I had to learn that some of my writing, when it touches on issues concerning Taiwan, Tibet or the South Chinese Sea, would cause those in charge of the respective publication to potentially put their jobs at risk or if being a foreigner their visas being revoked.
Admitting some naivety in my general intention to live the values of the Enlightenment, I want to express my genuine admiration for the Chinese culture and the Chinese people despite considerable disagreement with China's government. This blog's paramount intention is to promote China as a central force for humanity's progress.
Living in China for more than a decade as a foreign guest, but meanwhile feeling here more at home than where I hail from, it is my duty to respect her government's opinions on issues of national security and economic policies. Therefore, I have - based on the critical subject list which I was provided upon recent submission - deleted all blog entries which might irritate my host government, and apologize sincerely if I have offended somebody with my writing. 万岁和平！
