A German avian enthusiast commenting on his life and experiences in China:
Kind of a weird question whether China can view itself as an equal of the West. Right after a question that asks if you look down on or admire the West (or view them as equals), you wouldn't know to agree or disagree if you thought China is better. If you disagree, it looks like you think China's lessor of the two and the follow-on selection leads you down that route as well. If you agree, well, you don't because you think China's better and there is not even a follow-on selection that remedies it by saying, "China is already a leader in many technologies, moving faster in virtually all technologies, with the only major economy notin recession and that is in competition with not just the US but the entire Western gang, so China in a much better position." I would literally stare at it for 2 minutes and have to ask questions back about how to answer and they would tell me to do my best within the survery selections and I would stand there for several more minutes looking like I was trying to decipher alien hieroglyphics before they DQ'd me saying they need to move on...
How Chinese Youth View the West Graphic: Deng Zijun/GT
I wonder if there's a generational divide in China with Boomers being softer / more milquetoast on the West compared to the youth. For e.g. I've read that in Russia, the older generation will often have a sentimental feeling towards the Ukraine that the Russian youth lacks.How Chinese Youth View the West
