China Today

China today; China yesterday. A moral philosophy of China's national aspiration that has sustained her all through the past period of almost thirty odd centuries. A statement from one of the classics of China that summarizes the whole moral teaching of Chinese philosophy of life, either life of individuals or life of nations. An upright heart; there a life begins. The quality of "Chih Kuo," which means a disciplined nation. Elements of the Tang Dynasty. Japan's borrowing of Chinese culture. Facing the Mongolians about 600 years ago. The Yuan Dynasty. The Ming Dynasty. The Ching Dynasty, or the Manchurian Dynasty. The beginning of a new regime some 25 years ago, the Republic of China. Elements of the new Republic. The five races of the Chinese: the Manchurians, the Mongolians, the Mahommedans and the Tibetans, and the Chinese. Practical problems for an old Chinese philosophy. A miniature of the whole situation of the present world in China. A China where it seems that human beings are willing to give up all that makes for the first quality of Chinese philosophy, an upright heart, and then to give up what is most essential for any living at all, an honest mind. Some unique situation in China today. China's relation to her nearest neighbour. The third invasion by Japan. International concern over China. The speaker's plea that both China and Japan should be saved.
