How could China ever become the best in the world, if the people doesn't have the freedom of their mind ?
China will be the biggest economy in few years. By 2050, China's economy will be twice the size of the U.S.. China will the no doubt the economic and political dominant of the coming years. China produces half a million engineers every year, very high skilled engineers and workers, specialist at the highest level. But there's a huge difference between knowing how to solve a math problem and creating a a math problem. The Chinese people are like a machines, they learn and memorize complicated subject, and then become good engineers. But creating a new thing, takes very very big innovative skills. How could the Chinese people have a creative way of thinking, if they don't have a free mind ? They are being censored, the internet is being censored, they are not allowed to express them selves and therefore do not have the mind freedom that is so important for the creativity. If china keep this trend, it will forever depend on the western technology and innovative people, wouldn't it. I don't think its possible to deal with this problem without allowing people to think and do what they want to do. But that would be unacceptable as it will mean to stop censoring the internet.. So what do you think ?
