Our Society: On the wrong side of history

Dear John,

Chinese authorities on Sunday detained Ai Weiwei, an internationally renowned artist and an outspoken critic of the government.

In 2007, our Society established a publishing partnership in China that required approval by government officials. Which makes us wonder:

Where do we stand in the case of Ai Weiwei?
With a man who yearns to breathe free?
Or with a
government that’s trying to suffocate him?

_____
We ask because we fear our Society
has made a terrible mistake.

Chris & Terry stand tall with our new partners in China.

Any thoughts, John?
