It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream.

Fee-paying/respect-craving “leftist” Henry Farrell comments on his own post about tribulations of the Chinese underclass:

…anyone who thinks that they would have a better time as a dissident or petitioner for change in China, or in any other authoritarian country, than in the US, the UK, France, Germany, Ireland etc really has no idea of what it is like to live in a regime that denies basic political freedoms to its citizens.

Great insight, Henry. However: it depends on who they is, doesn’t it? If they is a member of the US underclass, chances are he is already in jail, or on parole, or probation, or in any case has exactly none of those “basic political freedoms”.

Go watch The Wire or something…

    At this time it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
