No attack to China on these lines can ever have a chance to survive.

"Democracy", in the USAmerican (not "American") context is charged
with meaning, this meaning being the worldwide hegemony of US
imperialist domination. This translates into some features of the US
society which are termed "democracy".

Among others, one of such features is an overwhelming amount of
socialism. But it is socialism for the rich, not for the mass of the

"Socialism" in China means, essentially and firstly, absence of
foreign control of the Chinese state.

This is quite meaningful for the average Chinese, you may be sure of that.

Reality is a dialectical thing. Black and white coexist and mingle all the time.
