    The article is flawed in calling public resistance to bullshit "rare." Stuff like this happens all the time in China but the CCP stamps out reporting of it as much as they can.

    Villagers' complaints ruled legitimate...

    China says Wukan anger was justified
    Sun, Jan 01, 2012 - DIGGING DEEP:An investigation into the complaints leveled by the villagers is still ongoing, but already it has uncovered embezzlement by a local CCP leader

    Nothing dampens the undies of the CCP more than rural uprisings and religious movements.

    “The ‘Great Society’ has not worked and it’s put us into the modern welfare state,” she said.

    “If you look at China, they don’t have food stamps. If you look at China, they’re in a very different situation. They save for their own retirement security…They don’t have the modern welfare state and China’s growing. And so what I would do is look at the programs that LBJ gave us with the Great Society and they’d be gone.”

    What Republican Presidential Candidate said we should be more like China?

    They'll execute Xue Chang and some other mid-level government members for corruption and use that to show that they're cracking down on it. Otherwise it'll go back to business as usual.

    In reality, the mistake made here was the officials not being able to keep their corruption on the down low.
