Neher wk 2, Ruth (1 day late – vacation) In this section, I am choosing China to do my research of the cultural dimensions. Individualism and Collectivism in China are not even considered. Individualism is about ones self and doing what needs to be done for yourself not others, based on independence. Collectivism is based on group goals rather than individual goals. Chinese tradition is opposed to individual glorification and considers anyone who desires personal enhancement as a threat to collectivism (Pye, 1982).
Technology, knowledge, politics and many more ideas were all becoming influences of the west. China was in a crisis. In order for China to emerge from this, had to observe their level of national power, discover the problem and progress as a whole (Chen). Chen Duxiu’s call for nationalism explained the negative connotations that imperialism had on their country. In his eyes, the lack of nationalism was a result of the conflicting ideas of the old and the new.
In a socialist economy, all business properties are state owned. The focus of a socialist economy is to maximize social welfare instead of profit. Scholars theorize that socialism developed from capitalism. It rose to prominence to improve the flaws found in a capitalist economic system. Socialism provides a direct line between citizens and goods.
When the modern capitalist society has emerged, capitalism has massively impacted on many social aspects. The system had led to the dissolution and to an end of the Feudal system during the Middle Ages. There are many political thoughts, which consisted of significant frameworks for reforming and making some new changes to the society. This essay will mainly focus on two main political ideologies and identify the differences between these two houses, which are Marx and Mussolini. First, the German thinker, Marx, and a letter called “ Manifesto of the Communist Party”, bring about the concept of communism that was being used in many areas back in the olden days.
Although there has been countless time that China’s government ruled over the religion, and now there is hope that id does not need to be that same way again because it was different back then. For the flow of the world to work, it had to be balanced and the traditional Chinese religion focused their beliefs on yin and yang to bring that about. The “good” and “evil” is what yin and yang is about, however, the correct way is when things are working together is what brings balance, and that is why it is a common misconception for yin and
The status of Chinese women in the workplace The communist party has attempted to liberate the workforce, they promoting women work and equality between men and women. In the last decade, the government proposed the goal of building a “Harmonious Society”, following with a series of social security system projects and various welfare programs. Those policies have greatly contributed to the reduction of social inequality. According to The Economist (2011), in 2010, Chinese women labour- force participation rate is almost 70%, which is the first in the world. Women not only in China but also all over the world have made huge progress in the workplace.
In fact, the Chinese population continues to grow steadily and this could change the social and cultural trends. Another important point is the education; in fact China emphasize on the literacy rate that in China was over 90% (huebler.blogspot.ch, 2008). China is known to be a country where the population prefers to receive implicit messages and not to make any idea. For those wishing to open a business in China, the key to success is the relationship with the private relationships with various stakeholders. Another problem in China is corruption.
The Communists intend to promote this revolution, and the parties and organizations that move to promote history to its natural end. They argue that the elimination of social classes does not come about through reforms or changes in government. Rather, a revolution is necessary. The Communist Manifesto consists of four sections. The first section discusses the communist theory of history and the relationship between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie.
1. To what extent was China’s international behavior in the last decade (2005-2014) demonstrating the resurrection of Tianxia worldview proposed by Zhao Tingyang? Support your arguments with concrete examples. Some Chinese scholars regarded that the existing international relations theory is more in favour with the western world and incompatible in explaining Chinese context. Therefore, they try to seek “Chinese School” which could give a better explanation on Chinese actions.
For instance, rice occupies an important position in the Chinese cul-ture, which is now internationally traded and sold by other countries in the world. Furthermore, globalization gave rise to many different languages such as English that were not used in China. In addition, Internet connections have reached most parts of China even rural areas, which has allowed the Chinese people to extend their knowledge and learn about new cultures in distinct countries. Chinese people are now connected to the whole world via the
