In response to Re Just some perspective (In the Know)

Collectivism ( working in a group , teamwork ) may be ok in a football team or ( possibly ) in a war but it has no place in any civil society.

Group thinking and "herd mentality" stifles creativity and skill and motivation.

Anyone who has lived in China knows this.

Individualism is why countries like the USA and even Australia and New Zealand with smaller populations have been so successful, even in the 60's and 70's. China in 2017 is similar in economic development and technology to the USA and Australia in the early 70's. It won't last though.

Collectivism and any Confucianism type principle have no place or value in any modern society.

FYI the only reason why the USA lost in Vietnam is because they did not go in hard enough and pussyfooted around.

They had the technology and weapons to flatten the commie bastards.

Some friends of mine who were in Vietnam told me that the place should have been saturation bombed from the beginning with endless waves of B 52 bombers and possibly with low yield tactical nuclear weapons in some cases. The communists would have been defeated quickly but Nixon thought this strategy was "cruel" so it was not adopted. It would have been less "cruel" to end the war quickly.

You are really showing your ignorance. Do proper research next time.
