Considering how much US debt China holds I think learning chinese is a good idea. Huānyíng bàzhǔ BTW, even in China communism is dead. Communism is an economic system of collectivization, not to be confused with the police state civic. Obviously the district quoted above hasn't played Civ4 and therefore does not distinguish between governmental civics and economic civics. Imagine the great leap forward of intellectual sophistication if playing Civ was a required part of the school curriculum. Suddenly it would be difficult to conflate a government system (police state, democracy) with an economic system (free market vs communism).
