466. China's Cultural Impact on the World Stopped at the Water Edge?
In his article, Looking at China's past to understand its future, Mr. Cliff Stearns, the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 6th Congressional District from 1989 to 2013, and President of the United States Association of Former Members of Congress, pointed out that China's cultural impact on other countries often stopped at the water edge. No doubt, Cliff hasn't read Dr. Dave Wang's papers on Chinese cultural influence on colonial North America and the founders efforts to borrow from Chinese culture in their efforts to build a new country in North America. In deed, from the Great Wall to Confucius, the founders used many positive Chinese culture elements to help with their endeavor to lead Americans to start an uncharted journey in North America. From the image you can tell the speech, Dr. Dave Wang made in Japan in 2010.
