    Fascinating. Could the potential impact of this influx of ambitious, hardworking individuals seeking a better life be analogous to those of the waves of immigration from Europe?

      These people destroyed their own country. I don’t see how letting them come here is going to help us at all.

        I think the thrust of the post is that they are escaping the people who rule there.

        Expatriate Chinese are famous for two things – being hardworking and prosperous, and being Christian.

    The writer of this piece might acquaint himself with the well-documented phenomenon of the Chinese naked officials if he wants to understand what empells these fleeing millions. It’s not what he thinks.

    So… socialist-designed mega-cities do not have all that much appeal?

    Didn’t anyone here actually travel in Eastern Europe in the early 90’s or before?

    Travel is a broadening experience. There’s nothing like actually seeing the results of socialism to tell you what you need to know about it.
