I just saw this caption in an article from China's official press, "The Source of the Human Rights Friction: 1989 Pro-Democracy Protests and the Brutal Massacre that Followed." I had no idea that China was that open. I thought that, that was something which was simply not discussed. I assumed that it was one of those things that "hadn't" happened. I mean, you won't hear many National Guardsmen discussing Kent State, the British don't often bring up the Boer war, the Japanese heavily edit their textbooks, and the People's Republic of China describes government actions of all of 16 years ago as a "Brutal Massacre." I'm astonished.
