Defining the topic[edit]

The article previously said

More often the west thinks of Asian meaning Southeast and (north)East Asian people. But in reality, Asian values are conservative ideologies that apply mainly to Southeast Asia and (north)East Asia.

It isn't the entire West that thinks of "Asia" mostly as the East & Southeast. Even in the UK, the word "Asian" implies South Asian, so I corrected this. But the second sentence there sounds awkward. What is it trying to clarify? It says "But in reality", but the rest of the sentence doesn't refute anything written above. Was there a mistake? If this really is supposed to be about the values of East, Northeast, & Southeast Asia, than that would basically be the East Asian cultural sphereWikipedia, also known as the "Confucian world". I think this article should be more upfront about this, and describe how this topic is tied to Confucianism.

This article is a misshapen blob of grammar/spelling mistakes, shoddy formatting, awkward wording and run-on sentences. Twodots (talk) 07:57, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
True. I shaped it up a bit, but more work is needed to make it sound more sensible. Bongolian (talk) 08:22, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
