"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - attributed to Ben Franklin I am 4th generation American born of Chinese descent and have been to China MANY MANY times. A constitution like that of the US requires a civil society and moral people (which we are quickly losing) to work, otherwise Mr. Franklin will prove correct. China would collapse into chaos with a US-like constitution. From what I have seen in China, people (not all but my impression is a vast majority) generally care only about money. I don't think China is quite ready for liberty. Freedom requires morality to keep from tyranny by the majority. We in the US are well on the road to ruin, voting ourselves the treasury.

The "Cultural Revolution" and "Great Leap Forward" removed traditional morality from Chinese society with with a brutality only matched by Stalin and Hitler. They face the EXACT same social disintegration as America for the exact same reasons. Chan may have certian aspects of his rant correct, after all our current administration IS THE most corrupt AMerica has ever had, even including the clintons AND without their traditional Chinese cultural morality (Confusonism) to sustain them, "they will just do anything".
His cure though, is the same as here, cause the problem then pretend to cure it by gathering ALL power.

I agree. I think it would be wise to ask ourselves what we would do as the leader of a billion or so people. You certainly can't ask everyones opinion.
The reason for the mandatory abortions is to curb the growth in population. If you have more people than can be fed you have to do something like that. that has had flaws however because there is not enough women to go around for so many men. People need to try to understand that the amount of people compared to the amount of land and resources is something hard to cope with.

What worries me is that more females are being selected for abortion than men.

Just what do they think is going to happen to millions of testosterone-pumping males with no women to marry and civilize them.

The Chinese leadership may look north to Russia, and see all of the basically empty land and become territorially aggressive.

Hope its not true; fear that it is.

You ARE reading the future, this WILL happen, and the Russians are stupid for not allying with us. China WONT EVER attack America (they cant get here, from there, got go somewhere else first), But Russia, HE.LL YES. they have done it before to each other repeatedly. Siberia is a ripe, undefended plum, waiting to be picked.
China is THE oldest society on the planet, they raped the easily gotten natural resources already, they need new. Siberia maybe THE most un-human raped places in the world right now. Russia's supply lines to Siberia are LOONG and thin, and exposed to about 1200 miles of Chinese close observation.
Martial arts movie legend Jackie Chan deserves a rhetorical roundhouse kick to the mouth. So does his pal PSY, the Korean rapper whose "Gangnam Style" music video has racked up more than a billion views worldwide. Both men have raked in big bucks from Western fans while trashing the very freedoms and cultures that made them superstars.

Last week, The Washington Post spotlighted a recent interview Chan did with Chinese TV in which he accused America of being "the most corrupt country in the world." The Hong Kong-born Chan also admitted proudly that he is a propagandist for the Communist Chinese government....
