I have to agree with Frog there. IMHO, China is in a position to make a good transition from Communism to Capitalism by not trying to do it too quickly. Sooner or later, the Chinese government is going to have to realize that they have to ease off if they want China to see greater prosperity.

Bear in mind though, they are just as capable of having the same thing happen to them.

Because USSR fell, does not automatically mean PRC will fall.

China is a Eastern Culture Country, completely different than USSR.

Ah, sry i did not mean it that way, i meant that the soviets were strong but they became weak by the 80'S WHILE china is still growing

I was saying that Russia has like I think 7 or 8 differnt times zones, That is Russia right now, They were running a very large empire wich I am sure was hard to rule. China on the other hand is Like Brazil, Most of the population is on one side so they can rule easir.

I agree with godofthunder9010's point here.

China is no more real Socialism nor Communism, China is practically a Capitalist country only with one-party system.

If you look at Chinese leaders of now, they are all very well educated, and quite humble (polite) and with style, I mean at least TOP leaders. And the Freedom of Speech is much better than some 10 years ago, and it is only getting more and more free.

Most of Chinese would believe that in some 20 to 30 years, China will be "democratic" too, with multiple parties system.

I think China is only going to the good and peaceful direction. It may take sometime, but China will be there, for sure.

Yeah but thier is a diff between China and America, America can blow the world up about 40 times and we still wouldn't be done with our Nuclear Supply, China can not do it at all.
If this is true, other nations have the right to disarm America's WMD attack the US because the US can destroy the world. That is height of hypocracy! Damien, whats on your mind?

That was actualy a former Cold War Figure from like the early 80's I Think, It is lesser now however we can still blow the world up multiable times.


I also agree that China is letting up on thier Communism, however they are trying to stay at it like when they banned elections in HK.
