OP-ED: Why Real Reform In China Can No Longer Wait

A society with true hope is one where each generation sets higher and higher expectations. Thus, reform ought to match the mainstream population's ideal. If improvements cannot keep up with young people's social expectations, problems will arise.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Looks like China's up and coming youngsters might like a few changes.

"A society with true hope is one where each generation sets higher and higher expectations." If China is beginning to recognize this fact - the US is losing hope altogether!
Thanks for the post Cal!

Great article, Cal, but I don't think China is interested in reform. All the want to do is make their people and animals suffer.

The Chinese MUST continue to lead the world in overpopulation reform! Any nation which seeks recognition for other nations should be reducing its population!

Otherwise, we'll all just starve together.

I find it ironic that we criticize other nations when ours is pretty damn bad. NOT that I like China, just sayin'....

"Simply relying on the good conscience of private companies falls far short in protecting workers and citizens. It is fair to say that "the government was absent" in this tragic case. " --- Sounds like a Republican/Teabagger utopia!

"China is standing before a critical crossroads, where reforms are as difficult as they are necessary. The more that progress is delayed, the harder it becomes. Not only are China's reforms up against the corruption of the system, but are also racing against the rising expectations of the younger generation. If Chinese authorities don't move fast enough, bigger troubles will surely be in store."

I think it behooves us all to listen. Can it be said that "the only constant is change" is a good summary of the article?
