Writes Rob Esposito:
In response to your blog post, I also recently returned from a trip to China. In addition to being more capitalist, they are far less authoritarian than us. I saw only one armed officer during my entire two week stay. I wasn't required to strip down for airport security. Conversely, I was greeted by dozens of armed officers as soon as I landed in the U.S. and told to put my cell phone away or it would be confiscated. I just laugh when people say we live in the freest country on earth.
