WSJ.com - China's Uncivil Society: "China is currently a social time bomb, slowly ticking. No one knows when some random incident or crisis might inadvertently serve to trigger the explosion. But once it happens, all thought of 'building a harmonious and stable society' -- the Communist government's latest slogan -- will be too late. China needs civil society urgently. Workers, peasants, and all other ordinary Chinese need their own representative organizations to defend and look after their basic rights and interests. Only the emergence of a genuine, functioning civil society in China can suffice to avert the looming crisis."
