From the esteemed Jonathan Blanks, responding to Thomas Friedman's column on China and climate change.

'Benevolent' dictatorship / autocracy beats the deliberative process of democratic republics because those people can get things done!

Just don't look at the man behind the curtain jailing, censoring, beating, and executing untold numbers of dissenters, choking-off less desirable political content on the internet, forcing abortions on families, and only allowing markets to flourish in certain geographic locations while so many people still live in the countryside without basic amenities those contemptible and inefficient free nations have had for, oh, about 100 years.
