Have you been to Mainland China or Taiwan?
While I have not, I have friends that have. You will be surprised that
products on the shelf in China is priced such that the masses can
Your arguement is to push western experiences and beliefs onto their
culture. Your expressions show little understanding of Chinese
culture. While they wish freedom, order in their lives is far more
imporatant. China is still an agrarian society with primative
agricultural methods, by western standards. Their expectations are not
as high as ours are. The communist government of China is not the
hardline type like Stalin. China is moving ever so slowly from Mao's
ideals. I would say that China's communism "fall" will be about 30yrs
behind that of Russia's. By about 2010 to 2020, there should be noone
left that directly served with Chairman Mao. China will then be like
Russia, elect their own Goochy Gorby. Gorbechev(SP?) was the first
Russian premier that had no ties to Stalin. It took nearly 35 yrs
after Stalin's death for Gorby to come to power. We are now 30 yrs
after Mao's death. SO maybe in five to fifteen yrs China will elect a
Chairman will lead China into a more democratic society.
I do forsee changes in China's internal politics in the near future.
As China emerges futher out of their isolationistic past, they will
have to deal with internal politics and economics that if not
addressed will rip the country apart.
