The Fifth Modernisation

I've added a link here to explain what I mean by the Fifth Modernisation for those of you who perhaps are not completely up on Chinese political discourse.

Wei Jingsheng (魏京生) is someone I greatly admire for his courage in standing up for freedom and democracy in China. Sadly he has had to spend rather a long time in jail and subsequently in exile in the USA.

Although steeped in some of the rhethoric of the time his sentiments remain timeless.

Ming and his ghost writer would do well to talk to him about the situation in China.

Thanks for pointing that out Tristan.

I think that the link is working now. Blogger seemed to do something strange to this link for some reason when I programmed it in html.

Sorry about that.
