This day in international legal history

On this day (25 October) in 1971, the General Assembly of the United Nations approved Resolution 2758, which recognized the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as “the only legitimate representative of China to the United Nations.” Alas, Communist China continues to be ruled by murderous dictators and should thus be expelled from the U.N., along with Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Russia. At the very least, Taiwan should be allowed to rejoin the U.N. table without further delay. Change my mind! (I say “rejoin” because the Republic of China or ROC, which relocated to Taiwan in 1949, had represented China at the United Nations since 1945, the year the U.N. was founded. Taiwan, however, continues to be excluded from the U.N. table to this day. For additional information about the legal and political status of Taiwan, see here.)
