“How is democracy possible without ending one-party rule, without popular suffrage? Return the people’s rights to the people!”
Is this quote from a new dissident writing online? No. It is from the Xinhua Daily, mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China on September 27, 1945. Asia Times had a comment article titled “China ready for democracy in 1940s, not today” by Li Yongyan. And this quote is from that article.
