(China's a wonderful, diverse, inventive, rich commercial civilization with high art and great food--and a feudal past, just like ours, and an imperial history, just like ours, and huge extremes of weath and povery, just like we have. Except many thousands of years older, and with billions of people, not millions.) Read more about OK, I give. We're fucking doomed

General Wes Clark writes in The Independent:
