    For me, Democracy and Communism and the like, are propaganda buzzwords in the modern age. What matters most is effective governance (I.e. deliverable results the people are happy with) and a stable system that can change gears (people and/or parties, without bloodshed) if current government is not meeting the needs and wants of the majority. Which is my lead in to:

    This article wouldn't make Gordon Chang happy.

    Being bullish on China is no longer an outlier view

    Illegal for China to do but not illegal for the US. The past several weeks there have been articles how the EU is considering China advancing in technology is a trade violation and illegal because the more independent China becomes, the less China will buy from them. You can spin freedom as a trade violation too because they can't make as much money as they can from you if you're not their slave.

    For the next 10 years China need to improve the lot of country side folk .Great effort has been made today to extend the infrastructure to the countryside thing like road , electricity, water and broadband. It is a basic requirement but the most important ingredient is mostly missing . An intelligent and techsavy entrepreneur to inspire and lead the country folk in revitalizing the country side

    Here China can learn from Japan. Interesting video about a guy who return to his hometown and lead his village to prosperity
    He got his inspiration from reading a Japanese book about Hometown as told by NHK

    Last year, Chang said he was about 5 years late, and in 2015, he said he was about 4 years late. In fact, l first heard him say something like that on Bloomberg and on Fox News around 2010, predicting imminent CCP collapse. Even a broken clock is right twice a day, but not so Gordon Chang, and none of the interviewers held him accountable. Such is the state of American journalism; it's no longer about reporting the news and let viewers decide, it's all agenda-driven 24/7.

    Well looks as if PRC is rising the barriers.

    This could be considered as a WTO violation.

    China should fine tune the barriers so that they hit only those countries that still occupy its territory.
