    It appears that China as a country completely outclasses the USA. The gist of the article is that the USA has a polarized society & that in turn created a polarized government... relegating America to a "once was" status. As much as I hate to admit it I believe they are right. China's ability to bring capitalism on line successfully as America once did seems to be what has made China great. I wonder what will be the fate of the western nations & their welfare state mentality?

    I guess when you have a single ruling party that stomps liberals to death it makes it a lot easier to keep people right where you want them.

    Of course, let's not actually look at what constitutes 'middle class' in each country...
