Interesting article and thanks for posting.

Somehow, I have a mixed feeling about it. Will need more time to digest.

“This does not mean, however, that democracy would be an automatic cure. In the unlikely event that China were suddenly to have a peaceful transformation to a liberal democracy, nationalism would not go away. No party seen to be soft on foreign powers, especially Japan and the U.S., would be. Modern Chinese history has been so bloody that the scars will take a long time to heal. Ethnic nationalism can be a kind of poison, especially when it is based on a feeling of victimhood. Political freedom should help to soothe such feelings in the long run, but this will not happen in time for the Beijing Olympics.”

Ian Buruma, the author of 11 books, is a professor at Bard College. His novel "The China Lover" will be published in September.
