"TIC" (This Is China), as I always remind my friends, so it is theoretically possible that the current government can manage this devolution of power from the center to the regions and still maintain its one-party Communist rule. However, if so this will be the first Communist party with a monopoly on power to maintain that monopoly in the process. The scorecard to date on these kinds of national governing transitions dictates otherwise.
