Yes, Mr CCP (and all your loyal army of fenqing trolls), I'm talking to you.
Democratic reform will come to China, one day. With or without you. Trying to hold back the process indefinitely is futile. And it makes you look FOOLISH. [Ah, you see, the thing about dear old Cnut - often forgotten in retelling of the 'legend' - is that he was perfectly well aware of this, and only made this show of trying to command the tide to demonstrate to his courtiers that he wasn't as omnipotent and infallible as they supposed him to be. That's a lesson the CCP - and its more uncritical enthusiasts - might take on board too.]
