Send in the capitalist exploiters!

Jiang's rebranding of the Communist Party had some encouraging points, though the anecdote about the two women who were dragged off after they threw up hundreds of pamphlets in the air protesting something or other (we don't know because the guards picked up every single one before the public could get to them) highlights the Let 100 Flowers Bloom And Then Pluck 99 policy that will continue to govern any move towards capitalism in China. It is slightly refreshing to see a healthy dose of West-bashing, though I'm sure it was way more colorful in Mandarin. (In many ways, the Chinese language is perfectly suited for the requisite inflammatory propagandistic rhetoric of communism.)
