Creating descriptions of our own society as it might appear, seen from "the other side", can be an enlightening experience.

"The other side" can be anything - China, "which we call Red China", is just one of many. Try to set yourself in the position of some moral crusader (unless you are one yourself Smile | :) ). A fundamentalist Christian. A prepper (unless you are one yourself). Whatever. Just try to find all the arguments and justifications that stands in clear opposition to your own (or your society's) views. Search for arguments that your real self cannot counter.

If you are really, really afraid of having your views and possible misconceptions challenged, you should of course refrain. But if you dare to go into the hard arguments and view of those you oppose, it may strengthen you. And, of course, you may end up adjusting your views somewhat.
