This week, Chinese government censors tried their best to stop the spread of the news jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Liu is serving 11 years in a Chinese prison for signing a document called “Charter 08,” a declaration of human rights that any American can take for granted. Dr. Lee Edwards speaks in this week’s Heritage in Focus podcast on the meaning of this significant Peace Prize award, and the state of human rights in China in the historical context of totalitarian communist regimes.
