THE CROWN OF CHINESE LITERATURE CANNOT BE GIVEN THROUGH THE HANDS OF THE SWEDISH NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE, REALISTICALLY SPEAKING . . .
The downside of attaching too much importance to the Nobel Prize is that this prize committee is trying to generate a lot of goodwill toward its prize by awarding it to a non-dissident, and later use this goodwill to bolster its support for a dissident. In effect, it lacks enough credibility in China to cause political and social turmoil in supporting a dissident, as it tried with LXB. So now, it is correcting its mistake, and is trying to first build up its respectability and goodwill in China, so that the next dissident is supports can inflict the deepest division in China.
Mo Yan is a good writer, and I congratulate him for winning the Nobel Prize in Literature. Good work! But let us be realistic. The Swedish Academy cannot be sophisticated enough to pick the really best writer of China that the Chinese would have chosen if they wanted to on their own. We are proud of Mo Yan, but we think the crown of Chinese literature should come from the hands of the Chinese people, not from the hands of the Swedish Nobel Committee. That said, congratulations again to Mo Yan!
NEVERTHELESS, the Nobel Prize committee is not a politically unbiased or fair organization, and we should not give it too much of our good will and support for awarding the literature prize to Mo Yan. Instead, we should remember its recent attempts to subvert Chinese and international opinion against the sovereignty of China's government, and refuse to acknowledge as a gift, what is merely a Trojan horse to Chinese public opinion.
