Ah, critical thinking. I've heard that it is a magic, mysterious capability which only white people (and some white wannabe) possess. By white people, I means people who looks white, think white and act white, so the list include Russian (excluding Chechens, Tatars or Dagestani), other European excluding Roma, Albanian, Bosniak, Turkish, Sami, Irish travellers, Kalmyk, Mari and perhaps Jews... Am I right.?Being good in maths means little to nothing. I am good in math. Most Viets are good in math. Chinese are good in math. So Japanese, Koreans and many others. But those asian people are too stupid in critical thinking, they lack in innovation, in invention. Real things that matter in real life.
With regards to innovation, it is also a mysterious fact that without the magic capability of critical thinking, East Asian countries of China, Japan and Korea managed to file a number of international patents which were higher than the rest of the world, combined, in 2019, according to WIPO.
The tiny country of South Korea filed the number of patents which were nearly equal to half of all European countries (East and West) combined (in 2017. 2018 and 2019 and possibly before that). Taiwan was quite similar.
And China alone filed more patents than either US or all European countries combined in 2019
