I grew up in an era of profound transformations. I understand and agree with many of your points. But the matter is complicated, I tried to type many words, still founding not enough. So I make it simple:
1. The national pursuit of China is a scientific-industrial-military powerhouse, it has reasons. This kind of modernization generally fits the goal. May not perfectly fits, but generally fits in most places.
2. The are different kind of lifestyles. One more "natural and healthy", one more "modern" with all kinds of fashions. More people in China loves the second way.
3.Chinese society emphasizes collectivism, the government want to standalize everything. And they want control, standalization helps control.
