Li Rui joined the the communist party in China in 1937. He witnessed the entire revolution and
as a former confidante of Mao, he saw the dark side of the Chinese moon. He died a few days ago
at the age of 101. Betrayed years ago by his wife, he carried on, preaching against authoritarianism,
and as a demonstration of how that ugly centralized power continues today, his daughter announced
she will boycott his funeral. Know your enemy.....Li Rui Obit NY Times
