Hello,


Yes, I have a question.

I have read that in modern China, some young people no longer show respect to their elders.

When you are on a bus or on a subway train, do most young people still offer their seats to older people?


Thank you,


James

Well it depends. I live in Hong Kong and maybe foreigners have better manners then 'we' do, I don't know. Some of the young people in Hong Kong offer seats to needy, but I am afraid, not many. You often see young people pretend sleeping and play no attention to their circumstances. I have a feeling that family education has a lot to do it.

Hong Kong and Mainland China are very different and have evolved from different histories.

One example is that the so-called One Child Policy in mainland China has resulted in what is called "The Little Emperor" syndrome. One unfortunate result of this is that it is often adults who stand up for children!

One can board public transport in a plaster cast and bowed under the weight of parcels and packages but if you even look disapprovingly at the loutish youth who has slipped into the seat even as you are trying to lower yourself into it, everyone else in the vehicle will look at YOU disapprovingly. Adult women will often offer a seat to someone who seems to need it.

Adult males? Well, only on the rare days when hell freezes over.

Great analyses, I even read it as an article. You know lots of Chinese politics and culture. Whistle

I always insist it is a trifle according to the degree of education. You know there are almost 1.4 billion people in this country and much fewer universities over it. The educational level of people different from each other obviously. For example, you can see "Mr. suited up" offering his seat to older people, younger people or pregrant people while middle-aged "Mrs. Illicated" spitting out of the window disapprovingly. Dancing

Although ,back to the theoretics, suited up is not the symbol of well-educated at all, I am only clearifying moroal is affected by lots aspects and there are 7 billion people with various ideology all over the world. People cannot be all kind or all bad this world, Neither do Chinese.

Glad to meet ya, bro.

Thank you, everyone, for the interesting replies.

I asked that question because I have read that the Chinese government is so concerned about the lack of "traditionally good manners" that it is even encouraging the study of Confucian ethics.


Maybe the Chinese should start bowing more again. That might remind people to be more courteous.

Individually different, you konw, different people has different views toward the same thing. In my opinion, I like US cultures, US politicians and Americans. You know this, with the development of consciousness, we chinese know the world better and deeper, we are not emerged in goverment's opinion. We started to find the special way to analyse the foreign imformations.
In conclusion, as a chinese, I like the US style, even more, I am attracted toward it.

I was sitting on a bus going through the Hong Kong New Territories one hot, humid day. All the bus windows were open, as normal on such a day. The Chinese man in front of me turned and spat a great gob out of the window. The wind blew it back through my window on to my face and neck. I remember clearly that he was a 'suited' gentleman of middle-age, educated well enough to apologise in good English.
