This Just In: Individual Rights Aren’t Big in China

I wonder if this breathtaking revelation was also supplied by unnamed Pentagon sources whispering in parking garages. After all these years, the NY Times has learned that rights and privileges in China don’t mean dookey.

“More Chinese citizens...are claiming legal rights and often citing the Constitution, but it is actually a flimsy tool for protecting individual rights.”

Lucky for them it’s the “People’s Republic” and they can rectify things. Imagine what ruthless totalitarian tyrants would do with a meaningless constitution. Yikes.

I smell a Pulitzer.
