One of the consequences of introducing democracy in a former
police state is the upsurge of organized crime. I fail to see
how anyone can spot the hand of Russian President behind each
and every attempt on somebody's life.
By the same logic the assassination of Swedish prime minister
Olof Palme could have been ascribed to Ronald Reagan, since
Palme was a harsh critic of the US, and the police investigation
was suspiciously inefficient.
It may be out-of-date to believe in the ideals of the World
Federalist Movement ( WFM ), the US branch of which is Citizens
for Global Solutions ( CGS ). Yet, I have no problem with that,
since in my view their noble ideals are not tainted by the
apparent bureaucracy of the UN organization.
People who scream for Democracy Now in China must assume full
responsibility for the ensuing power of the criminal triads.
I doubt that corrupt politicians in the pay of their local
mafias will be doing a better job than the 'gang of engineers'
currently moving the Middle Kingdom into the future.
