Rate this:
Chinese intellectuals have a traditional duty, for which there is no equivalent in the West: to worry, to take responsibility for all under heaven, to argue the question What can we do with China? The Spring 1989 demonstrations in Tiananmen Square climaxed a year of animated, despairing, idealistic worry - a year in which writers, journalists, scientists, professors and officials were able to gather in private to trade views on the corruption permeating Chinese society and the political repression exercised by the Communist Party. This pastime of chatting always turned to questions of responsibility: Should one resist - how? Follow an independent path? Flee the country?
