Do numbers make sense?

November 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

China is becoming the “bearer and driver of the new world”( Jacques).

China surpasses Japan as the World’s Second biggest economy this august 2010.Everyday we keep reading of how China is the emerging super power, but does all this improvement count for the human rights violation and the people not given the basic rights? Last week the world celebrated the release of aung san suu kyi, but today we read that the Noble Peace prize ceremony is cancelled. China will not allow any family members of Liu Xiaobo to attend the ceremony.

Every-time we boast about our achievements we should always think about whether we have achieved it in the right way or has our achievement come at the cost of someones’ freedom?!
