Wai Kit Lau Posted over 3 years ago When will China be free? Well, it should take some times. It will take few more generations. The leaders of the previous generation still have great influence in the governance. We have to wait till they pass. Also, the higher level in the government has already become more open but still lower level (province level or below) sticks to the old 'mode' of governance. The reason is the officials in these levels are not yet well educated inaspect of human rights or freedom. Note that when these officials were in their teens and 20s, China was experiencing cultural revolution which had a great influence in their thoughts.
