I would want the government to leave me alone. It's an absolute disgrace that people can be evicted from their homes by governments. By what right does this happen? Of course it's one of the Chinese governments lesser crimes, but it's still a crime. I saw this guy being interviewed on the news a few days ago - his mother had been evicted from her home to make way for building in relation to the Olympics, and the government had promised her compensation. When the compensation didn't materialise, she asked for permission to stage a peaceful protest - so they locked her up. It seems now would be a good time for the heroes of the Water Margin to be reincarnated!
