ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with author Guy Sormans. Explaining the resurgent wave of nationalism among Chinese abroad, he said it is a blend of Marxism and jingoism but any diaspora tends to be nationalistic. Commenting on the democracy in China he pointed that people desire to be better represented, he said the party does not represent the people. He told that landgrabbing, absence of religious freedom, and one child policy are major sources of revolt everywhere.
