Is this going to become the most political thread on the board?
That was my fault, my attempt at a humorious remark got a stone rolling, or is that a rolling stone?
My personal thoughts on China:
I respect their country as a whole just for surviving to be the oldest continuous civilization on earth.
I respect their burden to have to govern the single largest population on earth.
Do I respect their present government? It's certainly better then Mao's rein, and they have made good progress in
improving the life of some of their population. But they certainly have a long was to go before their people can
enjoy the same freedoms we often take for granted.
