People Aren't Content With a Little Bit of Openness

As the recent riot in China shows. People are upset about a cover-up in the murder of a young girl, but they were already upset about being shoved around by China's ham-fisted top-down development projects. The Chinese government is realizing that you can't expect people with a taste of economic success and increased access to information to put up with this treatment. IF IT'S BAD FOR THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT, IT'S GOOD FOR EVERYONE ELSE.
