The conventional wisdom is that the CCP has allowed increased economic freedom while managing to keep a tight rein on political freedom. Conservative and libertarian political theory says that can't last, and that sooner or later free markets are going to make people want to be completely, politically free. If even half of what Day is claiming is true, the Communists in China may be staring into their future and getting a real good look at the ash heap of history. It could make Tienanmen Square look like small potatoes...or like the opening shots in the Fourth Revolution that finally brings freedom to China after nearly a century of chaos and tyranny. We can hope.
