The Voice of Treason: Ai Weiwei

The Voice of Treason; China's Most Famous Dissident Artist, Ai Weiwei

This is a very simple article but the point Ai Weiwei makes in the paragraph that begins, "Ai believes the world shares responsibility for what is happening in China," is particularly interesting. The US has abdicated a lot of moral responsibility in the last few decades and continues to do so. Now our "civilian" police are equipped to respond to non-violent protests with military precision and  protected by military armor.
