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)
:
blogs.wsj.com...

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 www.theatlantic.com... (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?

if anyone can do it he can .. there will be alot of improvements to china with xi running things ... find it rather ironic ... china becoming more open and free while america becomes more and more a totalitarian state... met xi
twice as brother in law does business with him ... from what saw and heard he impressed me and usually am not impressed by most people that meet..

I believe world power is shifting. As some know, Rome, England and the US are all part of a system. England is the financial district, Rome info and propaganda and the US is the World Police. Now the latter, is about to be replaced. With who? China. Why do you think we give them so much money? It's been a long time coming. Englans and China have been bed buddied for a long time. And since 2005 China and Italy have been in close military relations.

Oddly enough I have been thinking about this since I read that a showing of the film V for Vendetta was shown on TV over there not so long ago and I wondered, if there is to be a one world government/bank/army NWO kind of a set up, it would have to include everyone, not just all the western countries. In order to do that, everyone needs to be on the same playing field. Now getting a non-communistic country to be fully communistic is going to be really difficult and take a lot of time. However, say you bring both ends of the spectrum into the middle, where non-communistic countries become a bit more communistic and under a kind of marshal law and the fully communistic countries get a little more freedom but are still under a kind of marshal law. This would then be the perfect base in which to usher in the NWO, and would make sense as to what I see happening in USA and UK (see talks by Brian Gerrish on Common Purpose and how they are trying to change our society and way of thinking) and places like China.

What do you think? Do you think that is possibly what is going on here?

Makes sense. Actually, there isn't much more to assimilate. The North American Union is on it's way. The EU, African Union and Asian Union is all up and running already. Now they just need to join all those parts together and voila.

Yeah exactly. Just need the final lock down and take over of the middle east and then it is appoint the NWO council time, who most likely will be chosen puppets and still run from behind the curtain by those who are in charge now.

It's getting even bigger.

A Chinese newspaper is saying that the government should 'respect' the media because the era of 'big trumpets' (referring to one uniform message that is 'broadcast' to everyone by the government) is gone.

I don't see any reason why China would need some diabolical plan in order to change. I doubt this has anything to do with any NWO

China grew up fast, like... really fast. They stepped on a few (hundred million) toes along the way. The ends may not have justified the means but the ends will now give them the ability to address some of those means.

They are tied in globally now. There is no future without China unless we change the coarse we are on. China knows their future within in its own boarders is going to be dicey and turbulent if they don't start making nice with the nations people and let them feel like they have a life and some choices under this new power house.

There is no reason why they cant take the shackles off now. being hard-lined is what got them so big so fast but now to continue they need proud citizens who want to be part of a great country not just a cold calculating power house.

I read the article last week and meant to put it up on ATS, but kept forgetting:

Yes, xinhua is criticising censorship.

My personal feeling on this is that as China continues on their path of economic might, global influence, and internet growth. The youth generation will work their way up to government leadership roles and rid China of the old guard CCP. It won't be overnight and it won't be easy but all the 'signs' are starting to appear.

Now if they only understood that localization > centralization.
