“Where there’s freedom, there’s no need for firewalls”

Another great translated quote on Shanghaiist, this time from Chinese actor and director Sun Haiying:

“We have been attempting to block a whole load of Western things — Western values, hostile Western forces, Western hegemony, and the Western cultural invasion. Our firewall is the world’s most advanced. Strangely though, we’ve never heard of the West trying to block Oriental values, hostile Oriental forces, and the Oriental cultural invasion. Our CCTV4 has landed in the United States, and even The Founding of a Party is being shown on screens there. This illustrates a truth: Where there’s freedom, there’s no need for firewalls.”
