I have to admit your ability to write long responses, with very little quantification is paramount.

I actually enjoy a discussing with people on different points, and I prefer that they disagree as long as they can back up their argument. Just because something is stated doesn't make it true, there has to be a quantification against existing evidence based on facts understood under context of the history of that time, not just an iconic explanation of the ideal.

Using a recursive argument does not justify your avowal, just because in one point I admit a true statement presented by you, it does not mean that your conclusion is correct since it denies the reality of the reason for its success.

Amazing how can you stand there and say that they lived better under murderer Mao, that is just denying basic history. If he was loved so much, why was his wife put under house arrest after his demise until her death?

I may not be living under the best government in the world, but it's still better than anything China can bring to the table. To quote Winston Churchill "Democracy is the worst form of government I know, but I've found nothing better". Yes I still believe I'm leaving in a democracy, and everyone should be thankful for the opportunity given to them to become what they wish.

You keep going back to the 400 individuals, 140 countries, etc. Provide quantifiable proof, not some conspiracy theory. Just because you say it doesn't make it true.

Let me tell you what I know about the communist system... I lived under that oppressive, regressive, social terrorist, slave master, bourgeois state. I can speak on the subject matter from firsthand experience, unlike many who have only seen it through the pages of a book. Which is what you sound like, since you cannot use one historical reference to quantify your statements.

You didn't explain why my rule of judging a country by its immigration pattern is wrong, your argument makes no sense.

It sounds like you're not aware that the majority of Chinese immigration is illegal. The US ruling class has nothing to do with their wish to leave their homeland, but it has everything to do with them wishing to leave the slave system in their country.

The worldwide crisis DID NOT start in the banking system, they just took advantage of the existing trading practices to exploit it. The worldwide crisis started in the halls of governments, from the US, to Europe, to China, to Asia. All these governments wished to sustain social equality via different programs, and it became a house of cards that fell upon itself. In the US it was the underwriting of bad loans by Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. Europe was the un-sustainability of the Socialist programs of many of the member countries. China was on due to their greed, and growth at all cost. Know your facts.
