Talk:People's Republic of China
I revived the article I started some years ago since there has been a link to it atop the China article for a while now. Basically I have incorporated a lot of the material from there into here. In some places, the material was rather biased against the PRC (lots of references to "propaganda", so I have tried to neutralise that. John Stephenson 13:47, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

I am questioning the accuracy of this statement regarding China being the 'oldest continuous culture in the world'. I have no doubt that it's one of the longest extant cultures in the world, but how can it be longer than the continuous culture of India stretching back before written records? I would like to see this rewritten not to be so exclusive to China.
While the modern PRC was established only in 1949, its people are arguably the latest generation of the oldest continuous culture in the world, stretching back over 4000 years.
I recommend something like: While the modern PRC was established only in 1949, it contains one of the oldest continuous cultures in the world, stretching back over 4000 years.
