The Chinese government is encouraging its citizens to openly discuss the prospect of it becoming a world superpower.
China's Communist Party has a new agenda: It is encouraging people to discuss what it means to be a major world power, and has largely stopped denying that China intends to become one soon.
It's not that new. This has been discussed within the Beijing government, since it took control of Hong Kong. Hong Kong provided Beijing with a shot of instant revenue to jump start its venture into the world of free markets. Once they were able to complete the transfer, they became instant lottery winners.
The sleeping giant is stirring and will be fully awake in a few years. Now would be a good time, for a policy on China. Not later.
