ABSTRACT
In this article Wei Jingsheng, a Chinese political dissident and pro-democracy campaigner, discusses a number of issues regarding China and political thought. Central to the article is his creation of "The Fifth Modernization," a document Wei Jingsheng wrote in 1978 and which cost him a lengthy sentence as a political prisoner. Among other issues Wei asserts that the Communist Party in China rules by force rather than choosing to reform itself to become a political party in a democratic system of government.
