Most of the students I teach are Chinese, and it's quite interesting
seeing what their views are.
They tell me that Social Democracy is now what China aims to be.
When I asked them all what their future plans are, most told me about
what further study they want to do, but one mentioned what he wanted to
do after study - become a successful businessman.
I asked them was this considered a good thing for people in China to
strive to be and they told me yes, it was.
They told me that Mao is still held up as a hero, but the mixed economy
is the way the country is moving forward. They pretty much all seem to
be enthusiasts for the market.
From stuff I've said about Bush and Iraq, I get the impression they are
also quite hostile to US foreign policy. Also, they're all atheists,
apart from one young woman who, she enthusiastically told me, has been
converted to Christianity and was baptised last year.
