provocative snippets:
Daoism, Confucianism, Chinese Buddhism are rationalistic quasi-religions lacking any personal relationship with a transcendent deity or deities. The ancestor- and spirit-worship of Chinese folk religion is
individualized to families only.

This is one reason why China has periodically endured spasms of murderous cultural insanity.

(...)

The causal connection here is that the lack of spiritual fulfillment
builds up a frustration in the Chinese soul until it bursts out in a
psychic explosion of deadly irrational fervor.

Yeah, right
I think I saw as episode of Space: 1999 with that as a theme. As I recall, after the soul of the Chinese burst, everybody was hurled into the 9th dimension. LOL. :)
