ABSTRACT
The article discusses the reasons why has China fallen behind the world developments despite its significant and promising contributions in the early inventions. There are two explanations presented here in an attempt to provoke constructive thoughts. First is the dynasty change in 1644 and ensuing changes in the feudal Chinese culture. Second is the ignorance of queen Dowager Cixi.
