You mean you are a white American with a Chinese wife? Just being nosy. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I also have quite a bit of background on Eastern cultures and philosophy. Usually people think American culture is the worst because there is none. Immigrants are not really melting into a new culture but instead their cultures are stripped off. Here are a few problems. (I am gonna say American culture instead of the West since I admit I am not an expert with Western culture. 1. Americans don't take care of the elderly. People themselves don't but rely on the government instead. In the East you suppose to take care of your parents whenever they get old. They suppose to move into your house. 2. Strong individualism. 3. Instant gratification. 4. Every conflict is resolved in court. 5. Degenerating moral standard. 6. Low standard in education. There are problems with Eastern cultures too. People grew up are required to be more sophiscated and more fake which I don't like. The conservative attitude is very strong. If you study Chinese history, you will find out every single reform in China eventually failed because of the strong resistance from the conservatives, except those involved with blood.
