Totally agree! Thumbs%20Up The dysgenic administrative, social and business super-structures that we have build today help keep the ever more corrupt and wealthy people in high positions.  These systems must be destroyed and burned to the ground but the end result of it and what the revolutionaries wish to achieve must be carefully planned and coordinated in advance, or else it will breed something worse that what we already have.

Honestly though, it has reached such a point that to watch it crumble(from a safe distance) is just a matter of time rather than doubting its occurrence. Burn baby burn!
Well said indeed.Clap

only huge amounts of blood letting in the short term as without the rule of law, force rules and as such anarchy can not last but will be replaced by Warlords (as force rules and eventually someone would be powerful enough to act as a government) who will establish "order" by force.

So you are not advocating anarchy, but dictatorship by people you agree with?

The only service anarchy may provide is to act like a wild fire to burn away a corrupt society, and it would have to be VERY corrupt for it to be beneficial.

I favor anarchy... but who will replace the Communist Party? Who will organize millions of Chinese to revolt? How would they be motivated, since most of Chinese are used to government oppression? Who will enforce the new leaders? This is like French Revolution to me... and I most definitely do not want Chinese Napoleon to take over.

If it's anarchy, there won't be any leaders. That's rather the point.

Anarchy will happen only when the Chinese become very, very angry. Even then it'll probably be snuffed out by the military in a matter of moments.
