If you think politicians in the US, Japan or S. Korea are not morally corrupt, then you are even dumber than I first thought.
Not just politicians, but the population as whole.
Why do counterfeit goods, including automobiles, flourish in China? Because Chines people as whole do not feel guilty about ripping off other people's intellectual work.
how Japan, S. Korea and Taiwan was during their development.
Not the same level of totalitarianism as China is. All these countries had a multi-party political system and real elections, and even so-called dictators were forced to negotiate with the opposition.
There is no opposition in China, because being opposed to the communist party means death.
China today is no different from the other East Asian states during their period of development.
China is drastically different from all the other countries.
Yeah sure, that's why there were thousands of political prisoners in S. Korea and Taiwan.
You are confusing communists with political prisoners.
It is a mix between socialism and capitalism. China is FAR FAR more open today than S. Korea or Japan EVEN TODAY.
You lose your credibility right there.
55 minority groups want to break apart from China?
The last I have heard, there are only two seperatist movements, the Uighurs and the Tibetans
The moment the communist party collapses, China will be split into at least 9 separate nations.
- Tibetans go free.
- Ughurs go free.
- Taiwan declares the Republic of Taiwan.
- Manchus establish a Manchu state.
- Inner Mongolia reverts back to Monglia
- Southen Manchuria reverts back to Korea
- Ethnic Russians reverts back to Russia.
- Hans could split into two nations, the Mandarin speaking nation of North and the Cantonese speaking nation of South.
The only thing that holds China together is the brutal oppression of the communist party.
like I said before, China is an authoritarian state now, NOT a democracy. JUST LIKE how S. Korea was in the 60's to the 80's.
You need to study history outside of China.
