The Tianamen Square Incident is being propagandized pretty hard in western media lately. Shit's posted everywhere, even 7chan/b/: >>/b/790842. Last week this lady comes forward to give credit to the stories that the military resisted orders to storm the square; reposts of Tank Man all week everywhere else; old sources dug up and regurgitated in every mainstream outlet.

I see what you are doing; it isn't going to work.

Either someone is trying to drum up anti-Chinese sentiment, or drive a wedge between the Chinese people and their government, or convince China to apologize for oppressing its people. None of those things are going to happen. It hasn't worked for thirty years and it isn't about to start working now.

People in the west, as offended as they may be, will not stick to this longer than it stays in the headlines and two weeks from now, no one's going to care. The Chinese people only remember that it is dangerous to discuss the matter and they will never accept any version of the story other than the party line. The Communist Party of China doesn't give a fuck, and will never apologize for something that didn't happen; that's right it didn't happen, because they erased it from history.

Also, maybe it actually didn't happen: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/there-was-no-tiananmen-square-massacre/

To be honest, I think a few hundred civilians were killed as a message to future protesters, but more importantly everyone who showed the slightest empathy was removed from their posts, disappeared, and/or 'reeducated'. Military officials, television reporters, civilians outside the action zone, everyone. There is no one left alive in China to speak against the official story and there hasn't been for thirty years. Think about this: no one under the age of thirty in China has ever heard about it; they are not going to believe you no matter how you try to prove it to them. They have all been raised to think that westerners are trying to undermine the prosperity of their country, just like they did during the Opium wars.

In fact, every military and economic conflict in which western powers were involved in China--even as allies of the Chinese government--have been recast as invasions, incursions, and attacks on Chinese sovereignty. This is also how they will see the western media dragging out the Tianamen Square Incident once again. No one in China will ever see it the way our media tells us to see it.

Nothing of value will come from drumming this up again.

We don't have pictures of bodies in the square, although we do have pictures of bodies around the square . I admit it's a moot point, but the CCP embraces this technicality. Whether it's the case that they confiscated every roll of film with pictures from the inside, then dragged the bodies out and cleaned up the blood before noon, or some other case, their point of view is that no massacre occured (inside Tianamen square). I'm not saying I like it, or that I agree, but we have to come to terms with the fact that the CCP is never going back on their narrative. The best we can do is keep it in our history books for as long as we don't use a Chinese company to publish them. We'll never get an apology, we'll never inspire a revolution, none of the things people want out of commemorating this tragedy will ever come. End of story.

Now we're faced with its secomd coming, and we're just going to let it happen again. What's the US doing for Hong Kong? Revoking it's special status, potentially ddcimating its financial market. That's punishing Hong Kong for losing to the CCP. Believe me, they don't give one shit about Hong Kong's economy. For the CCP, it's just one more toxic remnant of the colonial era to be stamped out and erased from history. Hong Kong isn't as important to them as it is to us: they know, even if they murder half its population, business as usual will come back in a few years and there's plenty of finance in Beijing, Shanghai, and Macau.

Hating on China achieves nothing, because we never really hold them to account. By which I mean we haven't booted them out of the UN and performed a direct, military intervention to exterminate the CCP--that is the only way we win.

If the Kent State students had been armed in 1970, the Ohio National Guard would have killed them all.

They were protesting for peace; they didn't want to have to carry guns, kill people, or fear for their lives--and four of them were killed for it.

Peace is not derived from armament. Deterrents are an inherently short-sighted solution: they only pause an enemy who has already decided to attack you until they acquire equal or better weapons. Best case scenario, the peace of the gun lasts only as long as no one gets angry enough or crazy enough to risk mutual annihilation--someone like that will always be around.

I don't have sympathy for animals and I'm not vegan.
I think we should convert to cultured meat protein for the sake of the environment.
We don't need this many animals any more. We keep a small breeding stock, to preserve and innovate products. The rest we grow in labs, cloned from the best specimens.

Still goes off the waste idea, my point stands on all three

1. Anything grown naturally, even farmland, is natural

2. You are technically agreeing with point 1 in this, but the money is not really a factor, space is. Organics actually sell for more

3. Waste is not an unnatural product, it changes back into the materials used to feed the cow after time

Public announcement:
If there are any videos on youtube that you are particularly fond of, you might want to download a copy of it now.

After Jan 1st the new COPPA regulations go into effect.
It will probably result in the forced removal of a lot of the content we take for granted now.

It gets worse. People change their IPs and flush their cookies and think nobody can figure out they're the same person as the last guy even though they're arguing the exact same points the exact same way. Some variation is to be expected when its two different people.

But, then again, we do live in the age of postbots and paid trolls. You'd think nobody would pay people to troll on 7chan, but the trickle of spam would seem to indicate otherwise.

7chan has some of the weirdest shit. Link spam is one thing; but then we have bots like the one that posts nothing but anti-atheist comments as if it were having a discussion with itself. Then there was monotheism divinity; I actually kind of miss that greek muslim postbot. For a while there was this "artist" who posted various images with text strings from kusaba in a tiny font embedded in them; kept getting banned for treating any board like /b/. Odd shit.

It's not just 7chan though. Every website, provided its been online long enough, gets a trickle of crap from mentally ill people.

My workplace moved earlier this year after the old building was set on fire by contractors (quality is job one), and it took a few months for the mentally ill to figure out where we moved to.
