How Deng Xiaoping Helped Create a Corrupt China -

This is a long but well written and insightful article by Bao Tong, who was at the centre of China's politics in the eventful 80s and 90s.
I remember the historic events he talks about -- like Tiananmen June 4, 1989 and Deng Xiaoping's "Southern Tour" in 1992 -- For I was in China at the time.
This is a depressing read, but likely a correct analysis -- China's corruption is not going to be brought under control anytime soon; and crackdowns on dissent of any kind are going to get more draconian.
