Do you know for a FACT that Synta workers are treated like serfs and
their "freedoms" are repressed? How do you know that they aren't
averaging bigger incomes than their counterparts in the factories that
are stamping out crappy dollar-store widgets? Did you ever consider
the possibility that many Chinese are willing to set aside or defer
political and individual freedoms in the pursuit of economic wealth? In
fact, I'll bet a lot of people still subscribe, consciously or not, to
the Confucian notion of social harmony, and that it should prevail over
individual needs. What if you are judging China through a "Western
lens" and assuming that they should adopt YOUR value system?
Reeks of Bush mentality.
