Eastern Siberia vs China
#21
I saw a chart of "protests" in China that had become violent recently.

I think it was on Stratfor. They were ALL over the nation.

Stratfor posits that their prosperity is driven by un-natural causes,that party hacks are using their positions to grab their piece of the capitalist pie,that this is happening in an avalanche type move to get while the getting is good,that it is causing tremendous dislocations,massive industrial death rates(5000 miners died in 2005),massive environmental and social dislocations,the recent benzene spill the tip of the iceberg.

China is in major trouble internally folks.

Poor moms, dads, and babies who have the misfortune of having been born to live in China. Sad. Sad. So Sad for these innocents. May God's mercy shorten their sufferings. [Image: Noel12.gif]

Actually, in some ways, this is a good time, as the walls of tyranny will be likely to come down in their lifetime. the most horriffic time was from 1949 to mid 70s.

the longer China holds off this reform movement, the greater the tendency to fragment into smaller units. And I, for one, would rather see them fragment, as the people would have a better chance of gaining more Liberty.

JohnL,

The impression you get from Stratfor is the social contract is broken,they CAN'T reform,the CCCP is totally lost of it's legitimacy.

They can only die and whatever arises is what arises. I couldn't believe all the spots on China's map where violence has occurred,the people are no more fearful of China's CCCP than leftists are of Bush.

Good idea that, of fragmenting into smaller units. The basis of China's identity since its birth has been internalization: being the navel of the universe. During the great age of exploration, China sent explorers all over the world, found where everybody was, returned home, and stayed there - content that all that mattered was already theirs.

Would smaller nations become a part of the greater world, as opposed to seeing themselves as the end-all and be-all?
