Communism in China: No Longer a System, Merely an Outdated Brand Name
Eugene Robinson: The China I know
Washington Post

An incisive quote, from an unexpected source. Chinese intellectuals the world over have known this for some time, but many intellectuals in the US remain blissfully clueless.

“China is governed by a regime that calls itself communist. But … communism self-immolated two decades ago … Communism is no longer a system in China. It’s just a brand name that officials haven’t figured out how to ditch.”
— Eugene Robinson, Columnist for the Washington Post
