When America was rich, or when England and the Europeans were rich, it was like a matter of fact. The world just looked on, maybe a bit envious, but wanted to be rich like them. The world even forgot how the Western empires became rich, literally over their dead bodies, through conquest and looting, but they called it colonisation. This sounded much more pleasant as if colonising other countries to get rich, stripping away their resources and human rights and rights to ownership of their land, were a natural, normal and acceptable thing.
Now China is getting rich, by sheer hardwork, working for lesser pay, stinging and savings, no killings, no looting, no colonising, just plain hardwork.
Now watch this video and observe the expression and sense the mood and the words used to describe China's economic growth. I am wondering if it is amusing or what?
