Prasad J stated for the record:
Having said this, I do stand by my earlier
statement that to aid Chinese citizens in their efforts to break the
law of their land (even if the said law is unjust) is tantamount to
abetting a crime.
And there you have a wonderful summary of the difference in attitudes
often seen between Americans and those who did not build their country
on the violent overthrow of established government. I, in apparent
contrast to Prasad, believe that whenever any form of government --
whether elected or not -- becomes destructive of its people's
unalienable rights, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.
