Last night I listened to John Batchelor of WABC 770 AM talk radio chat with Gordon Chang (Forbes et al) about the possible threat of war with China and America over Taiwan. The majority of the Taiwanese do not wish to be part of Communist China, they enjoy their freedom and independence, but the Chicoms are showing size.
I have read several books and articles about China and the Chicoms. And almost every evening I listen to the brilliant John Batchelor who interviews people around the world. Of course, that doesn't mean that I know what is going on. Therefore, I try to become more aware.
The old guard and the military hold onto power. Yet the country might implode either economically, spiritually or democratically. There is a huge middle class who have tasted the finer things in life, but millions more who have not.
Frankly, I think India, the largest democracy in the world will catch up and surpass China.
In the past year or so many servers etc. from Taiwan have linked to my weblog.
One can type the word China or Chicoms in the searchbox and something will pop up. Sometimes you have to scroll to the end of the list of topics. I highly recommend reading "Prisoner of the State: The Secret Journal of Premier Zhao Ziyang" to get an understanding of how the Old Guard played the corrupt communist game... and still do.
