Stating the obvious...

"China is populated and governed by humans,
their political leaders act in their own, their party's and their government's interest just like all the others.

...isn't really necessary, is it emu? ...


On the contrary. There's nothing wrong with a reminder that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Ooooh I do like that one !!!!

Gandhi, what a great little man he was..


There was also the remark attributed to him, when asked about "Western Civilisation" he replied that he thought it would be a good idea (if they implemented it !)

Definitely a witty chap, that Ghandi.

It's  how the word "d e m o c r a c y" causes a post delay.

Someone's afraid of that word ?

Agreed.
#1 Sure, this is a world where you can't take everything to heart!
#2 Yep, but also be more open and honest about the failings too. This gives transparency and once that's achieved, what can they accuse you of and what can they do to hurt you?
#3 Two wrongs never made a right and if you descend to their level, you become no better than them!
Just trying to be the voice of reason here folks, peace y'all!
