State-controlled media portray China's leaders as living by the austere Communist values they publicly espouse. But as scions of the political aristocracy carve out lucrative roles in business and embrace the trappings of wealth, their increasingly high profile is raising uncomfortable questions for a party that justifies its monopoly on power by pointing to its origins as a movement of workers and peasants.

All animals are created equal; some are just more equal than others.
From the article:
“One evening early this year, a red Ferrari pulled up at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Beijing, and the son of one of China’s top leaders stepped out, dressed in a tuxedo.
Grandfather, Bo Yibo Helped lead Mao’s forces to victory, only to be purged in the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution. Subsequently rehabilitated.
Son, Bo Guagua Graduate student at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
Father, Bo Xilai Party secretary of Chongqing and Politburo member, likely to rise to the Politburo standing committee in 2012.
Bo Guagua, 23, was expected. He had a dinner appointment with a daughter of the then-ambassador, Jon Huntsman.”
So, Jon Huntsman’s daughter dined with a princeling? No wonder Jon Huntsman favors China so much.
Have to admit Huntsman daughters are hot..., Nevertheless, you are correct Sir! Another reason not to ever vote for Huntsman.
lol. They had their own stimulus too, empty cities.
Wow, I sure remember that picture and the movie!
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
Huntsman has been a competent Ambassador to China.
Such person will be invaluable to the next administration.
We’ve changed their names from communists to “tehnocrats” in the p.c. manual. Git it right! ;)
Well, China got where it is by declaring wealthiness to be glorious. This “commu-capitalism” raised their fortunes while most other communist regimes bit the dust out of bankruptcy. Why should the Chinese people get all bent out of shape when the glory is shared? Oh wait, it isn’t being shared “equally.” Fine with me if China wants to cripple itself by being more purist about its communism.
They a friggin communists! That’s what it’s about! Being in charge and living ff the backs of the people! Duh! What they think it’s about everyone being equal? That’s for stupid college kids to believe.
