I recently watched this very interesting TED talk from a Berkley educated communist apologist. I highly recommend this video:
While I don't agree with his assertion that China's system is the best on earth, it is very interesting to get a peek inside their political system to understand their perspective and world view. It once again reiterates to me the marvel of America's existence, the miracle of our system, and the gratitude we should have for the rights and liberties we enjoy here.
However, I do concur with his assessment that American-style democracy is not right for everyone. Our system came into being for very different reasons than other nation's systems. Compelling our system on other nations who are not prepared for the responsibility that comes with it is an exercise in futility.
