Weigel on the "China-Vatican Deal?"

For a different "take" than the one by Adrian Vermeule and Gladden Pappin, which I posted the other day ("China and the Vatican:  Principles for the Rationally Ignorant Catholic"), see this piece, by George Weigel.  Weigel contends, among other things, that the "deal" being discussed would represent a deeply regrettable failure to learn lessons from the failure of the 1933 Reichskonkordat and would violate the Church's law which states that "no rights or privileges of election, appointment, presentation, or designation of bishops are conceded to civil authorities."
