2010 = 1980 ?

In 1980, the USSR was 'known' to be a permanent, relatively stable, and growing power. However, within 10 years, it was little more than dust. Eaten from the inside by the parasites of inefficiency and bloated bureaucracy and by the growing power of a middle class and the growing anger of the poor.

Could 2010 turn out to have been China's 1980? The same necessary elements are present and they are moving. To precipitate the reaction, one need only to add heat.

Just a thought.
