Chinese Massacre

June 18, 1989

The massacre in Tian An Men Square points out the collective stupidity of Deng Xiaoping and his cronies in Beijing.

The winds of economic reform, unleashed by Deng a decade ago, have as an inevitable byproduct, a yearning for more political freedom. An open economy, in the long term, can only be lubricated by the oil of political freedom. The pro-democracy demonstrators are only a harbinger of things to come in China.
