Chan report

And the other day there was a report that a Chinese Nobel Prize winning writer was sticking up for censorship!
The US practices censorship, with a heavy hand, but hypocritically lauds liberty. Wouldn’t it be nice if China praised totalitarianism while actually practicing freedom?
But I fear freedom is just a word in a world with a billion Indians, a billion or so Chinese, and American multi-billionaires. People by the hundred might survive, not people by the billion.

First I stuck the above in my News Monthly, got feedback quoting part. Yeah, I want to quote part myself. So I promote it to a post.
