I was using the term qualitative in the strict dialectical sense, like
quantity turning into quality. There is a qualitative difference between
North and South Korea. There is also a qualitative difference between
China and Cuba. The ruling class of the USA sees China as having the
same class character as its own society--that's what the Heritage
Foundation report amounts to.

I disagree with the way in which she made China look less corrupt than
the USA. In fact, there is *more corruption* in China than the USA. You
are dealing with a ruling class that has no sense of 'noblesse oblige'.
