|Morning Star and John Wight: China fans|
Why did we not grasp this before? Chinese workers do not need or want democracy - an imperialist construct that we can safely treat with contempt. In fact, as comrade Wight so helpfully explains, democracy is somehow inherently ‘unChinese’ - just not part of the country’s psyche. Let’s face it, they will never understand this democracy business. Frankly, such comments are almost racist. In the last century these sorts of ideas were used to justify South African apartheid, British colonialism and the Nazi dictatorship.
