Democracy Quote of the Day

Filed under: — K. M. Lawson @ 6:36 pm

“We Communists always oppose a one-party dictatorship, and don’t approve of the Nationalists having a one-party dictatorship. The CCP certainly doesn’t have a program to monopolise government because one party can only rule in its own interests and won’t act according to the Will of the People. Moreover, it goes against democratic politics.” Deng Xiaoping, 16th March 1941

Quoted in David S. G. Goodman Social and Political Change in Revolutionary China: The Taihang Base Area in the War of Resistance to Japan, 1937-1945 Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Lanham, ML, 2000, p61. Cited as in Deng Xiaoping “Guanyu chengli JinJiYu bianqu linshi canyihui de tiyi” in Balujun zongbu zai Matian Shanxi renmin chubanshe, 1990, p29.
