    I'm not saying I want it that way, but in a morbid way, it is rather impressive for the Chinese to say "Right! We want to build the biggest Dam in the world. You over there, city of 2 million people, get up, you're moving".

    What point did I prove?

    That I'm a lib who admires the Chinese way of oppressing their own people?

    Nope.

    Because I'm niether a liberal, nor do I admire oppression in anyway way shape or form.

    I was making more of a dark joke.

    But I wonder what satisfaction you get from derailing your own thread with this rubbish?

    You're egotistical.

    That China's authoritarianism is impressive has nothing to do with you, and that the truth is expressed by someone is unavoidable.

    China's authoritarianism, is coupled with their human rights violations, repression,etc. and anyone who admires it has some serious issues in need of education.

    It fits eight into Obama's love for radicals Socialism?Marxism. Way to go Liberals.

    A revolution in China can have no reasonable chance of success for the simple reason that there is no clear target. Who are they supposed to remove? China's system was developed from the beginning with the intention of preventing any one person or group from controlling everything. Now, that does not mean popular action cannot have an effect on reform as this has been the case many times in the PRC's history for good and for bad, but a "revolution" is just a naive term used by people who actually think China can be characterized in any way as a dictatorship.

    You are right. What they are trying to do is defend the indefensible by attacking the OP as being somehow disengenuous. It's the Alinsky playbook in all its moronic stupidity. They keep forgetting that we can read and they don't own all of the presses anymore.
    It's become really pathetic.

    Wrong. The central committee is a specific target and Hu is it's head. There will be real revolution in China soon. This is merely the beginning. They are testing the will of the Party right now. Between 2012 and 2017 there will be a sweeping revolution there. It is inevitable. With economic gains there comes a need for personal freedom. Lesiure time breeds dissatisfaction with being penned in like a slave. If they try to take away the economic gains it will only hasten the revolution. They need to hold free and fair multiparty elections and have a smooth transition to an open society or they will descend into anarchy.

    Are you referring to oppression IN east tennessee? Or are you trying to intimidate me by being slick with the knowledge of my general location? I have a public blog with my photo. You don't scare me at all.

    Don't try that crap with me or you'll end up with a fist in your mouth.
