, from certain srecous many of the claims made sound like the usual denial that the source of any social pollution could be China itself. What I mean in terms of navel gazing and reform is that China today would be full-stop unrecognizable to its 30 years ago self. In any of the aspects you list, there have been many reforms. With respect to the party's role, that there is still one-party rule does not mean that there has been no change in the way that party operates internally. Having said this, if one wants to make the claim that there has been no substantive change since Mao's passing, then that is only sustainable in the face of the continued power of the party. In terms of failing to address its own history, I guess what you mean is that it has failed to address its past to the satisfaction of those who would like to see it gone. Fair enough, but as anyone living in China will attest, crossing the stream groping for stones means that things have been changing very rapidly, which is not to say they have changed for the better for everyone. So, to those who enjoy accusing me of being pro-China, not quilty. I'm more pro evidence than anything.
