China has survived in communism for more than 50 years since 1949. China's citizens share the sentiment in which they are all part of a collective and equal body.
Rather than political change, China put a focus on the economy. Political change is inevitably brought about by creating a strong economy. This system is much more sustainable, at least within a communist government, since a nation needs to trade and be open to foreign action in order to have a good economy.
Therefore, if US citizens cooperate in an equal and cooperative body, the country could flourish.
