央视九月二十八日到办公室采访我,我说:采访你们也不播。央视小记者说:会播。问:什么是爱国?答:努力批评政府的一切错误,以让这个国家中的人民生活的更好,享有更多的权利和自由。问:怎么证明爱的深度?答:批评的越重,爱的越深。放欲政府滥用权力的,恰恰是最不爱国的行为。结果是没有播出。 CCTV interviewed me in my office on September 28. I said, “Even if you interview me, you wouldn’t broadcast the interview.” The reporter said, “We will.” Q: “What is patriotic?” A: “Making an effort to criticizing every mistake the government makes, so that people in this country can live better, and enjoy more rights and freedom.” Q: “How do you prove the depth of your patriotism?” A: “The heavier the criticism, the deeper the love. To indulge the government in its abuse of power is the most unpatriotic behavior.” This interview was not broadcast. http://weibo.com/1182389073/AcrhLz4ny?mod=weibotime
