I'm of the opinion that when you reduce people to caricatures, that's when you lose touch with the reality of who they are, and what they're really going through.

I'm all for free expression, but I readily accept there's always a limit to what's permissible under the ambit of "free speech". It's a social decision, tacitly agreed by a collective...

That's a short-sighted view. Asean has only got itself to blame, not China, for not paying greater attention to the national-security interests of mainland Southeast Asian states.
