We, as Americans, have been too comfortable in our existence for far too long.
We assume that the basis for our lives, the US Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, documents based on Judeo/Christian values, are the law of the land. Why? Because, in the US, that's our basic philosophy. What we fail to remember is that other parts of the world see things differently.
One of the strangest things I have seen develop in California (and LOTS of strange things happen here) is the simple fact that the California political structure, overwhelmingly "Progressive Democrat," not only ALLOWED, but strongly developed a Chinese Communist value structure for its statewide health care system. That development is personified in State Senator Richard Pan.
