Why are people surprised when a Communist country acts like a Communist country?

Image is everything, nothing will get in the way of presenting a good image to the world. Nothing they have done in the last 2 weeks has surprised me.

CLH

Well, no. No one is surprised. But we're also not complacent.

Mark Triplett

Agreed!

I was just responding to the news of the last couple of weeks. It has just struck me that reporters are just stunned that China is acting just like the old Soviet Union in its treatment of the press and in the rights to worship & protest.

CLH

Oh! Yes, true. "What? We're not in KS anymore?" Sigh.
