It's all about the status quo. I think that is an under-rated concept. I have been thinking about the term 'conformity' recently and have decided that our country has implemented a system that successfully incites conformity. The trick is in creating a ton of social cliques, if one doesn't work for you, there is another that may exist.....for me, an inherently paranoid individual, it was a conspiracy site on the internet.

The status quo in China is a bit harsher and relies on, imo, less evolved techniques. There is obvious disatisfaction amongst the civilization, if I understand correctly, and that will lead to civil unrest that may or may not have been avoided..........

The dissatisfaction among the population is over-rated to say the least. The fact of the matter is, even among the rural poor, the situation has largely being improving.

Heck, China now has a labour shortage with employees in cities like Guangzhou being able to pick and choose.
