In China, ‘Once the Villages Are Gone, the Culture Is Gone’


Stashed in: China!, History!, Awesome, China, History

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Chinese villages are going extinct at a rate of 300 PER DAY. The multitudinous culture of the countryside is quickly dying off in favor of the urban grind.

300 villages gone per day is 10,000 villages gone per year. 

That's a lot of villages being absorbed into the cities.

I see the point of the article: identity is crushed by urbanization, which homogenizes culture. 

It is not just urbanization.  It is a systematic violent destruction of culture and ethnicity. Anyone that protests is tortured and or killed. 

A crime against humanity. 

And yet, the world chooses not to get involved.

And yet, capital and private equity are rushing into China from around the world....
