The owner of a medical supply company, Li Jianping, was sentenced to 3 years in prison, for 'subversion', after posting essays on the internet that were critical of the Chinese government.

The same thing is happening in Vietnam, another lovely communist regime, where internet users are being arrested for engaging in political debate. If you look at the list of Cyberdissidents who have been imprisoned (on the Reporters Sans Frontiere (Reporters without Borders) website) notice which countries have the most listed. China has, by far, the most followed by Vietnam, and the rest listed are Islamic countries.

Here we go again! I wrote about this in yesterday's post. A system that can't withstand a little criticism and attempts to silence those who do, does not deserve to exist. Freedom is a God given gift and should be vigorously defended at all costs.
