Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei: Freedom Will Win

Somehow I’d miss this mini-manifesto by the embattled Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. It’s well worth reading. Money quote: “[In] the long run, [China’s] leaders must understand it’s not possible for them to control the Internet unless they shut it off – and they can’t live with the consequences of that. The Internet is uncontrollable. And if the Internet is uncontrollable, freedom will win. It’s as simple as that.”
