The truth behind the cCP
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP, as previously mentioned) is the founding/ruling political party of modern China. It consists of more than 86 million members as of 2012. In this year, however, the CCP had undergone a 180o, decennial power transition that saw its 5th generation of leaders set the future plan for the 2nd-LARGEST economy in the world. While China’s Communist party has maintained a political monopoly since its beginning, the effects of China's quick economic growth have activated multiplying social unease and political unbalance that affect the country's possibilities of becoming a global leader. A fair amount of political scandals has also let out some insight of power struggles inside the unpopular, somewhat shady governmental organization.

There is a history of the Chinese people's struggle with maintaining their civil rights is similar to the issues that occurred in the 1960's during the U.S. Civil Rights movement. For example, African Americans had limited rights, and there were American government officials debating on how these rights should be granted similar to how the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, is trying to today. The other example is that African Americans couldn't voice their opinion anywhere in the U.S. because of their ethnicity, similar in restrictions to the Chinese civilians.
The Chinese civilian population should revolt against the Communist government
Chinese civilians (educated OR uneducated) should revolt against the government to bring about Democracy in China. They DON'T because for the past 60 years, roughly 2 generations of people have only been given the idea that their government is excellent at it's job to maintain and control the country. I believe that the U.S. government intimidated African Americans just as the Chinese government does, but through peaceful marches, they had their own version of a revolt, and it worked. The Civil Right Marches of the 1960 showed the government that the African American people had a voice and had the right to be heard. This is an example that the Chinese people should follow to make sure there voice could be heard. The Chinese people could also follow the example of the man that stood in front of the tank.
On June 5, 1989, a single man stood in front of hundreds of tanks that rolled down the street in Beijing, China. This man was quietly protesting the previous weeks of civil unrest in China. "Charlie Cole was in Beijing on June 5, 1989 for Newsweek magazine. His version of the moment is tight — three stacked tanks, painted lines in the road emphasizing the direction of the tanks, all paths leading towards one man. The details are clear and striking: the red star on the tank and the bags held by the man, making it seem like his protest was an afterthought on the way home from work or from the market. Simple, striking, and powerful." This is an example of a revolt that was powerful, yet non-violent.
