Posted on 10/28/2016 5:30:39 PM PDT by Olog-hai
China is the least generous country in the world, according to a worldwide survey on generosity by the Charities Aid Foundation.
The 2016 CAF World Giving Index is based on a poll of 1,000 respondents from 140 countries and regions, asking them if in the last month they helped a stranger, donated money to charity or volunteered their time.
China ranked 140th place in the poll, behind Palestine, Yemen, Greece and the Democratic Republic of Congo, lifestyle website Shanghaiist reports. [ ]
Myanmar tops the index for the third year running with a score of 70 percent, followed by the United States (61 percent) and Australia (60 percent).
The United Kingdom is the most generous country in Europe with a score of 54 percent, followed by Ireland (54 percent) and the Netherlands (52 percent).
Based on the B-1 visa Chinese people I’ve met, this doesn’t suprise me at all.
Hard as nails.
Where from, originally?
China is very likely to become a problem for America, in the future.
Too many have sent too much of what used to be important to this country, there.
The entire American manufacturing establishment is completely in China now.
Yet the country does not allow Americans to immigrate (unless they are Chinese in heritage) and the entire population is completely without a tendency to help anyone else.
This is a big, big problem developing.
In my opinion.
The motto of average Chinese is mine is mine and my family’s, yours is fair game if I can get away with it. So they are republicans when paying tax, but become democrats when receiving welfare
Lending a hand to others who are not related to you is an American characteristic. Theravada Buddhist populations constantly give food and money to the monks which their belief requires and the fact that all males spend time in the monasteries as a rite of passage into adulthood prompts that, too. That normalization of charity makes it easier to give to non-monk beggars and even to help out unrelated people. Throughout the rest of the world it is a Christian thing and among populations with a Christian foundation it is primarily and American thing. It is a big reason that Vietnamese love Americans. They remember the GIs during the war, even old Communists remember that the GIs were always ready to lend a hand. In Viet Nam that characteristic is not Vietnamese. You help out your relatives and the Church but not much else. The Viets have a lot of experience with Russian and Korean and European tourists, and espepcially with Australians and none of them have gained any reputation of generosity. In Sai Gon in a street crowded with foreign tourists, many of whom look indistinguishable from Americans, if someone gets bumped in traffic and is thrown to the street and someone steps off the sidewalk to check for injuries and help out, the Viets around about identify that person as an American by the fact that he stopped to help.
I’ve had Chinese too. I always miss her happy endings.

7 per country?
Who was the pollster, msnbc?
China has always been authoritarian rule, and the Communists made it tyrannical. In Marxist societies, EVERYTHING is political, and civll society is not allowed to exist outside of firm state control. Therefore, people have no connections to each other outside of the state. Add to that the materialist philosophy, and overall poverty and chaos Mao caused, and people become extremely cynical. You take care of your closest circle, and anything outside of it doesn’t matter.
But I don’t care about China - I care about the United States. Clinton, Obama, and their many Alinskyite fellow-travelers are doing the same here - anything the was once left to civil society and people’s free association is slowly being put under state and ideological control.
That’s the way it is homey. Men are dogs. We hunt and f...and never mind. I’ve had mexican, black, white, french etc. The Asian chick is still the most reliable. they rarely cheat on you unless you’re a scumbag..like me LOL.
