What is freedom?

For all of us who have lived in a free country for 60 years, we tend to not comprehend the meaning of freedom. It becomes apparent only when we see examples of events that indicate a suppressed populace. Here is what China did to make sure that the Chinese look supreme at the Olympics opening ceremony. The 7 year old girl pictured below was deemed too ugly for the song she sang and was replaced by a 9 year old pretty girl.
A certain German individual had tried equally hard many years ago to look perfect during the Olympics. Hopefully the rest of history does not repeat itself. Because if it does, India would end up being the equivalent of France. Better to get ready, because this event does provide a deep insight into what passes for Chinese "pride".
