To say, or not to say; allowed to say, or not allowed; what to say, what not to say; say in private or in public… all these are our accustomed life experience, which relates to our own personality, spirit and mentality, as well as to whom and in what situation are we speaking, and naturally involves culture, politics and ideology.
Today, the Internet seems to release an unprecedented democratic space, where anyone can convey their views and emotions with abandon on different virtual platforms. Despite all kinds of restrictions and blockade, we are still flooded by pervasive information and sounds. As we have seen in the always excited Moments, it seems that except display ads and various shows, the only things left are tirelessly meetings, discussions and dialogues. We criticize the system, dispute current politics and discuss literature, history and philosophy, with endless inside stories, gossip and cross-talks. Where there are lives, there are words, which are a mingling of good and bad. Perhaps, it is exactly at this time that we need to analyze and clarify these voices, including necessary reflection on our own words, but what calls for more consideration is that what the real ictus of this era is.
