Chinese Cultural Community and Global Ethics
The word "Community" refers to a closely-related group which interacts in life and shares some common values, thus forming social coherence and producing a sense ofidentity. Cultural community shall mean that when a lot of different small groups are combined into one large group, a common value for different groups is established based on cultures. China has 55 ethnic minorities with a population of over 60 million and different systems in Four Regions of Cross-Strait which involve over 30 million people, there are common interests and common culture which can be combined into a Chinese culture community. This cultural community is not only a Chinese culture with Han ethnic group as the center, but also a cultural China, including the cultures of all ethnic minorities and foreign religions,the value consensus for all ethnic groups and all religions is established ethically on the basis of "affection of the same body", and an attitude of respect, care, appreciation, listening and understanding toward diversified cultures and religions is adopted on the basis of the aesthetic principle of "generous integration". In practice, the "Office for
National Cultural Harmony" shall be established to handle the confiicts between ethnic groups or religions, to develop "Chinese rainbow culture", and the differences are bridged through pluralistic integration of culture.
Part two of this paper discusses the development and difficulties of globalization, and explores the possibility of human cultural community from the viewpoint of altemative globalization, and builds up a "rainbow civilization" of humanity. Based on this, cultural community integrates the ethical values of different levels of Chinese and Westem cultures, and establishes the basic principles and the realm oflife of global ethics.
