Many Asian countries have a problem with that - US-citizens enter als tourists, teachers, clergymen and try while in contact with locals, to change their life-style. I rarely observed this behavior with other citizens - the huge majority are from USA and are explaining locals all and everything in their own country is bad and all and everything is so much better in United States.

Not all citizens living in Asian countries accept this behavior however. Here in Japan for example Christian clergymen have a hard life, walking from door to door, but in Japan Buddhism/Shintoism is strong and will not change easily. Same with life-style, everything from eating whale meat, how to educate their children or how otherwise they should regulate their family affairs.

I have never noticed such an intrusive behavior from other foreign citizens, not from Germans, not from Russians, not from Chinese...

It's not about politics, it goes deeply into your private famiy life - claiming international (US-made) United Nations regulations etc.
