The religious and cultural tensions the West faces are "payback" for slavery and colonialism, a Chinese state-run newspaper said Tuesday in the wake of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper — which often takes a nationalistic tone — dismissed the weekend's huge marches in Paris and elsewhere as "painkillers" that cannot halt the intensifying "clash of civilizations".

    And I'm certainly happy with social issues such as what should be fundamental human rights taking up a fair proportion of the stories. Your Rights Online, as it used to be called, was definitely a techie-friendly subject, but I don't see Your Rights As A Journalist, Or As A Member Of The Public, To Express Yourself, as being fundamentally different a subject. Only the medium has changed, it's the same core issue. "On a computer", if it should be unimportant in an idealistic patent context, should also be unimportant in many other contexts too.
