Understand the motherland
From China Digital Space
了解祖国 (liǎojiě zǔguó): understand the motherland
Ai Weiwei once stated, “If you hope to understand your motherland then you have already entered the path of breaking the law” (你如果希望了解你的祖国，你已经走上了犯罪的道路).
A plausible interpretation of Ai’s comment is that in order to truly understand China, one needs access to materials that have been censored or suppressed. In doing so, you are placing yourself at odds with the laws of the land.
