The way you do succeed at anything is you look at a desperate situation, especially when it is cheap, or it is repressive and it is opening up. It is hard to do, it is like a stock that is cheap, nobody wants it but it is the best way to capitalize.
If you look at Asia for instance, 50 years ago, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, all were very, very repressive and now they are all vibrant, successful democracies.
