China, whatever its geopolitical rise, is so flawed as a communist system as to be a hopeless contradiction…the US could, however seemingly imaginary the possibility, lead the way through the crisis planetary destruction by creating a path to postcapitalism…Our DMNC model, however up in the air, is concrete enough to suggest a way, one that doesn’t get stuck in the muddle of chinese political idiocy (but the chinese could take the same path with its own version done right…)

The importance of this cannot be overemphasized. It is, quite possibly, life-and-death for the planet… Mark Twain once commented, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”
