Re: OT: Yahoo- apparently now an extension of the Chinese govt secret police....

I should add that my original statement pertains to (obviously) the Chinese
*government* alone! I am concerned about the repression that the Chinese
people experience, and the basic freedoms that they lack.
As far as 'China hate' is concerned- this definately doesn't apply to me-
many of my friends are from mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. I lived
for many years in the area, and speak pretty passable Mandarin myself (was
pretty fluent, but it has deteriorated a bit, I'm afraid!). So, love the
Chinese people, their culture, and history - resent the Chinese government's
repression (though I personally believe the Hu Jin Tao *may* turn out to be
a great improvement on leaders such as Jiang Zemin, Deng Xiaoping, and
obviously Mao Zedong- I hear that Hu Jin Tao even met Hu Yaobang's widow,
and plans a commemoration in the Great Hall of the People!!).

I do not hate myself or any other Chinese people.
I do hate the lack of respect for human rights shown by the mainland
Chinese government, and the slave labor prisons otherwise known as
"cheap labor". And the lack of self-respect that allows others to turn
a blind eye to this for their own profit.
