This is a really interesting (and lengthy) video look at the recent history of China and the evolution that is taking place throughout every aspect of Chinese culture. The perspective is uniquely Chinese – culturally proud, aspirational, and full of hope for what the future holds.
From the outside, it is easy to see areas where China could improve. From the inside, it’s impossible to overlook the evolution that has taken place since the 1990s. It’s important to keep both perspectives in mind, as both are correct.
The video accurately relates the perspective we found during our trip last fall. It recognizes that more work can and should be done to evolve the freedoms and opportunities for China’s people, while maintaining the cultural hallmarks that are so uniquely Chinese.
