Dream on. I read a story about the late Sen. Patrick Moynihan being very critical of CIA for with all the resources they still seem to get everything wrong. With all the knowledge of Analect and Daodejing you seem still totally lost on China. The Chinese government is not bent on destroying Bo for his policies of anticorruption and revival of some Maoism, they very much want to keep his policies on building low income housing and fighting corruption. The red songs meant different thing for Chinese than you precisely because you still do not get it, for them it means away from Capitalism inequality and back to some form of egalitarianism. Although Bo overplayed his hand and abused his power, he should have resigned gracefully when his family scandal caused embarrassment for the country, he would have been allowed to retire than a trial he forced on.
