Protests in China will end up like protests in Russia, like protests in Iran, etc. They only cement authoritarian regimes & seal off the system of government from top down. Real change does not come from the masses, but from the top, when the system can no longer be kept afloat.

This is very true.

Exactly. Many in the West practically declared victory because a few thousand or even tens of thousands came out in protest. It's absurd. This type of wishful thinking breeds complacency. We don't need complacency. We need the opposite, we need action
 
And the population is not armed against the Tyranny.

So in an eternal chicken and egg question you go with the chicken. Classy! You get paid to come out with such wisdom?

Top down approach has been the approach of west inside and outside their country (Hilary Clinton remarks regarding republican)... But for foreigner, it's most vicious. It creates a section of narcissistic self-righteous bunch who wants to push their idea on masses

Sadly, you are delivering a just too accurate description of the state of "the West"

The French would disagree...

Now Putin is calling Xi, P. I said that the Americans will organize a color revolution in your country. Xi. But how, when we control everything? P. Comrade self-hypnosis. Xi. Oh f..., we didn't anticipate that.
 
I agree. The protests will lead to more, not less, repression. And that is not only bad news for the Chinese, but also for the West, because part of domestic repression is an aggressive narative of ultra-nationalism and anti-Westernism

What exactly happened to shah in Iran? And to Mubarak and Yanukovich?
 
 
In reply to @vtchakarova
Protesting is not enough. They need to take up arms and fight for their freedom.

EU is sorted in this matter...they simply do what US ask them to do. No revolution needed.

No. The three countries have known phenomenal growth in the past 25 years. In all spheres. West is using its last weapon, Propaganda, to slow them down, maybe even get a 鈥漴egime change鈥 with some luck. Not happening. This is what鈥檚 going on in China 馃憞

The difference btw China and Russia in this rgd is that Russia can afford to ignore popular opinion, due to mafia-style extractive govt and O&G exports; China has a social contract, and as much as the state leaches on the laobaixing, it needs their real compliance.

What are the LEVERAGE ratio for China鈥檚 & USA鈥檚 financial systems, as well as FTX? The FTX drama serves as a great blueprint for what to expect next for the one with the highest leverage ratio. pic.twitter.com/lwGV4Bstzq

Does not work for Sri Lanka or Tunisia.

Key is protests need to cross the point of no return for the regime. Such protests often become violent due to state crackdown & change generally happens after bloodshed. No dictatorship can ever be ousted if people/rivals don鈥檛 push them out.

Interesting, thinking out loud. For the top to change they need to fear the people more than the leader / system so would without people pressure it is unlikely to change. Or if the security services / police fear the people more than the regime then could thid lead to change?

Well we will see - people want freedom and the pundits and academics were surprised 馃槷 in 1989 and in 1991 and now 鈥#freedomworks

true and it should reinforce to those us in free democratic countries how lucky we are.
 
In reply to @vtchakarova
Now, we will see economic boom in Chinese rural areas and some sort of Western-like protests in the big cities, which are dependent on orders from Western customers. It is a little bit unfair to blame Chinese government for the falling purchasing power in the West
