Every day you read something scary about Russia or China, or maybe both, flexing their muscles on the world stage. Russia interferes in the U.S. elections! Russia sends cruise missiles into Syria! Russia tests new "invincible" nuclear missile! Russia poisons ex-spy living in England! China builds militarized islands in the South China Sea! China expands its navy! China helps North Korea avoid sanctions!
Then you consider the political news coming out of both countries. The short version is that, after a few decades of flirting with nascent versions of liberalism, both countries are most if not all the way back to absolute dictatorship. . . .
So both Russia and China are now going to have near-absolute rulers in power for life. Is there any problem with that?
