To complete the X factor, an interesting character found by chance.

XZhongxun (1913 - 2002).
Chinese communist revolutionary and a subsequent political official in the People's Republic of China. He is considered to be among the first generation of Chinese leadership. The contributions he made to the Chinese communist revolution and the development of the People's Republic, from the founding of Communist guerrilla bases in northwestern China in the 1930s to initiation of economic liberalization in southern China in the 1980s, are numerous and broad. He was known for political moderation and for the setbacks he endured in his career. He was imprisoned and purged several times. Xi is also the father of Xi Jinping, the current General Secretary of the Communist Party and President of Chinaand also Chairman of the Military Commission.
