You are talking about something that happend in 1850! A
complete differnt china to the china today. Yes, of course
it could happen again, but then with that logic, another american
civil war, that just so happend in 1851.
Yes, a completely different China. All the trade went through powerful cities on the coast, while the interior was impoverished and agrarian. Beijing was supposedly the center of the government, but the provinces were ruled by corrupt officials. Completely different.
Again! What government is not currupt? Even in England a little
while back, mp,s were sacked and even sent to prison for stealing
money. Its everywhere im afraid. And then governments are corrupt
in other ways starting pointless wars, killing thousands. Deal with it, the
world is pretty much run by people who crave power, money, and control.
