India Gets It














When it comes to the pirates, India gets it. The INS Tabar sunk the pirate "mother ship" in the Gulf of Aden. Go India. 

Thank you for reading this blog.

Hey Right Guy, you copying the format of Libertarian Republican blog?

Seriously, looks good. Nice and clean look. That's what I like for blogs. Good content.

I see nuestro amigo Hector is here.

Hector:
I agree with you. In fact, I will say that India stands a better chance of being the world super power as opposed to China because they have more freedoms. China has every advantage but freedoms, and in the end, if they do not lose the shackles of communism, they will eventually implode from the turmoil and discontent.

Eric:
Thank you for your assessment. Yeah, someone gave me some tips to follow and I did. Hector stops by from time to time and delivers a few good points as usual.

Thank you both.

Eric,
This format is among the few included in Blogspot that look good, my blog also has it.

Right Guy,
Yes, I'd say India and Australia are the best candidates to be the next superpower, because they have more freedoms (both economic and civil).
I also think that China is slowly moving away from communism. I think they are now more fascist than commies. And I think that is because they have a larger middle class, and the middle class is against communism (although not against keynesianism/socialdemocratic policies). I expect China to become something like a liberal democracy in the next 50 years, assuming they keep growing as fast as they are, and assuming they don't go fighting wars against liberal democracies...

Hector:
The problem is the ruling party in china does not want to give up control. It's still very totalitarian in china, and a place you could hardly call free. Sure there is a growing middle class, but going from nothing to something can be remarkable. When you look at China's moves in Tibet, and around the borders of India Shows it means business internally. Australia's problem is that they have such a burden with their socialist system that they will be where England and other European countries are shortly: Out of money and cutting back. THe only thing in their favor is that they don't have a lot of people, but even that is changing as they have a lot of muslim immigrants from various countires (I have a friend that moved there when he married an aussie).

I agree, I wouldn't call China a "free" country. However, I'd call it a "freer that 20 years ago" country. Perhaps they will continue in that direction, until China IS free?
Even if the Communist Party doesn't want to give up, they'll eventually have to, given enough popular pressure... Trust me on this one, we mexicans know about it ;o)

Yeah, but what of the corruption? As bad as some think it is in America, we have better redress than most places and if you call a cop, chances are he's not on someone's payroll. In China, it's a bureaucratic nightmare. Did you know that you have to register for a protest? People have been known to disappear after filling out the paperwork. I wonder if they ask your blood type..."Jeez, we need a liver for comrade Lee. That guy looks good."

Héctor said...

Yes, I bet is that way...
But, again, that can change... Let's hope it does :o)
