From the inside

“History demonstrates that only a totalitarian system needs news censorship, out of the delusion that it can keep the public locked in ignorance”

That quote is from a letter denouncing the closure of the “Freezing Point” section of the China Youth Daily signed by “Mao’s secretary and biographer, Li Rui; an ex-editor-in-chief of the Communist Party’s own mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, Hu Jiwei; a former propaganda boss, Zhu Houze; and a former deputy chief of Xinhua News Agency, Li Pu.”
