U.S. ambassador reflects on social mood in China

U.S. ambassador: Political situation in China “very, very delicate”
"Do you think that the situation is fundamentally stable in China right now?" Inskeep asked Locke. "I think, very delicate -- very, very delicate," Locke responded. "But there were calls earlier this year for a Jasmine Revolution and nothing came of it. I think it would take something very significant, internal to China, to cause any type of major upheaval."
He describes it how I describe it and some friends have described it. You can sense the mood. Nothing is going to happen now, but there's a potential out there; if there's a spark it could quickly catch fire.
