    We are starting to see china get to the point we reached at our civil war, except instead of north vs. south its the enfranchised minority (CPC members and people in the military) and the unenfranchised majority.

    I dont think china can continue to exist half communist and half captialist. One of them is going to have to go. I wouldnt call it facist quite yet due to the lack of general nationalistic support for the government.

    The formerly communist elite have embraced predatory capitalism.

    They are where we were (sort of) back around 1900.

    The solution for China is UNIONISM, except the formerly predatory communist elite (now turned into predatory capitalist elite) will -- much as our "captains of inudstry" did in the beginning of our period of industrial unionism -- set the troops upon the workers.


    Tragically, the USA is headed to where China is, even as China is headed to where we used to be.

    China handles unionism by a quick execution of union leaders. They aren't stupid. They've seen how unionism ends up by watching us.
