Communist China is Falling Down...Falling Down...Falling Down

From Yahoo News. This is Step 1.

"A group of eminent Chinese Communist Party elders has issued a bold call to end the country's wide-ranging restrictions on free speech, just days after the government reacted angrily to the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to imprisoned dissident Liu Xiaobo.

In an open letter posted online, the retired officials state that although China's 1982 constitution guarantees freedom of speech, the right is constrained by a host of laws and regulations that should be scrapped."


"China implements overlapping and usually unwritten rules and regulations on what can or cannot be published, but the final call is made by the Communist Party's shadowy Central Propaganda Department. Members of the department regularly notify editors about what topics are taboo, usually by telephone to avoid leaving a paper trail, with the list changing constantly depending on events.

The letter described the department as an "invisible black hand" and questioned what right it had to override both the government and the premier."


"Members of the group have signed other letters in the past, including one addressed to the Beijing leadership in early 2009 that voiced support for the government's $586 billion economic stimulus package but warned that without transparency it could be frittered away by corrupt officials."

When communist officials start getting uppity, things have begun that cannot be undone. And to think all it took was a Nobel Peace Prize...

Like Raul Castro, the newest Kim Jong will also loosen the reins of power on his citizens, and eventually China will soon crumble as the largest communist nation on earth.
