China’s Communist / Capitalist Hybrid - “Market Stalinism”

America is truly unique in that we were the first Nation where the Founding Law was structured specifically to allow the entrepreneur to thrive. Good or bad, man was finally given the opportunity for his mind to be free to create whatever he wanted in a unique environment (U.S.A.) that guaranteed his liberties. With this new freedom came an initiative for man to create things he never had sufficient reward to create in the past. From this new initiative came an explosion of progress, technology, and life as we now know it.

On this note, has anyone seen this article in this month’s Rolling Stone, “China’s All Seeing Eye” ?? Here is the link:

This article discusses a major issue we are dealing with right now which is the gradual erosion of our liberties, i.e. freedoms that we were guaranteed by the Founding Laws of this Nation. With the actions taken by Homeland Security in recent years, I can see that what is happening in China is also beginning to take place here in the U.S. and ultimately our citizenry will be convinced by the media that it’s a good idea. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The end goal is to use the latest people-tracking technology — thoughtfully supplied by American giants like IBM, Honeywell and General Electric — to create an airtight consumer cocoon: a place where Visa cards, Adidas sneakers, China Mobile cellphones, McDonald's Happy Meals, Tsingtao beer and UPS delivery (to name just a few of the official sponsors of the Beijing Olympics) can be enjoyed under the unblinking eye of the state, without the threat of democracy breaking out.

Please take a look at this article and comment on it. What will be the result if one or more of our cities hosts such an ‘experiment in control’ ??
