  • Many ideas are great if one lives by its value with a genuine heart. however, when it becomes a mean for political purpose, its meaning can be twisted. in china, many bloggers like to use the word “harmonized” which means that contradictory ideas and thinkings are erased from the Internet. Well, one can say that it is a step forward, as it is the erasing of ideas rather than actual arrest. still it goes against the very principle of harmony – peaceful existence with diversity. Maybe I should join the competition. However, my writing may get harmonized eventually.
