Foreign Companies Operating in China: Do Those Firms Support Oppression or Freedom and Individual Rights?

March 8th, 2011

Companies/corporations which take their operations to China (Peoples Republic of China) appear to support the proliferation of a government system which seems to be based upon the oppression of its people. On the other hand, companies which are creating a viable middle class in China also appear as nurturing the inevitable revolution which will take place in that nation in order to gain necessary individual rights and freedoms for China’s populace. Everyone knows that most successful revolutions have historically been brought about by the rise of an educated middle-class in any given population living under fascist-like oppression. Still, one has to wonder if the firms operating in modern-day China are concerned one way or the other regarding freedom or oppression of anyone.
