Arbitrarily, I chose to answer a Quora question, 《Do Chinese people have superior DNA to the Westerners?》.
Technology just isn’t there yet to determine the answer gene by gene. Still, one can look at tangential facts provided by history. My opinion – in most of the cases, – _yes_.
1, First, let’s examine the lifespan of each race/civilisation. The oldest Chinese dynasties, the half-mythical Shang and Zhou, hail from the latter part of the 2nd millennium before the common era. Most of the Nordics of the time were savages, and the closest they reached an orderly society was in the Mycenaean cities of Greece – although even there, the Nordics learned statecraft from the non-Aryan Pelasgian Minoans of Crete, who had more in common with the more ancient cultures of West Asia. And in India, the Aryans barely finished the conquest of the Harappan civilisation the level of which they would not attain for centuries to come.
Antiquity-wise, Korea and China win hands down (unless one counts the Sumerian and Egyptian cultures as Western, which they were not).
2, The ability to overcome dark ages – their respective Three Kingdoms periods both China and Korea survived stronger than before, whereas the Roman civilisation of the West lost its religion in the aftermath of the Crisis of the Third Century CE and utterly collapsed in the 5th ct. CE.
More recent example proofs – the century of humiliation both Korea and China endured with dignity and emerged world actors, whereas both Greece and Europe never recovered from the Peloponnesian and Second World wars respectively. Russia disintegrated twice in the 20th ct.
3, The ability to resist foreign culture/religion/ideology – Rome converted to Judaeo-Christianity in the 4th ct. CE, and along with them, so did the Germanics, the Irish and all the Slavs. Meanwhile, in East Asia, Buddhism entered in ca. mid-1st millennium CE, and already in the 11–12th ct. CE, it was being supplanted by native rationalist neo-Confucianism.
More current examples – both Korea and China have abandoned the flunkeyism of adoring the early proponents of Marxism such as the Jew Karl Marx and the German Friedrich Engels – Korea has adopted the Juche Idea under the guidance of Kim Il Sung, whereas China split off on the path of Maoism, with later economic reforms of Deng Xiaoping. Meanwhile, the Western USSR never turned to nativism in its history, and the Western America has been destroying the statues to Columbus, preferring black history months to its own heritage. Another win for East Asia.
The only area where the Mongoloid race lost was in ocean navigation – even though Korea had the best admiral in the history of naval warfare (Ri Sun Sin in the war against the Japanese), and the Ming dynasty of China beat Portugal to sea voyages, the failed feudal ideologies made their nations lose the crucial centuries to isolationism – so much so that in the 19th ct., both countries entered a Malthusian trap, and soon became prey to the European colonialists.
Clearly, the East Asian civilisation shows a better track record than the Western one. Nevertheless, the ultimate judge is set to be the future – the Europeans were struck by the merciful spirit of Christianity, and never used their overwhelming power to genocide East Asia. Here’s hoping the Koreans and the Chinese will wield their future mastery with ruthlessness and vision.
