简直就是一个神书。作为一百年前的书,能预测到一部分就不错了,不能强求都预测对了。
现在看来对中国太乐观了,毕竟没有料到铲子上台。

不过最有趣的还是对中国人性格的分析,里面有一段很有意思。
With us, money is desired chiefly as a
means to power; politicians, who can acquire power without much money,
are often content to remain poor. In China, the tuchuns (military
governors), who have the real power, almost always use it for the sole
purpose of amassing a fortune. Their object is to escape to Japan at a
suitable moment; with sufficient plunder to enable them to enjoy life
quietly for the rest of their days. The fact that in escaping they lose
power does not trouble them in the least.
当年当官的都想捞钱,国内当不下去了,大不了官不当了,移民到日本带着那些钱反正可以欢度余生。

现在也差不多,只不过日本换成美国了。
