Ba Jin

I had no idea the old man had died back in 2005, nor even that he had survived that long. I read about his passing in a recent article in the Anarcho-Syndicalist Review. One of the most important political thinkers in the Asian Twentieth Century, possibly more influential in Chinese political and literary thought than anyone except Mao himself. The last survivor of the May 4th movement, and a deeply honorable and principled man. Chap Cheat, Mitth.
