To Dell Inc.

Dear Sir or Madam:
 
For two centuries, America had been admired by the rest of the world as the “land of the free.”  And it is this freedom that fostered the information revolution.  Gave birth to Dell.  So that Dell's employees have great jobs.  Dell's shareholders get to enjoy great wealth.  Michael Dell made it to the Forbes 400.
 
Unfortunately, not every country in the world gets to enjoy freedom the American way.
 
And there are always enemies of democracy that attempt to use all kinds of excuses to subjugate the rest of the world under their despicable ambition.  On Monday, June 8th, the world had witnessed such evil ambitions in action again.  This time, Beijing flagrantly insists that all PC makers must install Green Dam – Youth Escort on all units that are to be sold in China by the First of July.
 
I urge you to reject Chinese Communists’ demand.
 
The benefit of the Chinese PC market is not worth Dell’s reputation.  An IT firm’s role in our society, above all, is to enhance the qualities of our lives by facilitating the free flow of information.  So that everyone in the world can experience democracy by freely speaking their mind and expressing themselves.
 
It is a great irony that Beijing announced its despicable intention to dictate the information flow only four days after the twentieth anniversary of Tienanmen Square.  Without democracy, there will be no “free” markets.  Without free markets, there will be no capitalism that eventually gave birth to the information revolution and Dell.
 
Let freedom ring.
 
Sincerely,
Yi-Chang (Leo) Wang

National Taiwan University professor Kao Cheng-yan, right, speaks at a forum on the deregulation of the energy industry yesterday.

The liberalization of the energy industry is a likely solution to the nation’s current disputes over nuclear energy, the root cause of which lies in the sector’s monopolization by state-owned Taiwan Power Co (Taipower), academics said yesterday.

The administration of President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) is insisting on raising electricity prices and ensuring the commercial operation of the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant in New Taipei City’s (新北市) Gongliao District (貢寮) “to make up for Taipower’s losses,” National Taipei University economics professor Wang To-far (王塗發) told a seminar.
