Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Feudalism is European concept, don't forget. There are so many things here in Asia which you cannot describe using European terms, because these words have different meanings and history here.

This maybe a problem when one tries to explain some things to European audience and stuck as our terms are unknown there.

Chinese no doubt are (and were) very clever using negative European-style cliches and terms to justify their imperialist policies.
