  1. Second step : Expressing your opinions. In China, people can criticize government freely, even question the system freely on internet, like in west.

;P another one with great sense of humor!

OK, then show us, go to Tiananmen square and critic government with 1meterx8meters board like for example, frenchies labour unions use to do in Paris.

We'll see.

Why do you keep talking about the same thing over and over? Yeah, yeah, we all know, or at least we should all know by now, that there is no complete free speech anywhere in the world. But that's no longer important. You're beating a dead horse.

What's important is people's daily lives. I would say that on average Chinese live much more restricted lives than say the Americans. The average Chinese is much unhappier than the average American, and it's not a financial issue, but rather a mentality issue. And, how many people have to deal with fear of corporal punishment and humiliation at the workplace for substandard performance? Maybe only the Chinese.

And Chinese are not even allowed to laugh, smile and make jokes. It is basically a dead culture. Americans have a sense of humor, at least they know how to enjoy life better than the Chinese, and that's most important. Who cares whether the Americans have free speech, when Chinese are suffering daily from fear, from just your ordinary workplace. No wonder so many Chinese men hang their heads in shame. No one cares anymore whether there's free speech in China. Nowadays people just talk about poor Chinese behavior on an everyday level, and why Chinese from Mainland China are so uncivilized. It's not a money problem, because those rich Chinese that burn money aren't any better.

Explain why there is more free speech in west than in China.

Look at west, who control #1 ? media and journalists. who control #3? media and journalists. even on #2, media and journalists have significant advantage over public, as the opinions of a journalist are equivalent to the opinions of thousands; the opinions of an anchor are equivalent to the opinions of millions.

Do any of the westerners here know the following :


Russian Church was right to condemn Pussy Riot, says Pope


The Pope has backed the Russian Orthodox Church's tough stance against the punk band Pussy Riot who were controversially jailed for two years after staging an anti-Vladimir Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral, it was reported last night.

Notice of the Pontiff's support appeared on the website of Patriarch Kirill – the leader of the Russian Church – following a meeting yesterday at the Vatican between Pope Benedict and the Patriarch's external affairs representative.

"Pope Benedict XVI expressed his solidarity with the position of the Russian Orthodox Church and his surprise with respect to the reaction of some of the media on these events," said the press notice.

If your media even dared to suppress the voice of pope because they don't like it, whose voices do they not dare to suppress?
