Chinese police arrest woman for wearing a Japanese kimono during a photo shoot: “You are Chinese!”

This is an excellent example of ancient values, ancient beliefs still alive today. A fundamental principle of all Chinese political thinking is the central importance of the Chinese race. That value or belief comes from Sun Yat-sen, but is based on the historical ethnocentrism of Chinese civilization. My point is not to judge the cops in this video or the woman in the kimono but to alert readers to how common ancient beliefs are and how much they are affecting our world today. There are signs today that China is beginning to close itself off from the world, as it has done in the past. A deep core reason for this, if it is happening, will be the clash of its ancient values against the modern world. ABN
