«The CCP have six things as their bottom line issues, namely, Tiananmen, Tibet, Falun Gong, censorship, dissidents, and one-party rule. These are the most serious issues. There are of course problems with the Chinese Christians, the re-education through labor system, the disproportionate amount of capital punishments handed out, torture, hukou, border disputes, the one-child policy, pollution, labor issues, or corruption. Now supposed we have a scale to measure political freedom in China, rated from 0 to 100, if China solves all the six major issues listed above, there should be no problem rating China above 60. If more problems are solved, the rating for China will keep move up until perfection, which, I am afraid is not possible within my lifetime.» Stephen
