In China, no money means no treatment

From Chicago Tribune, via The State: “In China, it is survival of the fittest. It is a striking fact never addressed by the communist leadership that some of the biggest social problems facing China today–the big gap between rich and poor, the exploitation of peasants–are the same type of woes that led to the revolution of 1949.

The sense of enforced community that came with Chairman Mao’s era is long gone, replaced by a burgeoning free-market economic system that rewards hard work but is not developed enough to offer protection to those who are vulnerable. ”
