at all levels. the united states is, we are told, in danger of being overtaken by communist china. now, communist china is not a free society. it's much freer than it used to be when, in the days when communist rule was absolutely absolute, but it is not free in that you can't always speak your mind, you can't always do the work you want in the way you want, you can't always listen and hear what is going on in the airwaves and so forth. the -- recently there's been withdrawal by google because they weren't allowed to operate freely, and that is one indication of what chinese cultural civilization is like. now, although china has advanced very rapidly, i think in the long run the united states will stay well ahead and probably increasingly ahead simply because it has that kind of free society which china doesn't. i would put more money, myself, on india coming up. i think probably during the process of the 21st century india will overtake china in terms of production and productivity and inventiveness and so on because the indian society is much more of a free society than china's.

beijing china so they have the expertise but more importantly than that they recognized they had a temperament of being a team player. in other words the belief that he wasn't bigotry to undermine ronald reagan and wasn't going to try to crab glory for himself and so that became the two qualities i think that led him to be the choice. that was not without dissension. it ends up being an excellent choice and they have a very good relationship. they were not close or powells. these were very different people. people forget culturally they came from very different backgrounds and they have differences. ronald reagan was the antiestablishment republican potentially looked at running and 68 against nixon. the nearly lost so he was the antiestablishment republican and george h. w. bush of course was an establishment republican having served even the chairman of the republican party itself. i wouldn't say that they were close but they worked well together and it was a mutual respect on both parts, which i think was a key ingredient between the two and they have different strengths. george

might have said he's upset and he just got back from china and he just couldn't even get in his own house leave him alone, is not for the of arresting him because he's in his own house. once i had a status the situation was under control with the other way to look at it is he was challenging their authority and they felt that he was out of control in terms of the abuse of language and a light and that they wanted to reassert their authority in that situation for there was no racial profiling. with the president introduced say this is an example of how black people are subjected to racial profiling so to deal with that problem given had to have the beer summons and i think it worked with the president to try to extricate himself from this mess because it is a conversation he does invade, is a drag on his approval ratings and the polls that were done during that time showed his numbers were going down especially with white americans to the health of the present may have spoken at of term and somehow become of trying to show off some specific loyalty work playing racial politics. just
