CULTURE: the school-learned, family-inherited lifestyles and socially acquired traditions of the folks of a nation including their patterned and repetitive ways of thoughts and actions as general information for this blog.
In China: Confucianism appears to be the primary motivating force to influence Chinese folks from generations to generations in a nutshell in the East.
In USA: Western culture appears to follow the Judeo-Christian tradition. However,such influence must add other religions of minorities in the United States and other nations in the West.
My succinct awareness would be subject to comments by the readers with specific knowledge of other religions as part of the culture.
