True... at a point of time in ancient history, Chinese civilization is the greatest in the world. But by just living in the past, you will not improve yourself.
The Chinese do have great invention and innovations even now... and they are reaching first world in term of technology (namely hardware). What they really need now is to improve other aspects... one of them being moral. I am so looking forward to a day, when the Chinese could reach their height again... But I am not holding my breath waiting
