yesterday’s piece is a mixture of sarcasm and what i really want to say.
more because of 無奈。Xi obviously understands the weaknesses of all the western leaders. merkel, may, macron... no one speaks of liu directly, only via spokesmen.
apparently, all depend on china's investment and buying power.
when i spoke of simple and naivete, actually more about liu's wife.
she wept in front of the camera that they didn't realize that publishing the 07 charter could land him in jail.
saw her bio the day before. she is an artist, poet... cutting her hair like an eastern nun also explains this too. she is a total 感性人物. With little common sense, challenging the party is like throwing herself into a gladiator ring.
liu's “i have no enemy” statement is a naive interpretation of christianity. you want the party which controls 1.3b people to dissolve like the soviet communist party. the party surely sees you as their enemy. and in that sense, you have created your own enemy.
jesus is not afraid to die because he is the 'son of god' and will resurrect. would liu think of himself likewise?
