Emil I Mondoa

China has beat out the West in Africa. The West props dictators and their families

China props up dictators too, but by helping to develop infrastructure and ameliorate poverty, they do not invite the wrath of the people.

That, after all, is the same formula that has worked so far in China: economic liberalism and very little political freedom. People will compromise their political freedoms when they are doing OK economically. Watch out when they have nothing to lose.
