Twenty-two years later, we still believe the Tiananmen myth

Twenty-two years after Tiananmen, and the fairy tale is still told with gusto.

On Wednesday, June 1st, 2011 I attended an event called "From Tiananmen to Tahrir Square," (TtoT) where five speakers attempted to draw parallels, distinctions, and lessons from the events of May-June, 1989 in China and the revolt in Egypt earlier this year.

Most of us, including that night's presenters, believe the Tiananmen myth, not the facts. That limits us. You can't really draw useful conclusions from what didn't happen.

1,000 Apologies, but I had to remove my actual e-mail address from this page. I'm afraid I got pretty tired of the sock puppets offering me free sexual favours. (And NO! I don't know how many of them were Russian, and it won't change my vote, I promise!) So here's one of those crappy contact forms that I really hate. Did I mention I'm sorry?
