Alpha, omega of communism

/ 12:04 AM July 23, 2016

Communist Mao Zedong was undoubtedly an intelligent leader. So, the Chinese Communist Party that he founded should know the meaning of communism—there’s no such thing as private property; no property is yours or mine, all property is ours, shared in common.

So let us see how the Beijing government handles its maritime disputes with other countries.

When I was a member of a communist party in Germany, I often joined seminars on property ownership. That is why I believe that sharing, especially with the weak, is the alpha and the omega of communism. I hope China will not just preach this idea but also practice the same.

So let us all share in the bounties of the waters, rocks, etc. in the South China Sea for the sake of the next and future generations.
