I often speak of how impressed I am with how well the Chinese have done in their post-communist, capitalist era. However, I have discovered something disturbing about people in Sydney that is an extension of what I already knew, but I did not realise the depth of it.
These people are monopolar. They cannot think that two things are good at once. So you must be one or the other. I think it is a problem of monotheists suffer from. So if I say that I think China is good. They think that I am also saying Australia is bad. Of course this is not true. It is just a stupid assumption. Their slice of sides is totoally incorrect and tragic. But that is probably for another post.
