When comrade Marx developed and spread his ideas of a wonderful communist, shared world, he hoped that the men who implemented them would not subdue to one of the most irresistible and naturally occurring characteristics of our kind: ambition.Today, China has become “the government of the rich, for the rich and by the rich”(Truth Out).
After studying the roots of the existing social tension and disorder in the country, which remains unattended by the nation’s “absurdly-wealthy” runners, this is just crystal clear. During the last year, China has become the world’s new billionaire factory, producing more tycoons than any other country. Nevertheless, with the delicate state of the economy, the most powerful among the Chinese citizens have become particularly urged to flee from their home country. Among these powerful personalities, at least one third have foreign visas or passports, the rest are planning on getting them and almost all of them send their kids abroad.
If we summarized the current state of affairs in modern China, this should not be surprising at all. Their economy is on the verge of collapse. Their pollution levels are absurdly high. Corruption cases on a daily basis. Their core-periphery effects are strong. Etcetera.
Could it be that George Orwell’s Animal Farm not only came true in China, but that the truth is so bitter that the “Napoleons” who rule the country cannot stand it anymore? Because the answer is so obvious, I’ll just spice things up by responding with one last rhetorical question: why would the people who sucked the life out of a country want to stay in it? Maybe they are just counting on the “Boxer”s (a.k.a. migrant workers and the rest of the working classes), hoping that they will fix the mess they made.
