GrassThe differences between Eastern and Western cultures provoke ongoing debate. The English sit at random on patches of ornamental grass in parks and other public spaces. Urban areas in China are often very densely populated, so, to protect the environment, people are not allowed on lawns. The Chinese advocate collectivism and are accustomed to considering the impacts of their actions; they place the needs of society above their own. This contrasts with the English who seem to me a people with a casual attitude to authority, in fact to life in general. I make no comment on which is the better culture. I am simply sharing my own feelings on the Western world as I see it.
