Mr. Chen Duxiu, the first general secretary of the CCP, in his " Law and free speech" point out" speech is the parents, law civilization is the son", "law is maintain current civilization, speech is for creating future civilization". He thought that " law should only constrain people's action, but their speech: because only when the speech have absolute freedom which unlimited by the law,it could possible to discover current civilization and law's disease and shortcoming. Provided that freedom of speech have to limited, then no freedom; given speech is not free, that is the speech has no freedom of breech the law、、.it is definitely impossible to coin superior civilization nor invent law." Professor Hu Shi, appeal for freedom in his whole life, assumed that " now someone say to you: 'To sacrifice your individual freedom, in order to earn the freedom of country! I want to let you know that ' To fight for your individual freedom, is the fighting for your country!" To strive your charisma is protest your country magnetism! a liberal and equal state is not build up by a group of slaves! The distinguished scholar professor Chen Yinke in his "Memorious essay on Qinghua University Mr. Yu Guangtang" highly praise Wang Guowei for his characteristics, " Only for this independent spirits, free thought, will survive for thousand and ten thousand years, living together with the heaven and earth, share the light with the sun and moon forever." He emphasis that " Independent spirits, free thought must be contest, and must be fight for life even have to face death." Above great scholars and thinkers' personal experience proved that social progress must be guaranteed by freedom of speech. Mr. Guo Guoting is a Chinese intellectual fighting for freedom of his countrymen. We believe that the characteristic of above most prominent Chinese intellectuals: Mr.Yan Fu, Wang Guowei, Hu Shi, Chen Duxiu, and Chen Yinke, complete and well-reflected on Mr. Guo. Within the Chinese community we do not know whether there is anyone who dare say that "I am superior and better than this man!" We are sure his name will sculptured into the tomb stone of memories bring an end to dictatorship and tyranny of Chinese five thousand years history, and his struggle precess and great sacrifice for the freedom and justice, also will certify that electrified our heart sentence on the memorious stone of Korean War: " Freedom is not Free!

陈独秀在《法律与言论自由》一文中指出，“言论自由是父母，法律文明是儿子”，“法律是保守现在的文明，言论是为创造将来的文明”。他认为，“法律只应拘束人民的行为，不应拘束人民的言论：因为言论要有逾越现行法律以外的绝对自由，才能发现现在文明的弊端，现在法律的缺点。言论自由若要受法律的限制，那便不自由了；言论若是不自由，言论若是没有‘违背法律的自由’，那便只能保守现在的文明，现在的法律，决不能够创造比现在更好的文明，比现在更好的法律”。一生为自由奔走呼号的胡适甚至指出：“现在有人对你们说：‘牺牲你们个人的自由，去求国家的自由！’我对你们说：‘争你们个人的自由，便是为国家争自由！争你们的人格，便是为国家争人格！自由平等的国家不是一群奴才建造起来的！’”陈寅恪在其《清华大学王观堂先生碑铭》中盛赞王国维的气节，“惟此独立之精神，自由之思想，历千万祀，与天地同久，共三光而永光。”五十年前，他在《对科学院的答复》中又指出，我的思想和主张，完全见于我所写的王国维纪念碑中，“我认为研究学术，最主要的是要具有自由之意志和独立之精神。所以我说‘士之读书治学，盖将以脱心志于俗谛之桎梏’”。他还说：“独立之精神，自由之思想是必须争的，且须以生死力争。”上述先贤的经历表明，社会的进步必须有言论自由作保障。我们认为，严复、王国维、胡适、陈独秀、陈寅恪的性格，在郭国汀身上表现得淋漓尽致。面对郭国汀的铮铮铁骨，放眼宇内衮衮诸公，未知有谁还敢说： “我比这个人好”！我们坚信，在中国五千年专制历史的墓志铭上，必将铭刻着郭国汀的名字，而他为之奋斗的历程和所有的付出，也将证明美国韩战纪念碑上的那句震撼人心的碑文“Freedom is not Free!”——自由不是免费的！
