That means you dont know all that much about the complete history and origin of Malaysian 'Malays'. The present 'Malays' are as much the descendants of native peoples - both Austro-Asiatic and Autronesian native peoples - who incidentally were cousins from the same parent Austric stock - who hv inhabited the land for thousands of years - as well as somewhat later immigrants, then further overlaid even much later by other later immigrating peoples.

Sweeping statement.

I was jokingly referring to the Papuan-like people they displaced maybe 6,000-10,000 years ago. I'd say my statement isn't really sweeping, it's a generality.

There is one thing in common among them,they are all heavily influenced by Confucian culture,you can also put Hongkong,Singapore,Macau and mainland China to the list.the only difference is main land China is a communist country,but you can still see Confucius culture everywhere you turn your eyes to.

I think the advancement of the mentioned countries has more to do with the movement of "The Industrial Revolution" than that they have Confucius in common.

Confucius's influence is waning in Asia as the cultures of the world intermingle. It will take another 1,000 years if not more but more and more over the years, I think, we will see more consolidation of cultures into a more worldwide staple.

Confucian morality that produces the lowest crime rates in the world is still strong, and won't be going away any time soon.

I think that's because good leader and easy to access to America&Western market(before). Now It's globalization so...no problem anymore. But when soviet was alive....Market was closed off each other between Western and Soviet. And Western Market was better than Soviet. Japan,Korea and Republic of China could close to better market first. Japan was modernize first before WW2. and Korea had a good leader and hard work. I dont know about Republic of China.

This is just my opinion.

The political situation in Myanmar was much more stable than South Korea a few decades back, I should say. Military dictatorship was very firmly planted.

The difference, however, is the quality of the leadership and level of insight that leaders had. In case of South Korea, nationwide determination also contributed greatly to the nigh-miraculous economical breakthrough.
