“The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.”

Thucydides

Today is the twenty-ninth anniversary of the beginning of the brutal suppression of the pro-Democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.  Over 3000 of the protestors were murdered by the Communist government of China.  Tyranny won that round, but I have absolutely no doubt that Democracy will ultimately prevail in the Middle Kingdom.  When it does, the heroes and heroines of Tiananmen Square will be remembered and their murderers forgotten.

  1. If the cameras and witnesses were not watching the tanks would have rolled over the tank man. The tank man disappeared.
    The protesters were the college students of the officials in power and they murdered their own children to maintain their ideology and remain in power.
    They had not counted on computers that spread the word around the world in eight minutes.
