Oh China! After Liu Xiaobo was announced the Nobel Peace Prize winner you just couldn’t have a good nights rest could you? As if imprisoning the peace prize winner, detaining his wife, and censoring the media wasn’t enough. You now have your own peace prize: The Confucius Peace Prize.

The first time winner is Taiwanese politician Lien Chan who some would see as a dog to China. (That is how is depicted in the video)

I find this whole ordeal funny as I think the Nobel Prizes were already starting to lose their significance after Obama received one. If you check Wikipedia, Liu Xiaobo is not really that worthy for the prize. The part about him being in support of Bush’s Iraq war made me really wonder…

Regarding peace in China, he mainly just writes stuff about democracy and an end to the one-party rule in China. The fact is not much people knew about him even outside of China. But by making such a big fuss, China has catapulted Xiaobo into the spotlight.

As the saying from Confucius goes: “If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?”
