Why can't I enjoy freedom? Because I am Chinese.
No, the level of dissent is not that high as you perceived. By the way, I've checked out the link you left below about the different ways of Eastern and Western education, it's really very very interesting. I love the point that it talks about the intelligence and struggle taught to kids in different cultures. Western children are taught to due their success to their own intelligence, while the Asian kids are taught to concern about struggle. I never realize the differences in such light before. But it doesn't judge a culture as good or bad by these differences, so you can't say eastern education produces students of low creativity just based on this.

Why can't I enjoy freedom? Because I am Chinese.
I am attracted by the title of this topic. It's good to hear Chinese voice in the international Internet community. The criticism to Chinese government maybe overstrong, but it serves as a warning and the sign of dissactisfaction or even resentment among the people in the nation. But freedom is a too broad issue and covers too many areas. Besides, there are still many nations in the world enjoy less freedom than China. You can also say, why can't I enjoy freedom? Because I am a North Korean... As for countries in Mid-East, the freedom can never be ensured since the state is chaotic. When mentioned of the revolution in Egypt, their freedom is even less than Chinese, the decision power is still in the hands of military ditactors.
