Mainland publication criticized Anthony Wong Chau Sun's comment online. "When you write traditional Chinese characters in China, over half the people don't understand them. Hua Xia Civilization in Mainland is already dead." Chau Sun yesterday replied, "Any further talk is promoting me. I am not against simplified characters, I am against eradicating traditional characters! A normal discussion isn't any so-called China Hong Kong conflict. It's the group of extremists who yelled, 'you are English dog' that has conflict with the entire society."

This problem is also affecting Japan, as many young japanese is using more katakana to replace kanji. Hence many older generation are getting headaches from reading katakana.

Its an inevitable trend in asia where things become more simplified and rules aren't followed. This gen in asia has no significant conflict and spends all day taking selfies n blogging. Feel sad for the future.

I think traditional characters are beautiful. If you deconstruct it you can easily memorize and write it. I'm not a fan of simplified even though I learned both in Chinese school. Sometimes the simplified characters don't even look Chinese. To this day, I cannot read simplified w/o a dictionary next to me.
