Is China the most civilised country on earth (part 2) ?

In China, lunch break on a typical working day is two hours, during which one has a leisurely bite to eat and especially a snooze. And in summer that snooze may go on a little longer.

Of course, the problem here is a tendency to be too relaxed, with concerns over under-productivity. So you find all manner of public campaigns to encourage people to work a little harder, be more diligent, and so on. Lenin also railed against what he felt was, in his situation, Russian laziness. I’m not so sure, since given the opportunity people will do only so much as they need to get by.
