"If this is true, then it is quite understandable why Confucian values would erode. It's hard to maintain the integrity of family or community when economic and social and cultural forces of global scale are encouraging individualization and undermining collectives of all sorts."

Just a "drive by" i.e. impressionistic thought. Could it be that the new, not-yet-recognized collectives, the modern collectvities, are undermining the older collectivities? I don't have anything more to add to this impression, just thought I'd toss the ball out there see who kicks it around.

Interesting idea....what modern collectivities are you thinking of? Computer networks and webs?
