“About our press – articles from three clubs in one way or another raised the question of doing away with the People’s Daily World because it “takes too much effort, money, and time.” And, as one article said, “We don’t have the time to visit the contacts we make with the paper anyway.”

To do away with the People’s Daily World would be the first step in liquidating the Party. I don’t see any alternative to our press  – or our Party. Here again, the influence of the People’s Daily World is much greater than its subscriptions alone.”
