"utterly" unrecognizable? myriad of abhorrent problems aside, it's still a
"communist party" in power. i began to understand (what appears to be)
henry liu's position a bit better when he once argued (something to the
likes of): would you prefer that a solidarity(poland)-type union was formed
there, so that the likes of soros could fund it and completely subvert the
country into an openly-capitalist one?
from my direct interactions, even some of the most money-driven of the
nouveau-riche chinese still hold as their ultimate ideal a socialist or
communist country; they're just locked into the thinking that they must go
through a "primary phase" of development first. this seems to me a vital
distinction from the emergent middle-class of other countries. i believe
someone else on this list made mention of this a few weeks ago.
