Free markets bring prosperity. Democratic representative republics like America generally have free markets, though our nation is moving away from them at the moment. Other forms of governments can have them to a degree as well, like China.
----------You just do not have clue one, do you?
Of course he doesn't have a clue. Notice that when he is asked a direct question he veers away or as we call it, china-bot style. Anyway what can you expect from an oppressed bot's knowledge about democracy?
It is not that.
If the Chinese is as aggressive as the Soviet Union then I think all the Chinese bashing will not appear as much on here or media. COmpare to that, current China is very peaceful
Also, MRAP, methinks you're confusing Athens with Sparta. While Athens did have slaves (notably, some of the police were), they were nowhere NEAR 90% of the population. Even Sparta didn't have those percentages - nowhere NEAR them. And being a slave in ancient Sparta (well at least after the reforms) was confusing anyways, as it was the Spartans who were forbidden from engaging in mercantile activity, most farming and building activities etc, not the slaves. The Spartans ONLY could engage in war.
Try again, and stop reading Chicom version of history.
So it has nothing to do with China's bullying, their political repression of their own people, their institional discrimination against non-Han minorities, their ethnic cleansing attempt in Tibet, the thousands of missiles aimed at Taiwan, or their asshatted claims of sovereignty over the entire South China Sea. No, the only problem is that we are afraid of them.
Bullying? Chinese bulluying, when applied is heights under US or Western bullying, interventionism and outright blackmail. But the very fact you already cranked the *facts* to cover the basic Chinese scarecrow tells me what I need to know.
