  • Nobel Struggle in China

    This week, Chinese government censors tried their best to stop the spread of the news jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Liu is serving 11 years in a Chinese prison for signing a document called “Charter 08,” a declaration of human rights that any American can take for granted. Dr. Lee Edwards speaks in this week’s Heritage in Focus podcast on the meaning of this significant Peace Prize award, and the state of human rights in China in the historical context of totalitarian communist regimes.

      China is one of the oldest civilizations in the world and has never had a democratic form of government. When I hear people talk about how China is moving towards a free interprise system I have to laugh. They have no regard for human rights the way we do. Their record of enviromental protections is awful. They are a difficult country for Americans to understand , yet we should highlight their human rights record and support the Chinese people who desire to be free.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer
