=== Why would democracy and freedom of speech make China less likely to start a war?
This has been discussed to death:
* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_peace_theory
* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_Peace:_A_Philosophical_Sketch
Some arguments include:
* the people who will actually fight and die on the front can't vote against it
* dictators have huge power, so if they put it in their heads that they want to start a war, it is much harder for sensible people to stop them

=== Are you doing this because it makes you feel important?
No, I am a selfless human being, only concerned with the well being of humankind.
=== Would you be doing this if you were in China?
Not with my real name attached to it.

I will always do my best to not let my personal opinions affect my professional decisions, as that would be unfair to my employer.
=== Don't you have anything better to do?
In 1995, a beautiful thing called the Internet was invented.
The Internet gives everyone the magic power of writting something, and having million people read it for free!
This is how much time I spend on this to give you an idea:
* every week or two, someone sends me a message, I reply with "read the FAQ", and usually update
* I follow https://www.reddit.com/r/China amongst many other programming subs, and all major bad news show up there
* when something bad enough comes up, I go to https://chinadigitaltimes.net/china/sensitive-words-series/ and update <<attack,my keyword attack>>
