    This is going to make the Chinese government and the conservatives in China very angry.

    Do you think this guy is a hero ?

    I have two thoughts. Possibly three.

    First, there is nothing conservative about the old-guard Chinese government.

    Second, the Nobel folks probably cost this guy a lot of pain & suffering.

    Third, if this guy is a hero, then I want all the folks telling me to be a good Christian and obey my government to shut up.

    No - Crabby is right.

    In China the "conservatives" would be the ones who support the old Mao style communism - much like our "liberals". :laugh:

    This is a very, very good decision by the Nobel committee.

    It begins to make up for their mistake last year.
