If there was ever a place to draw a clear, bold, flashing neon line between Chinese people and the CCP/PRC, this is it. If you can't distinguish good citizens, family members, and genuinely altruistic people from government actions, then the data is not good enough for judgment

As the report recommends: "The response to the abuses identified in this report should not involve a knee-jerk rejection of Uyghur or Chinese labour. The problem is the policies that require Uyghurs to work under duress in violation of well-established international labour laws."

Quick glance at some quotes I have saved using the phrase "democratic centralism", a 2016 Seeking Truth article refers to "tigers" in the anti-corruption campaign of undermining "democratic centralism" because they "undermined THE PARTY'S organisation" and "unity".
