via US should clean up its own human rights issues – Global Times.

The Global Times article is factual and presents a well-reasoned argument. It brings in to question US criticism of China’s record on human rights.

Americans will counter that China is not a democracy, with one-political party, and  media controls.

It is probably timely for me to ask two open-questions:

  1. What happened to the America that was the champion of freedom of the individual?
  2. Is the American Dream dead?

Thoughts?
