  1. I'm impressed. Thank you Bjorn for sharing this information. Strong guy!

  2. Ai Weiwei was arrested today when he was about to take off to HongKong.
    As an American citizen, he was still unable to ensure his personal freedom in Chinese' territory.
    No one knew where he was in the first 24 hours, which is a "typical Chinese retain" policy.
    I am not too crazy about his installation art, but the fact that he started to call for social revolution through his art and thus to raise global awareness for Chinese human rights, represents the Chinese art is going globalization as well.
    We do not only need to fit in the world economically, but also mentally with a free mind.
    The thing is, without the utter truth of the history and government, the Chinese would never get to exercise their ability of critical thinking.

    Unable to tell what is right and what is wrong, Chinese still could not make valuable judgments even if the freedom of speech is given.
