Just more proof: the chinese are demi-humans. If they deserved the same respect as (insert literally anyone else in the world other than a chinese person), than they'd of wised up to this long ago.

So long, though, as Western Societies continue to pour economic resources into China, via private investment even, the Chinese Government will remain the same. Look at Chinese media: it fiercely talks up consumerism even more so than any Western Society. A schoolgirl so engrossed in the desire for the latest jeans, a college student salivating over the hottest cell phones, and a working stiff with bright eyes for that shiny car will hardly complain about his or her political rights when those material desires are satiated.

If Western Societies weren't hell bent on "cheap goods" the economic resources that the Chinese people have been using to distract themselves from their lack of political and individual rights would dry up, and the Chinese people would rise up to fight away a system which does not reward them (and clearly, their political process does not).

However, Westerner's, I think, have proven they do not care for the human rights of the Chinese. They want their cheap toilet paper, cheap computer parts, and cheap furniture. They want their Wal-Mart, tigerdirect and IKEA. Who cares about human rights of some people half a world away when that table is only $19.99 and would look great in your dorm or den or barn.

It falls then to the Chinese people themselves to demand political rights, to rise to the call of not just past American politicians like Patrick Henry, but to the call of Maximilien Robespierre, to the call of Nelson Mandella, and have its own revolution. What little the Chinese know is that when the economic gain dries up, when the river stops flowing, their government will have little care for them. Already they insufficiently handled the great quakes of 2008. It will take a mere misstep by the party to wake up China. It won't be something significant: the Chinese leadership isn't dumb enough to miss quakes or famines or disease outbreaks completely. No, they will do something "for the greater good," tell the Chinese people that they have the best interests of the Chinese people at heart. And then someone will make a mistake. And like in the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the end of Apartheid, people will get angry. That anger will lead to rebellion, that rebellion will lead to freedom.

[citation][nom]demonhorde665[/nom]as for teh two idiots arguing over politics , communism and democracy, capitalism socalism monarcy palamentary monarchy, all have thier flaws, they all have thier strong points as well , communism IS NOT what china is directly , they are a communistic dictator ship , and infact they are more of a dictator ship than they are communist , commumism in china is only refering to thier economic set up , their goverment is a Dictator ship , period.of last note , it has been said one of teh best forms of goverment is a monarchy , when the monarch is a good one (Ie a deccent human being , not a greedy deceitful wicked one). the only problem with monarches in the past was that curch and state where never seperated and quite often monarchs answered to the church not thier people ( I don't mean to pick on the catholics , but well the catholic church did bassically command every king of th e dark and middle ages)[/citation]

If you are going to call them "idiots", why don't you stop spelling like a "douche bag" ?
