Guess who recently has had the torch of space exploration technology passed on to them from the U.S. and Russia?

If you guessed China you are correct.
China?  Ancient land of "great walls", Confucius, Mao Tse-tung?  3,000-year-old-plus country seemingly eternally stuck in 3rd-world mode?

Yep, THAT China!
They've recently landed an unmanned spaceship on the surface of the moon.  And they're planning MORE spaceflights in the near future.  Possibly manned ones as well.

And if that isn't inflating the self-esteem level of the general populace...  ...sort of reminiscent of how the general populace of the U.S. was back in the 1960s.
The modern-day Chinese are thinking along the line of progress; innovation; scientific, technological and cultural advancement.  They're a proud lot these days.

And where is the United States in all this?  Shooting up meth and shooting up schools and shopping centers and workplaces.
Playing video games and playing with fancy microgadgets.  And playing race and gender cards and playing each other.  And playing sick social status games.

Chinese children are learning advanced math and physics, but what are American children doing?
Texting in class, massacring fellow students, prostituting themselves online.
And the teachers aren't much better.  A bunch of emotionally-stunted overage teenagers who view their pupils as potential temporary makeshift "lovers".  Permanently stuck in "atrophy" mode since childhood or adolescence.
American schools are no longer institutions of learning or instruction.  They've been reduced to real-life soap operas and crime dramas.

China has what the U.S. used to possess some 50 years ago:  national self-esteem, faith in oneself and faith in its future.
The U.S. has pretty much lost all of its pride and dignity and is plunging into an abyss of 3rd-world rot.  Even its own leaders and prominent citizens refuse to invest in it anymore.  They're deserting their own country, often overtly.

Viva China!!!!  They'll be the ones to eventually colonize Mars in the near future.
