Dissident Free!

As Natan Sharansky, the divine avatar of Democrazy, points out in the essential "Case For Democracy" - gross and outright untrue lies are like oxygen for unfree, unfun (and often nigh unhinged) Regimes: They have to lie just to breathe.

News that the world's largest Collectivist Regime is Dissident Free at first seems like the news that Mullahopolis and controlled environs were "Gay Free"

Thinking harder, it's kinda telling that the world has never really heard about American, Japanese, French or Taiwanese dissidents.

Mainly because the League of Hot! Democrazies proves Uncle Tony's unrepentent tenant

"The inalienable right of humankind to be free--free to raise a family in love and hope, free to earn a living and be rewarded by your own efforts, free not to bend your knee to any man in fear, free to be you, so long as being you does not impair the freedom of others."

Ai Weiwei shed some xlation on what China's Foreign Ministry spokescat Ma Zhaoxu really meant:

1. Dissidents are criminals.

2. Only criminals have dissident ideas.

3. The distinction between criminals and non-criminals is whether they have dissident views.

4. If you think China has dissidents, you're a criminal.

5. The reason China has no dissidents is because they have already become criminals.

6. Does anyone have a dissenting view about what I've said?
