    I like what you wrote about China. I also like what you quote of Wallace, and I agree that it is relevant and always necessary to involve people. I just do not quite agree that US is becoming fascist. there is a fundamental difference between China and US -actually many differences. I think it is a good thing that US gov’t was shutdown lately. People need to experience “creative destruction” to be able to get a chance to reflect and try something new. What China will have is not a creative destruction, is war, massive chaos, a great pain beyond any imagination -and time is running out for China to experience small degree of destruction gradually in exchange for peace. even though many people dislike what US gov’t does -it is still perhaps the only power -at least the most significant power to stand against China -for that reason, it is important to give some applause to US when they did something right -like a “China Human Rights Report” and a number of those institutions to monitor what China does.
