This is a curated list of articles, seeds, photo/video posts and comments for the past two weeks. The series will combine the use of Newsvine's "thumbs up" as well as the minds of the Newsvine team. As always, meta articles about the proper use of the site will be ignored for this feature.
You missed a busy week. It's time to catch up.

'Did you know that America has turned on its head? Some poor woman who had not stolen anything, or killed anyone has been IMPRISONED. IMPRISONED for her personal beliefs. She is a political prisoner of the state. We. Now. Have. Political. Prisoners. In. America. It is crazy.’ Then he shakes his head for dramatic effect.

so, that makes it right? Is that your point?. I'd say that NONE of them should be allowed to get away with it. In this case, she's been caught squarely. They've already noted quite a number of classified emails from the ones she turned over. If anyone else did that, they'd be in jail.
I am so tired of this ridiculous, but, but. some other person did it baloney. I don't give a darn who else did it, she is caught, she should be punished. If somebody else did it, and it's proven, they should also be punished. Keep punishing until nobody is doing it anymore.

What China doesn't get is that military strength is nothing compared to the influence of pop culture. America didn't bomb and threaten its way to the top (sure those things helped). Instead, we got to your kids in Europe, U.S.S.R. and East Asia via music and movies.
China has none of this. To the world, they are a blank culture. They don't originate ideas, they steal them. They don't manufacture greatness, they composite cheapness. Quantity over quality in every aspect of their lives.
