China's Worthless Stooges
By John E. Carey

In the case of the food safety controversy, why would a seemingly high
but certainly not elite member of the communist party and government
bureaucracy say something in public that was so patently wrong? Why
would a member of the government of China make a statement so
obviously wrong that journalists like me laughed at the red meat
provided by such a preposterous statement?
I thought I knew the answers but many others helped out by sending me
email. Several sources are British, European or American expatriates
living and working inside China so it is better not to disclose their
One asked, "Don't you know that this is an indictment of communism and
the communist system everywhere? When jobs are doled out because of
party loyalty instead of experience and competence, you end up with
the village idiot running the local government."
I did know. And in my email back to this Brit Expat (he won't mind my
slang) I said, the tiers of government starting just below the elite
that run China are filled with "worthless stooges."
My friend agreed wholeheartedly.
We have a worthless stooge living in the White House now. You don't
need to point fingers at China
The argument is that many of the people in power just below the elite
tier got their jobs just for being loyal and that many of them are
extremely incompetent. Could this perhaps be part of the reason China
has so much trouble with corruption and lack of rule of law?
Corruption and bribery were part of Chinese life for thousands of
years. Old habits die hard and slow. China had of rule of law way
before the western nations.
