Yao Ming: You Can't be a Virgin-Whore
"Free Beings" vs. "Chinese" Series
陈凯一语： Kai Chen's Words:
在自由与奴役之间是没有妥协与中间道路可走的。 奴役下的自由与自由人的被奴役是根本就不存在的幻觉。 中国的“文化白面”会使你产生此种幻觉。 姚明一定要在陈凯与王治郅，美国与中国，自由与奴役之间做出选择。 不选择其实只是选择了混乱，痛苦与内心良知的逐渐死亡。
There is no compromise, no middle-road between freedom and slavery. Freedom under despotism and tyranny, or willing slavery from a free man is only an illusion. The cultural narcotics from China has been purified through thousands of years to induce such illusions. Yao Ming must choose between Kai Chen and Wang Zhizhi, must choose between America and China, must choose between freedom and slavery. No-Choice is only a choice one chooses and it will result in moral confusion, pain and misery, and the ultimate withering-away, and eventual death of one's own conscience.

In the Chinese basketball circle, there is Kai Chen, there is Wang Zhizhi, there is Yao Ming. I once wrote a fable -- "Tale of Three Turtles" (in my forum)which accurately depicts such scenario. The bog turtle, the desert turtle and the sea turtle evolve from different individual choices and values. They end up with entirely different destinies.
I will paste an article in Chinese here in which Yao Ming once again had a fight with the Chinese sports authority -- a guy named Hu Jiashi who used to be my roommate in Beijing Institute of Physical Culture. Yao Ming allegedly burst into anger: "I can't take this nonsense any longer".
I hope Yao Ming knows that as long as he refuses to make a choice between freedom and slavery, between America and China, between being a human being with dignity and being a tool, a lackey for an entity that oppresses his very own individuality, he will be forever mired in misery, pain, meaninglessness. True happiness and human dignity will forever elude him.
Before Yao Ming signed the contract with NBA, he also signed, as every Chinese athlete must, a concession to servitude to the Chinese government. He must break away from that contract of slavery, mentally, spiritually and physically, in order to be free and happy. He must choose NOT to be a virgin-whore, like his predecessor Wang Zhizhi. I coined an English word for such beings -- Eunuslawhore (宦奴娼).
Yao Ming: You must fight hard to find your passion and spark for freedom, for exactly it is that passion and spark what makes you love the game of basketball. If you lose that passion and spark because of your inner demons, your moral confusion, your fear, your ignorance and stupidity, you will live to regret it for the rest of your life.
My prayer and best wishes to you, Yao Ming. Fight, and fight hard for your freedom and to maintain your integrity and conscience.
