162. Dr. Wang Made his Speech at Valparaiso University
On November 6, 2009, Dr. Wang delivered his speech at Valparaiso University. In his speech Dr. Wang answered the question,what made it possible for the founding fathers’ borrowing from the Chinese culture? He gave out three reasons; first of all, the founding fathers were free. They didn't have ideology or politically correct in their mind. They did not worry about that someone would label them Socialists, or even Communists. There was no Red Scare. The Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy (1908-1957), wasn't born yet. The second one was that they could find what they wanted from Chinese culture. The third reason was that Chinese culture was available in North America. Americans could learn all manner of subjects from agriculture, science, philosophy, art and technology from books on China produced in Europe.
