It is so nice to finally realise that China, under its current government and communist regime, has some enormous weaknesses.
This fact is highly obvious if one meta-analyses the fruits of the Chinese government's actions in recent times.
Weakness #1: Chinese communism lacks a moral core.
This weakness is probably the most obvious one in the range of weaknesses in the present Chinese system of government. China fails to see this because their version of communism does not contain morality within its core; only a focus on a particular way of organising society. Thus they have to resort to severe means to force round pegs into square holes. The fact that they operate under Maoist communist ideology, means they simply do not notice that the reason the West is so advanced; and the reason Tibet and other nearby countries are so socially advanced, is that they include morality in their system.
Weakness #2: China's government relies on finance for its power and influence.
China has made the assumption that what "talks" in the West is money. In fact it is more than this. The Western world is much more sophisticated and has grown as it is as a result of assimilating many philosophies and ethical bases into its infrastructure. The overall (excluding the current recession) financial success in the history of the West is partly a consequence of this. China has thrown away its opportunity to become enriched from the different cultures within and around its borders by focusing only on communism. It has not learned from history that demonstrates very clearly that cultures that only focus on material wealth will fall eventually. They cannot copy the west by assuming all they need to copy is the ability of the West to handle and use money effectively.
Weakness #3: China's government is blind.
It cannot see the richness of culture that it destroys. It has failed to realise that a socially advanced society is one that encompasses a very broad range of cultures, abilities and forms of expression. It is far too obsessed with Maoist communism to realise that it is massively throwing babies out with proverbial bathwater at every turn it makes. every attempt to "Quash rebellions", every effort it makes to control its neighbours, such as Nepal and India; every political move it makes to try to pretend Tibet or Taiwan are not there.
Weakness #4: They have to rely on aggression to maintain the illusion of control.
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If China only ever relies on aggression, they will need increasing amounts of this to control the reaction. This increase can only be maintained for a finite amount of time. They stop their own citizens getting the full benefits of modern news and internet. Control that needs strength. They manipulate other cultures. More control that saps resources. They force compliance in countries they do not own, like Tibet. More energy and cost to their overall development.
Soon enough these failures will cause splits. They already are creating great cracks under the veneer of apparent superiority of the "school bully" in the world's playground, the Chinese Communist government.
China is not even China any more. The old, rich, deep culture that China once represented has been destroyed by Maoist communist tendencies. The time for change will happen very soon and a new rule build on sound philosophical principles, intelligence and, above all, wisdom, will take its place and China will finally become China again. China will earn respect in the world simply for being itself instead of buying and manipulating the world as it does now.
