The wisdom of Ai Weiwei | Change Leadership Watch |

"Artist Ai Weiwei is perhaps China's foremost dissident, unafraid to confront the masters of Beijing, ...enduring prison, beatings and other tribulations." 


Here is Ai, then, in his own words:

"Without freedom of speech, there is no modern world, just a barbaric one."

"Everything is art. Everything is politics."

"Nothing. Jail is about nothing."

"I was born radical."

"I don't want the next generation to fight the same fight as I did."
