Blogs are dangerous! There have been several cases of people getting fired by their employers for stuff they wrote in their blogs (related to the company they work for).
So lay down, bend over, obey and do what you are told. Give up, don't maintain your rights (as if you ever had any). Be quiet, don't make a noise. Go with the flow. Trade liberty for comfort, you traitor.
Of course I maintain a blog. On my blog, I am king. There I can (and do) publish all the texts and pictures that I can't publish here and elsewhere, because nobody can tell me what I can't write. Using that freedom is a privilege, and it is also something that has to be done if the freedom is to remain (and be spread to all places where it isn't).
My best Christmas wishes to all Chinese bloggers; you mean so much to the further development of China and, as a result, to the world. You are part of shaping the new China, stretching the limits, making China more informed, tolerant and enlightened, making China participate more in the local and global villages, making China freer.
One freedom fighter is Li Yinhe (李银河), a sexologist with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. She is blogging about the sexual revolution in China, about the rights of HBT, and the legalization of prostitution. Read her wise posts at http://blog.sina.com.cn/m/liyinhe
"Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it." (Abraham Lincoln)
"They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." (Abraham Lincoln)
This is as true in China as anywhere. Keep on blogging inthe free world.
