31. China has been around longer than 3,000 years.

The people there seem to be more truly patriotic than our people. Maybe the reason for that is they have had to fight off invaders for a large amount of their long history.

The Great Wall was not put up for no reason. If you study the design, it has mini-forts spaced a few hundred yards apart, that was so that archers could fire arrows down toward invaders, while staying somewhat protected against return arrows.

The massive country mostly developed an “us against them” mindset, and any internal variance to that mindset was crushed (as we are hearing about).
