One learns of dissidents being jailed in China for long terms. This is not unusual. However, what exactly are their crimes? Are they advocating violent overthrow of the Communist Govt? If so, that naturally would not be acceptable. Would calling a govt 'autocratic' be wrong? And what if it is 'autocratic' so what? Or does it go against the projection of the Govt that it is a very benign, benevolent and very caring govt. Every govt in the world claims to be doing much for its people when in actuality it does not. What's so new about it that should spook the Chinese Communist Govt? What exactly is the Chinese Communist Govt afraid of? If Chinese rules were applied in India, then I presume more than 3/4th of India's population would have been in jail. But then without such rules that restricts dissensions, grousing, bellyaching and a form of slavery, there would be no progress. It must always be remembered that most of the Wonders of the World like the Pyramids and so on, would not have been such marvels, but for slave labour! And there is no doubt, that the progress of China from a poverty stricken, impoverished nation of lazy opium addicts, its spiralling to these great heights is but another marvel of the world.
