In an article in the NY Times yesterday, concerning President Biden’s referring to Xi Jinping as a dictator, the authors note that in article 1 of China’s constitution, the word dictatorship is included. ‘The People’s Republic of China is a socialist state under the people’s democratic dictatorship led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and peasants.’
Okay.
But is that not an oxymoron? Just how is a democracy a dictatorship…
