June 4th is the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square uprising. Communism worked great in theory, but doesn’t seem to do all that well in practice (except maybe Cuba; Castro the benevolant dictator). Not that this idea of ‘democracy’ that we’ve had for the last couple hundred years works that much better, but at least we get the illusion of personal freedoms and freedom of speech. I’ll avoid a long rant, Canada’s great to live in, here’s to democracy in China. And here’s a panorama of the square.
