Resolve in political matters, no matter if it’s on the left, the centre, or the right, commands people’s respect. But business interests cloaked in the guise of ideology are engaged in suppressing BIFF. This act is an insult to the concept of “ideology”. It makes one suspicious of most of China’s so-called questions of political idealism, which are in fact merely boring, pragmatic economic disputes. The force that suppresses unofficial images is undergoing a transformation: from political to commercial. Will this process even cheapen the spirit of independence itself?
