Xixi, coller, how? civil war? No CCP wanna give up their privilege, interest, and power.

Frankly, I do not know how. I am now pessimistic about the democracy process due to the reality in China. But from my deep inside, I surely hope so.

The fifteenth anniversary of the massacre at Tiananmen Square will be June 4th. With the memory of that event in mind, I can see why Chinese might feel that they have no such thing as a right to free speech.

It reminds me of something I think is very funny. One of my classmate, who strongly argues with me every time I make a point censuring the CCP, once said, "On the 'Tiananmen Square' thing...I've asked my father about it and he told that it was the students who took the violent actions at first, then our government 'have to' react violently...". I didn't know what to say. In fact, I had already given up convincing this stubborn guy. By the way, he was the same guy who I found did not know there had been two Germany Countries back in the cold war. Just one sentence to describe this type of'CCP defender':Ignorance leads to indifference to dictatorship.

Anybody who doesn't know that there were two Germanys--one East and one West, one Communist and one free--doesn't know his history very well.

Those who live in the states that were formerly part of the U.S.S.R. can appreciate what it means to be free better than the rest of us can.
