When someone writes something and then signs someone else’s name to it, they are commiting the crime of forgery.  It is forgery, whether the misleadingly signed item is a check, a newspaper article, a letter, or a work of art.

Tou Zhen commited the crime of forgery.  For the January 2, 2013 issue of the South China Weekly, the editors had urged that China become a country ruled by law.  (The only alternative to the rule of law is – and always has been – rule by powerful individuals and organizations.)  Tou Zhen replaced the editor’s thought by praise of the Communist Party.  That is hardly the first time that praise of the Communist Party has been voiced in China.  Anything that is expressed so often and so uncritically becomes empty.

Tou Zhen thereby exposed the editors to ridicule by all who did not know that the empty words were not theirs.

You can read more about Tou Zhen’s forgery here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

This is a perfect example of how China deprives its people – and its leaders – of thoughtful, constructive ideas from its intelligent, creative, patriotic citizens.  That holds China back.

Tou Zhen’s action proved that he is not honorable, and that he is not intelligent.  If he had been honorable, he would have signed his own name, instead of trying to deceive people into thinking that the editors wrote what he had written.  If he had been intelligent, he would not have written such drivel.

Tou Zhen is not patriotic, because he would rather please his bosses than improve his country.  How can his family and neighbors speak to him without gagging?
