What on earth does Jackie Chan know about government? Hey Mr. Chan - stick to making movies, you idiot, and let intelligent people handle issues of government..

I agree. Chan should stick to movie's.
Notice how all those business leaders applauded him. I thought business leaders were supposed to be all about capitalism and freedom. They're applauding because China isn't really communist anymore, it's capitalist and is only called communist because the only legal political party is called communist. People don't have any real freedom. The businesses love that. They can exploit the workers all they want, long hours with long wages, poor working conditions. They can neglect the environment and they can ignore consumer product safety. And they don't have to worry about being held accountable because the Chinese people can't vote a different party into power to make changes.
I have a feeling that if China ever did get real democracy the people would actually vote in a government that adds more economic restrictions, not less. Lenin was wrong about the whole "vanguard party" concept leading the masses to a classless society. You give a select group of people power they will use it for themselves. Real change will only come when the people have power, and are willing to use it. That is true in China, true in America, and true everywhere else.
