Social norms are certainly relative. In some Muslim cultures, the fact that women are allowed to walk around sans head covering is deemed atrocious.
The fact that dogmeat is more commonly consumed in China and other Oriental countries may seem terrible to you, but it is the norm in these countries and in many cultures throughout history. And, the dogs they eat are not their pets, they, like the chickens, pigs, and cows eaten in most industrialized countries, were raised specifically for purposes of eating. Many countries around the world also eat rabbit, and personally, I find it quite tasty.
I agree that the Chinese government has many problems, mostly with corruption and bribery, and that the fact that young women often attempt to "get in" with rich, affluent men rather than make a living for themselves is quite unfortunate, but prostitution is not uncommon if illegal in every country, and "gold-digging" certainly isn't uncommon or illegal.
I dated a lovely Chinese girl for many years and had many discussions with her family, which made me believe the "baby girl-selling" was exaggerated, but if you have hard statistics, I will accept them.
I am not trying to assert that the Chinese government is good or even better, my assertion is that from the perspective of other countries and cultures, the US government and social norms are just as "f**ked up" as the Chinese appears to some.
I believe its better to keep an open mind and consider logically the social and economic consequences of certain forms of government or changes to the government rather than claiming they are bad because you find the social norms distasteful.
