You gotta admit that being a civil rights lawyer in China is just asking for trouble.

Condemnation from world leaders in 3, 2... haha, just kidding, as long as the Chinese Government keeps up the trade thing they can do whatever they want.

Asking four trouble for doing the right thing. I don't get that concept. It doesn't mean anything except as a pretty fudge for tyrants.

That's like the old italian man from catch 22 who told the soldier he supported the axis troops when they came to town and the supported the allied troops. It is better to live on your feet than die on your knee he would say and the soldier kept telling him he had it wrong but he just didn't see that he had no principles he wanted to die for.

Maybe we could balance our trade deficit by exporting some SJWs to China where they are actually needed.

More importantly, as long as certain Chinese individuals keep selling made-in-china-for-china stuff (which is so much cheaper/better for the price than made-in-China-for-export stuff, i.e., almost literally everything available at retail in the West) to westerners online. I've gotten everything from $30 equivalent knives for under $10 to a friggin' USB Bluetooth dongle for $2 and free shipping that way. I feel for the people of China, but holy hell have I gotten some deals out of that country.

I thought about doing that. Have you had any problems with the manufacturers or custom agents?

Some people are willing to die for their beliefs. Sure, they could probably run, but I guess they'd rather fight for their people. So whether or not they were "asking for trouble", you can't really blame some people for standing up for human rights, against all odds.
