The biggest difference between Western and Eastern culture is the flexibility towards change and reform.东西方文化间最大的差别就是面对改变和改革的灵活性。

West was not always like the West that we know today. They have adapted to newer ways of life faster than Easterns while Easterns adapt to change slowly.西方并不一直是我们现在熟悉的样子,他们比东方人更快地适应新的生活方式,而东方人适应变化要慢一些。

Nationalism is lesser in Western culture. Today’s Westerns have almost nothing similar to the way their ancestors lived. Even compared to 1950s society today’s Western culture is much different. In East they will often bring up their ancestors and their way of lives and traditions which gets in the way of change.西方文化中不太强调民族主义,现今的西方人和祖先的生活方式大相径庭,甚至和20世纪50年代的社会相比,现在的西方文化都产生了很大变化。东方人总会提到祖先以及祖先的生活方式和传统,这就阻碍了变革。

Western culture is centered mostly around freedom. Freedom to do anything. Freedom to choose anything. Freedom to say anything. Because of that freedom people change the way they want and the society, tradition and lifestyle changes fast.西方文化主要围绕自由,做事、选择和言论的自由。因为有这种自由人们按照自己喜欢的方式做出改变,并且社会、传统和生活方式变化都很快。

Eastern culture is more conservative and controlling towards people’s actions and their lives, too many taboos, old traditional dogmas which tells them to live in a certain way other people see fit.东方文化更保守,控制着人们的行为和生活,禁忌太多,还有太多传统的教条告诫人们要以别人看来合适的方式生活。

Inequality in Eastern culture is higher, it could be based on gender or even age. In some Eastern culture being elder gives people special privileges and elders control everyone’s lives, they have a say on how everyone should live. An elder voice counts, young voices are not taken into account, another reason that hinders their social growth and change.东方文化中的不平等更严重,包括性别甚至年龄的不平等。在一些东方文化中,长者就有特权,长者控制着每个人的生活,他们有权指点别人该怎样生活。长者说的话有分量,年轻人就人微言轻,这也是阻碍社会发展和变革的另一原因。

Western culture has freedom to the point people THINK they can do whatever they want but it is not the case since I lived in the West for the past 15 years and these freedoms can become negative to the point that certain people can be granted so called privileges more so than others. Freedom doesn't exist anywhere. It is all privileges given to us by the elite of this world.西方文化中的自由到了人们“自以为”可以为所欲为的程度,但其实并非如此,因为过去的15年我一直生活在西方,这种自由的消极影响是有些人的确比他人拥有更多的所谓的特权。自由其实并不存在,只是社会中的精英赋予我们的所有特权而已。

Eastern culture is worse because there is literally less privilege unless you live in Japan or Israel and a few other nations but overall, too much dictatorship exist by religious retards, who want to control people to the point people not only hate the government but the very nation they reside in.东方文化不太好,因为除非你生活在日本或以色列以及少数几个国家,否则你的特权绝对会更少。总体来说,由于宗教影响有太多独裁者想控制人们,结果导致人们不仅讨厌政府,而且讨厌他们所在的国家。
