Start the day with a letter to the european contact for the China Green Party, who set themselves up in august last year, and are facing opposition from the Government, and are now joining the Global Greens.
I have an enormous respect for Chinese history, civilisation, inventions, philosophy and poetry. I also have great hopes for China, because the wish for democracy cannot be held back indefinitely, and we must all hope that China will become a democracy at the same time as it moves into the position of being the world's No 1 economic power. This assumes that American economic dominance is about to cease. If this is the case, then the China Green Party will play an important role in leading the new China (and the world) into the Way of harmony with nature.
