If the Party is one the encouraging the Confucian revival, I wonder just how genuinely "Confucian" it actually will be. Perhaps they'll try to insert themselves as a "parental" figure in the lives of the Chinese people---a sort of Orwell meets Confucius?

Crushing peaceful,civil opposition with strength of arms for the world to watch, is incredible enough, without the on-going official denials. Hypocritical in light of the demands being made by the Party that Japan discontinue its historical revisionism. The Mandate of Heaven is not a guaranteed condition. Totalitarianism may, unfortunately, be more long-lived, especially when it has been the order of the day for the past several thousand years, in one form or another.
