The possibility of China facing a revolution in 2013 is pretty big. This is something that the powers that be in China understand more than anyone else. It’s a pity that international society still does not understand this and has still not prepared. America should immediately start moving from dealing with China’s powers that be to dealing with the Chinese people. It definitely won’t be like 1989.
China is at a stage where it has to change. We’re already at a crucial historic moment. Whether it’s civilized or government-driven, and potentially violent, a transformation is inevitable.
