Actually, I think if current trends continue, I could imagine in 2030 a group of Chinese prisoners under guard working in a rice field. A passerby yells out, “What did they do?” A guard growls at one of the prisoners, “Wang, tell him what all of you did!” Wang sheepishly yells out, “We are the economic advisors who thought that American debt made for a good investment!” As the screen fades, the passerby has to be physically restrained by the guard from attacking Wang.
Yesterday, June 4, was the twenty-first anniversary 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.
“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.”
