Jailed Chinese dissident wins Nobel peace prize

Well, this year's Nobel Peace Prize winner has actually done something to deserve it. Unlike Barack Obama.

Chinese human rights campaigners celebrate as Liu Xiaobo wins Nobel peace prize | World news | The Guardian

It's a shame that all those Chinese people working for human rights are wasting their time and blood and lives. China traded one Emperor for another--with the title of "Chairman" put on the org chart instead--and otherwise continued on with the same basically feudal society they've had for thousands of years.

There was a brief moment in history when things COULD have been different for the mainland Chinese, but another such moment probably won't show up for a very, very long time.
