be "westernized", but honestly.....it's getting quite annoying now. It seems every culture in the world wants to be "westernized" (whatever that exactly means)....

    Kanji definitely. It is so annoying as well as difficult to learn a bunch of Chinese characters that I can just write using hiragana, one of the best writing systems! Katakana seems useless to me as...

    Interesting flag nurizeko!

    But I have to agree with gaijin. The flag is great and highly creative but it seems a bit too elaborate and uneven. Plus no other country has a map on their flag and it...

    So gs001 why do you at times apologize for your government? Not just on this forum but in general. The commies made things a lot worse. What do you think about the Nationalist Party of old?
