The parallel between Hu’s outgoing 2012 warning about danger from “corruption” in the Chinese Communist Party and Eisenhower’s 1960 outgoing warning about the danger posed by the “military-industrial complex” is striking — both are astute observations by individuals with deep knowledge from an inside position of the associated character and power involved, and despite occupying the highest office in their respective countries (a major force in the world of their times) were essentially powerless to make any substantive institutional corrections for the endemic problem which they tried, perhaps bravely or foolishly, to highlight in a very public way.
