a cautionary lesson for the modern world

On the modern barbarians of China.

The extract is from Bully of Asia by Mosher, an excellent social study of modern Chinese socialism. The echoes of German national socialism are very instructive, even echoes of the British empire are none too comfortable.

And then there is the EUSSR!

"All criticism of China's actions in Tibet was met by Chinese officials and ordinary citizens alike with a recital of purportedly irrefutable facts. All Chinese know, or think they know, that Tibetans are vastly better off now than they were under the feudal rule of the Dalai Lama and that each and every advance since that time has been due to the generosity of the Chinese government and people. That the Tibetans might prefer to govern themselves and enact their own laws instead of being governed by a foreign race with a superiority complex is simply inconceivable to them. The same Chinese who will rail for hours about the evil foreigners who colonised China in centuries past, will angrily defend China's right to colonise Tibet in the present day." [ p. 212]
