Mr. Wang Zhongfang shares his views on cross strait relations. He suggests that current leaders in China and Taiwan would learn important lessons from Dr. Sun Yat-Sen’s “Three Principles of the People”, which are the ideological foundation of the Xinhai Revolution that ended dynastic rule in China.

Mr. Wang acknowledges that the two dominant political parties in China and Taiwan have their roots in Dr. Sun’s Three Principles, but would serve their societies more effectively by revisiting the Three Principles of Nationalism, Democracy and Peoples Livelihood.

Mr. Wang joined Chairman Mao’s communists in Yanan in 1937 at age 16.

It is extremely rare for such a high ranking Communist Party insider to speak publicly with such candor about this topic.
