Fairly interesting piece (why gush?)

China’s Course Parallels Old Germany’s
(James P. Pinkerton, Newsday -- BEIJING, 22 March 2005)

Like Germany in the 19th century, China in the 21st century is demanding its place in the sun. Today the world is witnessing a clash of national interests with no easy, peaceful solution.

I note with some pointed interest that Pinkerton does not address any parallels between China's aggressive population control policies and then-Germany's eugenic misanthropy. Is a threat a threat only if it threatens the born and viable?
