Message to the OP
Most things we foreigners complain about is in line with Beijing's policies.
Beijing,(the central government) wants people to stand in cue, not spit everywhere, be polite and courteous....the list is long.
Driving habits of locals which we complain about are in violation of Beijing's rules..
Therefore we ( the foreigners) are on Beijing's side.
Whenever a post or article on government corruption arises it's always targeting local officials or provincial officials, again in line with Beijing's laws.
Summary: Beijing wants you locals to BE like "proper" foreigners.
Obey laws and care for others.
