About Chase Coulson
As a lover of people and culture, it seems only natural that I would choose to learn Chinese, the language of a people and nation with over 5,000 years of history. As a professional translator, it seems only natural that I would thirst to help spread that rich and lengthy history and culture to the four corners of the globe. Through Watching America, I hope to have the opportunity for the world to get even a small taste of Chinese thought. I hope the opinions expressed by the brilliant authors in Chinese publications like, Huanqiu, The People's Daily, Guangzhou Daily, The Sun and Wen Wei Po, et al, can provide Western audiences with an eye opening and thought-provoking reading experience. It's simply not enough to look at any issue through the tunnel vision or rose colored glasses of our own domestic media. The only way to understand any issue is to see it magnified and reflected back at us through a new set of cultural eyes. Let's join hands and search our souls together and see what we can come up with to make this world a healthier place to live! To a brighter and more meaningful human experience! Cheers!
