Dambisa Moyo: Is China the new idol for emerging economies?
The people of Taiwan still does have a connection with China. I believe that taiwanese people do secretly want to be part of the chinese china state. However, only political ideologies stand in the way and prevent everything from happening. If someday this barrier will be broken down by friendly relations and mutual trust.. both countries will merge without a hitch.

Dambisa Moyo: Is China the new idol for emerging economies?
i do not agree with her views on how china does its thing in the world...it seems she sees things from the money point of view and not the complete personality of how China is. There are questions on how China is spending on countries like Africa, how China practices its business, how china is moving in the world political stage. However, im not going to deny the fact that China is a growing country, economically. The current leaders are probably not as exposed to the world arena as they have concentrated mostly on China itself. But, the country is producing highly educated people, educated in other countries and bringing home ideas I believe China needs to move forward. There will be changes.. and I see that china will soon evolve into an economic and political power with ideas that will help move the world forward. Growing countries always encounter rough roads.. Lets hope china will develop into the model nation everyone envisions it to be.

Is it part of human nature to have a hierarchy?
Humans strive organization.. social creatures require organization. The ants, bees, termites organize themselves to work. Prehistoric humans organized themselves to hunt (imagine hunting in groups with no coordination between members). Modern human structures whether corporate or government or familial all strive to achieve a certain goal... organizational formation is inevitable. Hierarchy rules will always arise. As much as there is a queen bee/ant/termite who is the central focus of the colony, human organizational structures even when even more complicated than those of insects will always have nodes-leaders that will serve as central points. Deeper thinking makes you realize than even energy distribution among animals also exist: remember the web of life? grass - herbivores - carnivores-scavengers etc... Hierarchy is not part of human nature. It is a working engine of nature itself.

Why Do We Still Have Monarchy?
a Monarch has its purpose in the old days. They were the head of the social structure and organization that manages a large group of people or even a country. Things have changed now, but some societies prefer the existence of a monarch for nostalgic purposes and pride (even revenue as you mentioned it). This is a choice of the society that perfers to keep its monarch. Let us not question these societies because their social structure requires a monarch unless of course they decided to remove it completely as what happened in France and Nepal. Very few monarchs actually claim "noble blood"or superior blood etc..... these kings know that they are in a precarious state because they know the country can work without a king at the helm. Therefore these "kings" are trying to balance their power while getting the people's respect. Otherwise they are inviting a revolution to get rid of them.

What is high school about
my 2 cents: a school is a training ground for academics. It is where we learn facts, data, things we need to survive and navigate for a future vocation. a school is also a a place for learning basic social behavior. THAT future vocation that i was talking about earlier requires dealing with people, talking with people, working with people... the only way you can get students to learn how to do those things is in a school because there are lots of people to "deal" with, lots of "social rules" to navigate with.. You cannot teach certain things in a home because it involves family. NOT everyone in the world is "family" and therefore requires more delicate social maneuvering. You can only learn these things from dealing with "strangers" referring to classmates, "people of authority" referring to teachers, "people that are almost family" referring to friends, "people that have a common goal or desires " referring to school groups or organizations..etc.. A school therefore must make sure that the behavior that arises from such social maneuvering is FAIR and JUST. Remember that a school is a learning ground for social behavior.. if you don' t correct it NOW, you will be dealing with a group of people with problematic behavior later.

Is there too much Law to follow?
You maybe right in the creating of too much laws it is a problem navigating through the whole thing. However that being said, I thought of the question then: do we need more laws? or do we need less of it? Unfortunately i do believe we need more laws... but as we create more laws, and as the years progress, we also need to get rid of outdated or conflicting laws. However this is easier said than done. While it is easy to create laws, it is difficult to back track all previous laws that will come in conflict with a new law. Most of the time it doesn't happen, but when it does, it is very difficult (that is the job of the supreme court to decide which law should be in priority). It does cause confusion, however that is the reason for the existence of lawyers and judges. That is their purpose.. to help navigate conflicts with laws and to find solutions among laws. Its not perfect, but think of what would happen if there are no laws to begin with..it would be a disaster. Now, i was also thinking, how can we reduce the number of all these laws? ... i was just hypothesizing, that if all humans were truly perfect beings (honest, helpful, high EQ, content with life etc..).. we would need less laws, or even none at all.

How to learn a language better ?
English is actually one of the hardest languages to learn... there are a lot of grammatical nuances that can confuse a lot of non-native english speakers. I was exposed to english since 4 years of age and got to know the language very well. however, I am not a native speaker. From the way you wrote your introduction above, i can say you are actually doing very well ! You say you have difficulty but i can understand your intentions very clearly, and from most of the post below you can understand others very well. You already have the basic foundations.. all you need now is practice and unfortunately there is no substitute for it. One of the difficult things for a chinese speaker to do is to speak with an understandable english tone.. it has something to do with the way putonghua is spoken that makes it difficult to pronounce english words. My advice would be, if your priority is to understand english in a quicker way, you'll have to read more and listen to standard conversational english more. If your priority is to speak english, you'll have to practice with an english speaker because that would almost be the only way you can get feedback with how you pronounce certain words and it trains your brain to express your thoughts into direct english without thinking of the chinese terms and translating it in your head. Goodluck.

Why can't women have equal rights? What makes this impossible for people to accept?
You are very much welcome. Remember all of these issues are rooted in societal norms.. written so deeply in our social habits that we always failed to examine them. Unfortunately for the most part, most of the world follows a path which gives advantage to the male sex. However, if you are interested to learn more regarding these issues, know that there are a few societies (unfortunately i can't recall them, one group is composed of ethnic chinese, and one is somewhere in Africa) that is completely female dominant! In fact the females sex dictates everything! and the males are almost just for reproductive purposes... let me repeat that... MALES...are just for reproductive purposes!
