Deng Xiaoping’s Legacy Divides Chinese Leadership

Saturday, 13.10.2007

Seventeen former ministers, officials and scholars, who see themselves as the protectors of Mao’s legacy, sent a letter to Hu [Jintao] in July. The country is sliding down an “evil path,” they wrote. “Party secretaries have become capitalists, and capitalists have become party members.” … But for dedicated Deng followers, the reforms haven’t gone far enough. In a letter to the liberal publication Yanhuang Chunqiu, they warned the Communist Party leadership of the dangers of social unrest that they fear could plunge China into a crisis.
