    Saw this; what a nightmare.

    The Chinese didn't even get the brief interlude of moderation America enjoyed from roughly the end of WWII through the early 1970s - you know, we had neat cars, but traffic was not bad and in most areas the roads were wide open; decent-paying jobs were abundant and the working/middle classes, while not affluent, were able to enjoy a quality of life (and a pace of life) that just doesn't exist anymore.

    For the Chinese, it was 1900; then all of a sudden it's 1990. Just like that.

    I wonder whether they think it's worth it?
