Greetings,

I will be heading to China in a few months and I was hoping to meet some libertarians in China. Anyone here living in China or know libertarians there?

I wouldn't hold my breath, because I daresay that's what most vocal Chinese libertarians are doing... 

This is just a guess, but I bet that you could find a fair number of libertarians in Hong-Kong

At last those coming came and they never looked back With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black...

Well.  China's kind of a big place.  And it's not always easy to get around.  But I know our own David Veksler is currently in China.  (you may recognize him as your very first friend on this forum.)

What city will you be going to? I'm in Beijing, and for what its worth, the ratio of libertarians to non-libertarians among expats is roughly similar to that in the west. Among Chinese people though, the ratio is unsurprisingly smaller.

Ron Paul is for self-government when compared to the Constitution. He's an anarcho-capitalist. Proof.

Thank you for the replies!

@Seph - I will be heading to Shanghai. Are you currently working in China? I'm interested in networking!

@John James - I checked out David's profile and he's currently residing in Shanghai!! This is great, since that's the city that I will be heading to. Perhaps he can help me find a job or something...

Thank you very much!
