Today is October 10. To think what was once such a great power, even with all the support it had from the United States, could be defeated by a ragtag army of “bandits” and had to escape to Taiwan. How impotent and powerless that government was! How deep the hatred the people had for it! Today, the Chinese Communist Party has been in power for over 60 years, and the people are starting to show signs of displeasure with the powers-that-be, and this displeasure is snowballing. All the people in high places within the CCP would do well to look at history with a reverent heart, to constantly tackle the people’s dissatisfaction, and to depend the foundations of this nation.
