What does it mean to be Chinese?

An American’s mixed feelings about China


I’ve lived in Asia four years and my feelings about China are unconventional and mixed.

The ethereal China dream


On my recent trip to China I kept thinking about Thomas Freidman’s article “China Needs Its Own Dream”. In it he discusses the fact our planet cannot sustain China following the American path of consumption simply for consumptions sake.

Censors in Beijing cut the latest Hollywood blockbuster, Men in Black 3, by 13 minutes to remove all Chinese baddies from the film.
