How is it possible that the state can't address the concerns of these citizens? Or track down and eliminate a renegade outfit that's not savvy enough to qualify as a rebellion?

The Berlin Wall was brought down over 20 years ago, Russia and China have embraced and developed their own brand of capitalism. Yet our JNU educated commies still call themselves Leninists, Marxists and Maoists. Even the original reds would be laughing at this.
