As the world continues to cope with the continued economic devastation created by the coronavirus, many are beginning to understand that China irresponsibly handled the early outbreak of the virus and blatantly failed to take responsibility for the worldwide pandemic.

"The only way that government can be overthrown is for it to be so divided between different regions, between different provinces, between different military units -- some standing on the side of the people, some standing with the Communist Party leaders -- that you have a civil war break out within the ranks of the Communist Party itself," comments Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute and an internationally recognized authority on China.

Mosher, Steven (PRI)He says the way this situation has been handled has evidently caused real dissent within the party.

"President for life Xi Jinping is under criticism within the party. He's had to arrest a number of his critics, high ranking officials," Mosher relays. "So will we hear the sound of guns going off in the streets of Beijing as the struggle for power intensifies?"

If that happens, he believes the people of China will rise up once again, hopefully this time with some of the police and military on their side "and not on the side of the butchers of Beijing."
