exactly. china actually protects its minority cultures far more than korea protects its own.
Lately, The Joseonjok community is starting to diminish in rapid number to the Communist Chinese. In Yanbian, Korean schools are closing. distorted Chinese history is confusing and brainwashing Korean people. They actually think that Manchuria was always a part of China. Korean culture in China is slowly eviscerating before our own eyes.
Regarding the Manchu's, there are only a HANDFULL of manchus that can actually speak the language anymore. Most Manchurians have dis-avowed their ethnic race to become Han Chinese. It's very sad for the Manchu ethnic group, they are basically non-existant.
there is a woeful lack of public spirit and patriotism (not nationalism) in east asia. everyone is concerned about his own selfish gains, and don't give a squat about the welfare of his country. the west understands this critical weakness.
In term of generalities, you are probably right. Pop culture, sports, Information control, multi-culturalism are all tools Western Factions implement, that are dividing Asian people within nations. Critical issues like financial autonomy, political power, technological innovation, cultural renaissance within the Asian continent, are null and void that Western factions control and restrict. Malaise, apathy, and narcissism have become consequential components to a degenerate, degraded race. Mostly the blame is on us, Koreans, Japanese, Chinese.
the simple solution to cultural degeneration would be, a Clean Diet, No TV, media or Internet, No entertainment industry to poison the minds of the youth.
