"Ruined generation in the west"

Ruined how exactly?

Things are way worse in China than they could ever be in the west. And the internet is not the reason. Chinese people hardly have internet. The little they have is censored and restricted to hell and back.

The more I read about Chinese culture, the more it feels like it's just a culture of children. Untamed children.
I finished the book "Tai-Pan" a few days ago, and even then, the Chinese characters just all seemed like kids who never learned any better. People say that our generation never grew up, but China is suffering from the consequences of hundreds of years of people who never understood responsibility, teamwork, or generosity. It's entirely surreal.

Not sure if Chinese culture would even be worth saving. And by the way, restricting kids' internet access is not saving anything.

I have been to China, I don't read about them from a book.

this generation in the west are just full of drama queens who hate their own nations.

Children nowadays don't need to be "saved". I love it when people complain about the younger generations being ruined, because they are no different to the countless older people before them who have complained about youth destroying their culture. And yet...the human race still continues to thrive. This new generation isn't any worse than the countless generations before it.

Just take a look at these quoted from hundreds of years ago:

“[Young people] are high-minded because they have not yet been humbled by life, nor have they experienced the force of circumstances. They think they know everything, and are always quite sure about it.” - Aristotle (4th century B.C.)

"I find by sad Experience how the Towns and Streets are filled with lewd wicked Children, and many Children as they have played about the Streets have been heard to curse and swear and call one another Nick-names, and it would grieve ones Heart to hear what bawdy and filthy Communications proceeds from the Mouths of such.” - Robert Russel (1695)

“The free access which many young people have to romances, novels, and plays has poisoned the mind and corrupted the morals of many a promising youth…” - Reverend Enos Hitchcock (1790)

Children aren't being "ruined". You're just getting old.

every one is quoting from a book and not real life experience, this is kind of my point.

you can't google life.

Thats a nonarguement regardless

@NewMonday: Those are quotes from real people on life you fool. And you can google about life, because people always write about life.

The previous generation didn't invent planking and words like "yeet" though. :)

Nor were we nurtured to be overly sensitive and offended by anything and everything.

China is the number 1 executor of policital dissidents in the world surpassing Saudi Arabia. Alot of their censorship tools are being shipped over here through CA. The ignorance of some people is disturbing.
