I’ve been out of the loop for a bit lately, the real world has been calling.  Terri makes a great point that this is an important article to understand:

A veteran Chinese intelligence officer who defected to the United States says that his country’s civilian spy service spends most of its time trying to steal secrets overseas but also works to bolster Beijing’s Communist Party rule by repressing religious and political dissent internally.

    Of course. The journal article is excellent. This is information people outside of China especially need to be aware of: China is sending over spies not just against government targets but against even commercial and academic industries. (And who knows where else.)

    Their system is not based on free competition. How do you produce excellence without open competition?

    Simple. They cheat.

    Same as any other totalitarian country.

    First, they robbed from their own people and survived. (They still do this, of course.) Then, they focus on trying to cheat and steal from everyone else.

    Wouldn’t you think all of that great energy could be better used in bettering their own country and industry?

    Can’t the Chinese compete with the West without cheating?

    Unfortunately, not in a totalitarian system where it is “who you know” and not “what you do” which gives rewards to those that might consider striving for success. In anything.

    They do well when they increase the ability for businesses there to thrive, but the success is tenuous and the government officials feed far too much upon it. Others see these things and say, “Why try? The government will just take my success and give it to whom they want then label me a counter-revolutionary.”
