Tiananmen Square: 24 years/ Taksim Square: 5 days

Left: Student at Tiananmen Square, 1989.
Right: Young woman opens her arms as police use a water cannon to disperse protesters. 2013.

I don't know what to say. The recollection of young people being massacred is...
But a world without young people protesting?

I don't know how many times I have to say this, but I will probably be still saying it on the day I die.

If we really want Communism to go away, and the entire world to be free and prosperous, all we have to do is Stop Trading with Communist Governments.

Just like Psychiatry. Stop feeding it.

Communism, Nazism, and any other -ism can't Feed itself. It needs money from the west.

Stop trading with it and the people In China will bring it down all on their own.

I don't know if China can be considered communist.

I'm tired of listening about capitalism and communism as the only possible choices.

These are only two among numerous economic theories.

We need a world that puts the HUMAN BEING in the center and not the money in all it's form: land, gold, paper money... blah blah blah.

It is not difficult to have a "normal" world.

Why do these rulers are always spoiling it all?

It is crystal clear to me that all we need is very simple.

Regarding "Stop Trading with Communist Governments"
People want to make money in the west, Communists have free/slave labour, so they get manufacturing costs next to zero.
I switch "stop trading" to impose import tariff/duty/taxes to make it unprofitable to manufacture in Communist countries, and it will naturally stop.
Local employment should go up.

Yes Mark.
I believe that 65% of the items I buy have the label "Made in China".

Whenever I see it I have in mind these people working like slaves.

I bought a purse via Internet, It's by a Brazilian designer and the prize was cheap.

I used it and one day I discovered inside the tag: "Made in China"
I got pretty mad.
