China–the new Asian threat?

My mother did a semester of Chinese and I can remember [China Reconstructs][1] [1]: in the 1950/60’s coming in the mail and having vaguely sympathetic views of Chinese communism.

Wait. I think it was a different magazine [China Pictorial][2] [2]: Anyway, it was like a glossy picture magazine, but printed, not on glossy paper, but on matt paper.

This experience undoubtedly is connected to my interest in Chinese characters, but, after visiting China in 1992 in an attempt to re-enter Korea, and now living in Taiwan, I am generally unsupportive of anything to do with China and the Chinese government.
