The CCP: "an unreliable partner and an impossible friend"


"Unfortunately, far from heeding those lessons [of the totalitarian centralism of Mao and Stalin], the CCP is erasing them from the history books – just as it is seeking to erase the memory of the 35 million Chinese citizens conservative estimates suggest it sent needlessly to their deaths. More powerful yet also more paranoid, than ever and trapped in a Leninist mindset that has repeatedly plunged the Chinese people into untold misery, it is doomed to remain, for Australia and the West, an unreliable partner and an impossible friend."
~ Henry Ergas, concluding his column 'As Xi Jinping’s Chinese Communist Party parties, history is rewritten'
