Whose Side Are You On, Boys? An Uncomfortable Challenge

I once commented on the Liberal Democrats Facebook page:

I disagree with anyone who says or who (to me) appears to imply, that the Liberal Democrats have a responsibility to promote freedom and equality around the globe. The Chinese authorities and civil society are not doing anything to interfere with us; let’s accord them the same courtesy. We won’t achieve anything with gunboat diplomacy, even if the ‘gunboats’ are human rights evangelists and not soldiers.

Ultimately, people are going to have to decide whether they really believe in freedom, or whether they want to export freedom at the point of gun, as a form of state terrorism.

Which option do you find more congenial?

Here’s Billy!

There is no middle ground, and there is no third option.
