It might take years or even decades, but the cracks are already starting to show

Visit China and see the kinds of goods available in stores. Cosmetics, clothing, appliances, etc....people are buying them, using them and wanting more. Young women want to look pretty and by stylish and that drives a LOT of commerce. Think about it.

Communism in its purest form destroys human creativity and ignores human nature. Unfortunately, capitalism in ITS purest form has the same effect.

What to do?

"Perhaps the best lesson is that all political parties lose power eventually."

I think the demise of the current political structure in China has been inevitable since the Internet began. They simply cannot keep the truth of the rest of the world from reaching their citizens, though they do try very hard, they simply can't control the news the way they once did. The ever increasing contact with the rest of the world through business contributes as well. What it will evolve into is up in the air, but what is, can't and won't last forever. Their people simply won't allow it to. Change there will come from within, from the young, and it is inevitable.

I suggest the next book you read is thus: "Wild Swans - Three Daughters of China" by Jung Chang. If you are interested in Pre Communist China and its History - then this is a Must Read, it is often hard-going and heart rendering - but you must evaluate the facts from a woman who has suffered the hardships alongside her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, after digesting this step backwards into Chinese History - perhaps your "understanding" will be altered a tad? Jung Chang's book held me in its thrall, I have just finished reading it and am avidly reading it again to fine tune the facts I have "glossed over". Jung Chang and her Two Previous Wild Swans are a testament to hardship and survival.

Gene makes a great point. I never considered China's vulnerability due to the interenet.

The biggest reason I have read and now believe is simply their political system is probably one of the most corrupt governments in existence. All the enforcers of the "rules" are bribed to overlook them. Nepotism is rampant, payoffs are extremely rampant.

Very good comparisons. All governments fail and get replaced eventually and the communists have had a good run.

The stresse's of survival causes cracks in almost all governments. Chinas' Communist Party may look like a jigsaw puzzle but I think it will long outlast me!

Don't wait with bated breath for the end of the Chinese oligarchy. it is firmly established and quashes any opposition to its authority. From.first their first breath children are taught to venerate Mao,.to love China and the party.and give them unquestionable loyalty.

Once you have developed a middle class, it is inevitable.

The Soviet Union collapsed under its own weight. China may be politically Communist, but it is economically Capitalist. The Chinese are more and more catching the capitalist bug. It is only a matter of time. How many people would have believed you if, 25 or so years ago, you told people that the Soviet Union was about to go kablooey? Red China may endure another 20-30 years, or it may implode before the 2010s are done. For all I know, it could be imploding right now. However, I'm not placing any bets!

The internet is indeed powerful, which is why everyone in power is trying to destroy it. There are clauses in both of the big trade deals (TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership, and TTIP, the European Union version of the same) to severely restrict internet usage. Even the FCC in the United States is proposing new rules to make entities who pay for it more accessible than entities that don't. There are petitions all over Care2 on each of these issues; I want to get this posted but will try to return with links.

Communism was invented by the new York banksters and like Russia the Chinese are waking up and rejecting the yoke of enslavement by the banksters something Americans need to wake to, Im not holding my breath.
