Josiah Thompson Posted over 1 year ago Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems I love how this talk incorporates evolution. That's really what constitutes something reliable; how able it is to adapt and evolve. I am convinced. Democracy is not the only political structure that works, and in its current state, it is becoming more and more inefficient. However, I believe that democracy also has the ability to evolve, and therefore, it's not completely hopeless. There are many things I don't understand about the CCP, and perhaps it is more adaptable than western political structures are right now.
