“Picking quarrels and provoking trouble" is a vaguely defined charge often used by Chinese authorities to target activists and dissidents, which carries a prison sentence of up to five years.
Would you provoke or pick???
Under my current circumstances...no. In 5 years? Most likely.
Under current circumstances...would try to stay off the radar. In 5 years - most likely accept “no one even knowing I was there (jail)”
Why the 5 year difference? Because I’d want to get some shit in place first and ensure my kids well being before I opened my mouth that the authority wanted to keep shut.
Now this is of course a mental daydream. IRL, I have no idea how I’d really respond or react to this type of censorship - also, not raised in that controlling of an environment (govt) - yet, when I was “ready”, I did walk away from a life of “religious acceptance”.
Your thoughts??? What do you imagine yourself doing or responding?
