By: Mr. Raymond Kenneth Petry Mon, 25 Jan 2010 07:24:50 +0000 It’s been interesting to watch China advance over the past 50 years (or say 38 since Nixon’s visit in ’72, or say ’73 and my first Chinese-made trinket, a plastic-noodle-frog I bought in Paris, France, before the USA market bloomed)…

But I still have the feeling they are not going to press their advancement beyond what USA citizens have: There’s still that feeling they’re a population-oriented-society while the western world moves toward college-oriented…

That’s quaint, because they’ll keep their Chinese Kanji;

But sad because they’ll struggle like slaves to sell the simpler things of life to the world, for getting rich…

It’s not that bad with modern factory equipment but it’s still like Days of Heaven, a worker’s life, instead of a thinker’s life…

I’ve long pondered what the Chinese culture knows of the archaic world: The older Sumer gods moved east after the flood wiped their first mankind-supporters off the map;- Maybe they too had a greco-esque millennium of the gods.

Just a few pastorale thoughts.
