I know I've posted in another thread that I doubt Xi's ability and intentions. Now I no longer doubt the latter.
I was looking for an English source, and the first one that popped up actually summarised the situation quite well (amazing by the Western media's
standards, I must say)
So far, Xi has:
-Implied the abolition of re-education through labor (www.merit-times.com.tw...
-Ordered a change in military corruption www.abovetopsecret.com...
-Arrested lots of corrupt government officials
-Allowed the Nanfang Zhoumo (Southern Weekend) to protest
(usually, only Hongkongers can protest media
censorship. In the mainland, the protests would either be resolved somehow, through violent or non-violent means, or covered up.)
-I've also heard that Xi allowed the government to investigate corruption by his family members.
What do you think? Do you think Xi wants to introduce mass reforms? If so, do you think the reforms will succeed, meet the same end as Gorbachev's, or
in the womb?
