My Starbucks: Dalian, China

Pomfret’s China in the Washington Post has a decidedly unconventional view of the evolution of politics in China since the days of Sun-Yat-Sen which ended in 1925 in this article!

It did feel a tad surreal reading this on my  ‘puter in Dalian, China this morning without interruption from China’s Internet Nanny. They may still be celebrating Labor Day May 1 or just be otherwise engaged!

Update 9/8/21: My Chinese friend, W Ming, told me that many chinese believe that they would have been better off, or lived better if Chiang-Kai-Chek had won in 1949 rather than Mao. Chinese would have lived more like the Taiwanese. There is some historical revision going on these days even in China.
