Chinese people had given up ways of life to the people ruling them. , their loss of culture was far worse. They realized that they were not being protected and that they were being treated very unfair
Who/what started Imperialism in China, and Why:

In the early 1800s, the British treasury was being depleted due to its dependence upon imported tea from China. The Chinese still considered their nation to be the Middle Kingdom, and therefore viewed the goods the Europeans brought to trade with as nearly worthless trinkets. To solve this trade imbalance Britain imported opium, processed from poppy plants grown in the Crown Colony of India, into China.
Chinese officials attempted to ban the importation of the highly addictive opium, but ultimately failed. The British declared war on China in a series of conflicts called the Opium Wars. Superior British military technology allowed them to claim victory and subject the Chinese to a series of unequal treaties. When did imperialism start in China?
it was around the 1800's The End Life As a Citizen Being Imperialized
