Abstract:

There are many things that are common between the Philippines and China. For one thing, both countries are in Asia and both peoples are of one big race: the Yellow race, the Brown Race to which the Filipinos belong being only a subdi­vision of the Yellow race.

The Philippines and China likewise share ideologies that both peoples have been traditionally nurturing for centuries. The more common of these ideologies include (1) their be­lief that there is a supreme being, a god or heaven; (2) their love of closely-knit family ties; (3) their adherence to the principle of the freedom of the individual to pursue a way of life that would suit his welfare; and (4) their adherence to the basic principle of the right of the individual to own property.
