Quote to Remember: On the China Model

Saturday, September 5, 2015
Chinese and Tibetan dissidents are either locked up in prison, forced into hiding, or silenced by fear of police retaliation against their families. All the happiness about China's economic growth has made many Americans forget that police clubs and guns and the Laogai system keep the Communist Party in power. Moreover, it is still little recognized how American resources help to sustain that power through trade, investments, and the transfer of technology... It is only when the Laogai is abolished in China that real change will come about.
-- Harry Wu, founder of the Laogai Research Foundation, who spent 19 years imprisoned in Chinese forced labor camps.
