A centralized government that controls everything in its state has quite a few advantages when it wants to do something. It doesn't have to ask anyone, because it just does it. Now, couple that with the fact that China is a communist state; meaning it can basically do whatever it wants within its boundaries, and no one can stop them. Still, the world has a problem when large nation states engage in human rights violations attacking their own people.

Of course, the United States middle class can only buy so much, and if China wants to continue to expand they will have to sell the same amount of products they sell to the United States to the European Union.

Indeed, the European Union consumer is much different than the US consumer and they don't much take kindly to human rights violations such as what's going on in burma adventure tours, Tibet and other disputed border areas. There is really no reason for China to go out of its way to treat its people like that, and if it wants to keep the consumers of the world happy and buying their products then they are going to have to disengage in this sort of unethical, immoral, and un-humanitarian actions.

It is quite obvious that China really doesn't care, and perhaps we should understand this considering they are a communist nation, and communist nations have obviously, been challenged with ethical behavior in the past. This is because as the government gets too big, or its resources stretched so thin it no longer needs its own people, or it cannot afford to cover all the promises that it has purported to the people.

Nevertheless, if China wants to continue to be in route to becoming a world superpower, that China needs to grow up. Please consider all this. Not long ago, I mentioned this to Guang Wu, the author of a new book; "China: Has the Last Opportunity Passed by!?" and he indicated that the perception of China by the outside world is often much different than the perception from within China.
