Forced abortions and brutal government crackdowns on any form of dissent being a plus in Soros book…

(FP Passport)– If nothing else, Glenn Beck probably has his top story set for tonight’s show:

“There is a really remarkable, rapid shift of power and influence from the United States to China,” Mr. Soros said, likening the U.S.’s decline to that of the U.K. after the Second World War.

Because global economic power is shifting, Mr. Soros said China needs to change its focus. “China has risen very rapidly by looking out for its own interests,” he said. “They have now got to accept responsibility for world order and the interests of other people as well.”

Mr. Soros even went so far as to say that at times China wields more power than the U.S. because of the political gridlock in Washington. “Today China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States,“ he said, a hard statement for him to make because he spent much of his life donating to anti-communist groups in Eastern Europe.

CAJ note: Read this horrifying article from The Times of India to remind yourselves about the marvelous quality of life enjoyed under this Soros-approved government of Communist China:

BEIJING: A pregnant woman in south China was detained, beaten and forced to have an abortion just a month before her due date because the baby would have violated the country’s one-child limit , her husband said on Thursday.

Construction worker Luo Yanquan said his wife was taken kicking and screaming from their home by more than a dozen people on October 10 and detained in a clinic for three days by family planning officials, then taken to a hospital and injected with a drug that killed her baby.

Family planning officials told the couple that they weren’t allowed to have the child because they already have a 9-year-old daughter, Luo said.

For the last 30 years, China has limited most urban couples to just one child in a bid to curb population growth and conserve its limited resources. China has the world’s largest population, with more than 1.3 billion people. Couples that flout the rules face hefty fines, seizure of their property and loss of their jobs.

The case is an extreme example of the coercive measures Chinese officials sometimes use to comply with the strict family planning regulations.

Though illegal, police and judicial authorities often look the other way when forced abortion cases are reported and the heavily censored state media shy away from such news.

But in recent years, victims have begun to speak out about their ordeals with the help of the internet and text messaging…

One-child China forces woman to abort 8-month-old fetus

Update: Soros isn’t alone. ABC News and Thomas Friedman Tout China the Great Economic Power.

…[Friedman] said China’s investments are paying off. Oh sure, their human rights abuses will catch up to them at some point, but we need to get more rigorous, while they need to get more creative or something. This is the same guy who has written that he pines for despotism, as long as it’s led by some “reasonably enlightened people.”

The whole show seemed like a celebration of the rise of China, and the downfall of the United States…

Update 2: From The Lonely Conservative:

To help mold the United States into something more akin to China’s communist/corporatist state, Soros met with his fellow progressive billionaires to pledge more of their fortunes to groups committed to the transformation of America.
