China continues to show its true colors by arresting artist Ai Weiwei
China is evil. In fact, I would argue that it is nearly the purest form of it. It does what true evil has always done. It cloaks itself in a way that it appears attractive to some. In our world, it extends a hand and a smile as it facilitates the near slave labor of its people. It prevents a too critical eye from being turned toward it by having deep financial ties with countries that should be treating it like the grotesque leper that it is. While some within our own government try to convince us we should be more like China, the realities reveal that nothing could be further from the truth.
China has kidnapped one of its artists for not towing the government line. His name is Ai WeiWei, and here is an interesting look into this man who was able to smuggle out a video discussing some of what he faces in China. Note how the TED person that introduces his video goes out of his way to not offend China – a country which profoundly deserves some offending.
