I find myself extremely conflicted.
By now it's no longer news, but 2 singaporean bloggers were charged with sedition over extremely racist remarks they made online. See here for all the nitty gritty.
I am conflicted because, as anyone who has read this blog will know, I cannot stand racism. A part of me is fairly exultant at the fact that two people who, as they say, 'with malice aforethought' made extremely racist comments are being punished.
The other part of me is sick at the fact that there isn't even a pretense of free speech now.
Sigh. I won't be crying for them. But I might be crying for myself.
