Pony Ma tells employees Tencent is ordinary and replaceable in company meeting


This kind of smug self-deprecating whataboutism will be the fall of western style democracy and you'll soon learn that authoritarian pseudo-communism is really no fun.

I've lived in enough places to know that flawed democracy is always better than pretty much any other style of government. Even good people become corrupted after holding power for too long. The liberal democratic model is full of cronies, corruption, bribes and all that good stuff but at its core is a stable foundation that allows the bad apples to be picked off.
