Here is a article “Wild dogs of nationalism let off the leash” on Beijing 08 blogs of Sydney Morning Herald by award winning sports writer John Birmingham. The Article starts with
Picture a couple of Falun Gong dudes, or a Tibetan Monk sitting in a cell, waiting for the Games to finish so they can be executed and give up their organs for harvest.
This picture in someone’s mind is not new and not that exiting about . What I think is interesting is John has asked a good question later on
“But can the Chinese government let people have a good time? Can they let go of their inner control freak and let people dance on the tables? Let ‘em run wild, and free? Their neurotic obsession with the minutiae of the events media controls suggest otherwise.”
May I ask everyone here with the same question :
“can the Chinese government let people have a good time during Olympics?”
who would be those who are going to have fun and have a dance on the table? How many are they?
I think John would be surprised in two weeks. Time would tell us(or Buxi would tell us)
