    The world needs more healthy "nightmares" like these. Anything that can bring down the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) constitutes moral progress. From strongarming the Catholic Church by playing Pope Francis like a fiddle, to barring children from formation in true religion, to genocide, to shadow warfare, the very existence of the CCP is a plague on the world and the peace of Christ. I am not saying that the West is a saint; far from it. But for the time being, religion is still permitted here.
