China's unhealthy obsession with excellence
#1 Jan 22, 2013
Considering the structure of the Chinese language and that each character is a word I can understand the need to study. Pollution in Beijing is nothing new. The constant wind blows loess into the city. You have to remember that the "final exam" to enter the civil service goes back well over 1,000 years. The physical part of the examination is, literally, going to be a killer as more Chinese adapt to a western diet and sedentary "life style". To paraphrase Frank Morgan "Poor kid I hope she makes it".

Your post is full of misinformation. Standard Chinese has been simplified. Complex Chinese characters are made up of a combination of simpler characters and meanings. Pollution in Beijing is worsening. The requirements to enter the civil service are much different since the Revolution than they were 1000 years ago. I see little evidence that China is adapting to a western diet. China's unhealthy obsession with excellence means they are outpacing the United States in education.
