I don't know about you, but I enjoy being able to openly criticize the government. I like being able to discuss both the good and bad parts of my nation's history(and there's quite a lot of both, seeing that I live in the United States). You can't do those things(at least to an extent I'd consider democratic) in China. Oh sure, they tolerate dissent...as long the dissenters don't remind them that hundreds of nonviolent protestors were slaughtered on June 4th, 1989 in Tienanmen Square.
Why? Because the CCP is an anti-free speech, authoritarian political party that holds China hostage under a police state. Now, I'm not trying to say that the American government has been exactly saintly over the years, because they certainly haven't. But at least they let you f*cking talk about it over here, and even have substantial change from time to time.
Authoritarian Communism is no better than Fascism. They are two sides of the same coin: oppression.
You do know that the cia's own internal documents show that there was no Massacre carried out in the square, right?
"REEEEE TANKMAN REEEE"
The tank Man was not run over either. There is video of him not being run over not that it gets played much in the western press
I never claimed that Tank Man was run over. Neither does the "Western press", because anyone who's watched the footage(which is available for millions of people to see for themselves on YouTube) knows that it ends with him being pulled off the street by a few civilians. No one claims that he was run over, because it didn't happen...so what are you on about, exactly?
Tell me, if the Tienanmen Square Massacre never happened, as you claim, why is any discussion of the protests forbidden by the CCP? If their hands are in fact so clean, than what exactly do they have to hide?
