    I would actually be isttreneed in the reforms that you've mentioned as I gather that you're referring to political reform something I have not seen in evidence. The most that I could argue would be reform would be the transition to a more consensual form of governance and that was through necessity rather than introspective reflection. In other words, there is no singular leader who could command through personality or experience such as Mao or Deng and the only way to govern is through a group of like-minded individuals with common interests. But this is not reform, this is simply conforming to a situation. So, yes, I would be very isttreneed in understanding the reforms that you have referenced here.Perhaps you are correct in that I think truth and reconciliation is needed for China to have a better future I had not considered that. And I would agree that the absence of it does not necessarily make all other reforms moot. However, the fact that the country as a whole has either rewritten or ignored its history does not bode well and is, in my humble opinion, a serious impediment to future success. It is very difficult for a country to succeed in the future if it does not even know its past and cannot deal with its mistakes. Indeed, it is the Lost Generation that is coming to power now and the fact that an entire generation was so severely scarred by its experiences that it simply hides from or ignores them will very likely blind them to ways to create a better future or better future generations. Put another way, what is China reforming when it does not even know what its past mistakes were? Indeed, what need is there to reform if there were no mistakes (or known mistakes, anyway)?The definition of reform is the improvement or amendment of what is wrong, corrupt, unsatisfactory, etc. The government does not acknowledge that it was or is wrong, corrupt and that its actions have often been unsatisfactory (at best) so exactly what, then, is it reforming?
