We all know that the Jewish nation is very special. Like Chinese, it is also a nation with a long history.
The Jews also suffered a lot. Their country was destroyed at the time of Chinese Spring and Autumn period, and since then they had been running for lives and going rambling over the world. They were exterminated and massacred more than 30 times throughout the history, but were never wiped out, and eventually, after 2,534 years of extinction, their country was restored and was re-established as the Jewish people’s own state, which is Israel. The Israelites are amazing and very intelligent. Although they were wandering around, their achievements were remarkable. Their total population is 16 million, which is less than 0.26% of the world’s population, but 170 of them have won the Nobel Prize, more than a quarter of the world’s Nobel laureates, and has nurtured many well-known people.
In 1996, a famous Magazine in the United States made an intelligence assessment and the result showed that the most intelligent people were Jews and East Asian Chinese; and both of them were sort of tied. However, in terms of IQ only, the Chinese were way better than the Jews, and this was the conclusion people came to in the West. But what is the reason that we Chinese have achieved so much less than the Jews? One of the great characteristics of Jewish education is that although they were hunted down and killed all over the world and wandered around for more than 2,500 years, they never abandoned their own traditional culture. It is really quite remarkable. They have never been assimilated, nor have they accepted assimilation because they kept their own traditional culture, and that’s why they could survive. Even if they were wiped out and only one or two were left, they still could make a quick comeback.
We have been far away from our ancestors and we can no longer find our roots, which is the fundamental reason why we lag behind. We Chinese used to talk about two kinds of inheritances; one is the system of teachings in deeds, which is family education, how can children know what to do? It’s very simple, children are the mimics who follow and copy what their parents do. Look at the picture below.
If mom knocks grandma’s back, kid will learn to knock her back like this. If mom is mean to grandma, kid will learn later that he will be mean to his mom as well. This is teachings in deeds, which is more important than teachings in words. Children do not understand sermons or big truths, but they can see and imitate. Imitation is how children learn and is the inheritance passed down through generations. However, if we do not reason with children, they will not understand and accept in their hearts, so who will take this particular responsibility? Not the parents because they usually cannot get their children to listen to reason, and it should be done by the teachers; this is teachings in words. Therefore, deeds and words should work together, teachers are dedicated to reasoning and parents are dedicated to modeling. When deeds and words are combined and kept in consistency, the talents will be naturally cultivated.
Since the Chinese Communist Party’s usurpation, the system of teachings in words had been put to destruction. They initiated the Cultural Revolution and attempted to destroy the Four Olds, including Old Ideas, Old Culture, Old Habits and Old Customs, so the system of teachings in words was lost. In the mean time, teachings in deeds had also been distorted in evil practices, such as exposing and fighting each other as well as engaging in cults. The Chinese Communist Party is a cult of education, the nature is to destroy divinity and humanity, and stimulate people’s animality and devility. The largest system of teachings in words and deeds has been destroyed, so no talents could be cultivated since the CCP’s entire education system is completely illogical, which enslaves the population and forces people to follow the CCP only. The most evil part of the CCP is to cultivate minions to have party spirit only and turn off their human side, so the Chinese people are now completely lost.
