  Modern China: Communist China
China and Russia had for almost three hundred years been mortal and suspicious enemies; the common bond of proletariat revolution could not undo centuries of Russian expansion and imperialism and Chinese suspicion.
The world now had two separate communist superpowers pursuing radically different courses; the immediate effect, however, of the split was to isolate China internationally, for it now had no friends in the world.
China benefitted in other ways as well: the détente allowed China to import airplanes, technology, and other products; this, more than anything else, led to rapid modernization in the late 1970's and 1980's.

 China
Communist China (as it is still anachronistically called) has adopted a model that is basically the best of two worlds: the political efficiency of the one-party system and the economic efficiency of the market economy.
Communist China enjoys a great advantage: a meek, peaceful population, educated over the centuries to believe both in superstition and in the government (which is supposed to come from Heaven).

 History: The Roots of Communist China
The Chinese Communist revolution, and the foreign policy of the regime to which it has given rise, have several roots, each of which is embedded in the past more deeply than one would tend to expect of a movement seemingly so convulsive.
China developed an elaborate and effective political system resting on a remarkable cultural unity, the latter in turn being due mainly to the general acceptance of a common, although difficult, written language and a common set of ethical and social values, known as Confucianism.
These bases existed mainly by virtue of the efforts of the local Communist leadership to satisfy the serious economic and social grievances of the local civilians, often violently, through such means as redistribution of land at the expense of landlords and the reduction of interest rates at the expense of moneylenders.

 frontline: china in the red: roundtable: china and the internet | PBS
The Internet's evolution in China is in many ways a microcosm of the sweeping economic changes initiated 25 years ago by Deng Xiaoping, which were designed to liberalize China's markets and open them to the world.
Even as China's entrepreneurs leap onto the Internet, the government is developing some of the world's most sophisticated filtering technologies to control speech and access, and is cracking down on various forms of online "subversion," imprisoning pro-democracy advocates who have used the Internet for political purposes.
According to BusinessWeek, China is "poised to move up the technology ladder at a pace unprecedented among nations," and is on track, Amnesty International reports, to have the world's largest population of Internet users in four years.

 The American Spectator
The Information Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China issued a report on March 9 entitled "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2005." This is a yearly ritual conducted by Beijing in response to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices released annually by the United States.
This points clearly to the disingenuousness of China's State Council and is indicative of their report as a whole.
Such an international order would give the communist leadership of China the freedom to limit liberty at home, re-create 1989's Tiananmen Square massacre at will, seize Taiwan by any means possible, and continue to advance its strongest relationships with the most repressive and anti-American regimes on Earth.
