The difference and relationship between Eastern and Western Culture is illustrated in the chart below.
In all time and in all countries, there are basically four levels of ideology including divinity, humanity, animality and devility.
You can see from this chart, the left column demonstrates Traditional Chinese and the right column demonstrates Modern Western. In Modern Western, the divinity is about Judaism, Catholicism and Christianity; the humanity is about European Renaissance Thoughts and American founding philosophy; but there are also some trash including Social Darwinism, Satanism, Marxism, Leninism, Stalinism, Hitler’s Nazism and Mussolini’s Fascism.
In Traditional Chinese, the fist level is divinity that is about Buddhism, Primordial Book of Change, which is not Book of Zhouyi that has been distorted, and Primordial Taoism matching the Way of Universe, which is not the religious form of Taoism. The second level is humanity that is about Confucianism, which matches human nature, but it was soon tampered with, and the Confucianism we know today is pseudo-Confucianism. The third and fourth levels are animality and devility. Many people have opinions about traditional Chinese culture, but there are only two types of dross; one is Pseudo-Confucianism, which is the foundation of enslaving education; the other one is Shang Yang Ideology implied in the Book of Lord Shang, which is the foundation of all Chinese Tyrannical and Totalitarian Ideologies. So the Chinese Communist Party is a two-in-one regime, tyranny and cult combining the Eastern Devil and Western Demon throughout the history of human being without any matching competitors in China or elsewhere.
We are now at a crossroads in our history. In the new Era, China will bring together the best that has been done in our history and abroad; it will be a new China under the Rule of Law. But this is only a theory of human nature, which is also the case in the West; it is not enough. People’s minds need changing through not only the political system, but also the education of humanity. Matching the Way of the universe and matching human nature are dedicating to return humanity and awaken divinity. In this way, the Chinese nation will certainly get better.
China in the new Era will be a happy China! We will no longer pursue GDP and take the economic index as the standard of national governance and measurement; this is far from enough, because it is material and ostensible. We should pursue people’s happiness index that matches the Way of Universe and that is the combination of Goodness at all times and in all lands. To quote again our teacher’s words “All problems are ultimately human problems, and these problems are problems of minds. Therefore people´s minds can only be changed through the political system (the rule of law) and education (the education of humanity).” The rule of law is in place for the suppression and prevention of the evil of human behavior. Only education of humanity is able to remove the evil of people’s minds, and it is a way to learn traditional Chinese wisdom to work on the life of happiness. However, they are indispensable and mutually reinforcing. If rule of law and education of humanity will be established in China, one candle will dispel thousands of years of darkness and our Divine Land will be re-glorified.
