I would like to share my experience and feelings about group building.
The concept of group building we just presented is normal for this society (the US). Unfortunately I came from an abnormal Communist society. For the last 67 years teamwork was not a common thing in Red China, especially in government, schools or state-run businesses.
There is a notorious slogan in China: the Party remains forever great, glorious and righteous, and there are songs named the Party is our mother, Chairman Mao is our savior etc. The leaders are worshipped and cannot be challenged. Independent thinking is not allowed or encouraged. It is exactly the opposite to the characteristics of a great group, such as mutual respect and sincerely helping each other etc.
The Communist Party is a privileged group because only its members have opportunities to work in the government and to control all the resources. The legal system cannot do anything even one party member murdered others if the Party wants to protect him/her, while they would go to persecute good persons if the Party considered them as enemies. It is because that the Party is above the law.
The word Party is pronounced Dang in Chinese. It is so similar to the word Gang. Actually, the original meaning of the Party is exactly same as gangs in ancient China. Now I understand why the Communist Party destroyed everything including environment, culture, family values and morality. Because the Communist Party is not a normal group, it is a criminal gang.
I am happy to be in the US and now I can work with other people in a group with positive and healthy environment. Thank you.
