So... Why Not Try Freedom?

China, having failed to successfully achieve the communist dream-state, some time ago decided to start pursuing gross materialism, adopting many of the tenets of capitalism while avoiding any of the complicated morals that might complicate authoritarian rule.

Apparently that isn't working out.  So now China is trying to re-introduce the traditional culture and values the communist party worked so very hard to wipe out: WSJ: Why China is Turning Back to Confucius. ... while again working to maintain authoritarian rule by a small minority.

Anything but freedom and liberal democratic principles...
