Of course national economic success and political stability are not guarantees of freedom, equality, rule of law, or high standards of living....


Yes, a point I agree with. But think it the other way, can you achieve 'freedom, equality, rule of law or high standards of living' if a country is economically poor and politically explosive?

Also by claiming own's country has fine qualities of 'freedom, human rights and democracy' doesn't mean this country won't violate others's.

Btw, I prefer Li Jinsong's way. At least he attends legal, government-approved church services rather the illegal underground.

Let's just face the truth!

"The Communist Party often does not subject itself to the laws it enacts, prompting cynicism about its real intentions."

This is true, but the same thing happens everywhere including Li Jianqiang's "free, God-blessed land." The US law says the country can only have a war with another country when it's under danger, and it can take a preemptive action ONLY when it's threatened.

So the US government launched the Iraq war with the excuse that this country had WMD, but it is not just cynical to think that America had this war because this country had OIL!

China is making progress, both economically and in the term of human rights. However, that progress still seems not fast enough to stop the western media picking on the Middle Kingdom.

Nonetheless, it's great to know the western world is criticizing China all the time, because with their well-intentioned supervision, China can accelerate its process of getting better. But a Radical change, as  Li Jianqiang suggested, is simply stupid!

Take a look at the Central European and Asian countries like Kazakstan, which did throw away the communist rule, the material well-being is still sub-par. And sadly enough, the only thing that common Americans know about this poverty-stricken country is through Borat's eyes! To add insult to injury, the Kazakstan the American cinema-goers see is not even Kazakstan, but another equally poor ex-communist country, Romania.

Anyone who calls America a "Free, God-blessed Land" must be either:
1. delusional
2. bought
3. stupid
Any of the above automatically renders his opinions highly dubious.

Why, even the Holy Father had condemned the recent action of the US.

For the sake of China, I sincerely hope that they are just delusional.

If they are bought, they are just betrayer.

If they are stupid, then the standard of China's Law practitioners comes into question.

If they are delusional, well, let's hope they'll wake up one day.

At least they have not flee the country, I give them that much. I doubt their brand (read, western) of human rights will get much local market though. That's probably why they have time to fly to New York.
