When Nixon and Kissinger originally opened China what they were really doing was putting an end to the rule of communism there and replacing it with the rule of the crony capitalism -- an economic system that presently under-writes the ruling party's power.
Our Constitution and our economic system were no-where to be seen in the decision-making of those two fore-runners of the present-day conservative movement.
The conservative movement is the last gasp of the ancien regime in the modern world. The conservative movement is finding a home in the former super-powers -- America, China and Russia -- because those regimes still extol the virtues of large scale systems over the smaller scale ones that are closer to the ground.
