If you’re at work, sitting at your desk and still need a wake-up call, try this one on for size:
The IMF now believes that China will surpass the U.S. as The Economic Power by 2016.
China, the land where Nobel Prize winners rot in prison… the country that just arrested “between 20 and 30 followers [of Jesus Christ]” for simply holding an Easter service… the land that doesn’t have to worry about Middle Eastern-style revolts because it controls its citizens’ communications so rigidly.
Yeah. That China.
Is this what we want for ourselves? For the world?
If the answer is no, then we need to start thinking about the future, cutting our budget and taking elections seriously. Now!
