It's surprising China doesn't have property tax considering Marxist views on private ownership of property. Economic reforms have embraced elements of capitalism, but it's still a bit surprising that there is no tax on property.

The OP is a Communist. The country most certainly is not.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Quite a heaven for capital in the real estate market right now.

So you see, things may be quite different from what you thought they would be.

RE: Ask a (GASP) CHINESE COMMUNIST ! ! !
I actually have quite a bit of burning questions about China at the moment, though I don't know how accurate your answers can actually be (no intention to discredit your character). So, I will continue to ask about several issues, or non-issues as the case may be.

How do you feel about the cultural warfare in the United States concerning atheism and Christianity. Do you think one side is justified in their argument, or do you think that neither is in the right? How do your country's people and your media portray the current infighting within the United States.

Also, how do you view the United States? As a liability? As a partner? As a competitor? What, exactly, do you think the U.S needs to reform to better suit your own ideal nation. What is the common opinion of the United States in China?

Junyuan, what are your thoughts about what we call Eastern Medicine? This would include practices such as acupuncture.

Granted that there has never been a Communist country.

The U.S. is a partner as well as a competitor to China. Many people in China love the U.S. and long for the opportunity to go to the U.S. or even getting a green card.

How the U.S. could suit my ideal nation? Do you mean how the U.S. could be perfect? Never thought of this before, but I agree with Clinton 'it's the economy'. Reduce the national debt, cut unnecessary military budgets and try more diplomatic solutions.

I think I understand a little but have to admit not recognizing how the 'cultural warfare' between atheism and Christianity because I don't have so much peer pressure and family pressure. Yet judging from the trouble the religious stuff has caused to me. I believe it's much harder for you guys in a Christianity culture to adopt atheism.

Eastern Medicine indeed work. If not, what could us Chinese do when we got sick before we know Western Medicine?

Eastern Medicine has its disadvantages. Its effect is slow and not as powerful. How it functions is not that clear as western medicine. Excessive heavy metal is also a problem. The Eastern Medicine is now reforming itself with fewer ingredients, clearly understood and repeatable mechanisms and standardized massive production. Artemisinin is a good example of such efforts.

In the vein of eastern medicine there is a tradition of eating or ingesting exotic animal parts (rhino horns, tiger) of currently endangered or nearly extinct species. Does your generation go in for it as much as say your parents or grandparents would? Just as a general trend increasing or decreasing or staying about the same?
