Also, China is heading both for a major economic collapse and a ferocious civil war that will kill millions. No doubt this will be regarded as a small, small price to pay. Anti-Communists have always regarded the deaths of millions in their crusade with great self-satisfaction.
So did Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Mao, anyone caring more for an ideology or belief over people. That has plagued humanity.
Absolutely. Pinning inhumanity and brutality on just one side is both profoundly ignorant of history and, for lack of a better term, partisan. The ruthless, sometimes savage totalitarian and collectivist regimes of the 20th century that ruled over their people with the sword and the secret police hardly have a better track record of civilization and respect for mankind than the unbridled free market.
