Cliques are bad. They are ultimately destructive in their seeking of power. This is a lesson learned time and again. The Mainland has evolved compared to the diaspora which is still stuck in Ming/Qing mindset. Get rich, dont worry about government.

The Chinese Tocqueville, or how Xi is trying to stop the Westernized decay of Chinese society.

Quote

(...)
Either way, our world is witnessing a grand experiment that’s now underway: China and the West, facing very similar societal problems, have now, thanks to Wang Huning, embarked on radically different approaches to addressing them. And with China increasingly challenging the United States for a position of global geopolitical and ideological leadership, the conclusion of this experiment could very well shape the global future of governance for the century ahead.

Simon, Were you aware of Wang Huning?

He probably will not be the Mainland Lee Kuan Yew, as he has not executive duties, but he has been performed a same role of ideologue, using a LKY-like mentality, for the last three PRC head honchos.

Can't remember which topic was banging on most about China demographics, but there is an interesting visualisation here, based on an alternative estimation method compared to that used by the UN.

Nigeria having the second largest population in the world raises an eyebrow - it would mean about double the density of  that of England.
