Yeah it doesn't want people asking anoying questions such as "why are
we not allowed to ellect a goverment?"
And even if you do bring down this firewall-do you
really think the government will just admit defeat?
No. But allowing them to keep it up doesn't help matters.
As for 1989, could the U.S or any other nation do
anything during the Tien-a-mien
massacre? No. Because each country has the right to manage it's own
affairs-even if that may see unfair to us.
"Rights" have no logical basis and thus no position in rational debate.
Countries don't go out of their way to help each
other without there
being something for >them to gain
Historicaly that is incorrect.
The U.S is not trying to bring democracy to China in
of goodwill, the former has major geo-political interests in two
emerging powers (China and India) the Americans are just trying to
achieve their longterm goals by bringing about a change in the Chinese
government so that when the U.S tries to better it's ties with that
nation, it will not be accused of supporting the oppressive Peoples'
Government. If indeed America wanted to rescue the oppressed why did
it turn a blind eye to Tibet and (more importantly) the Rwandan
In the first case it didn't have a choice (china can tell pretty much
anyone to get stuffed). In the second there was a UN presence. They
just followed your doctrien of non interfearence.
Please do not be taken in when the VoA and other
try to de-stabilize (which is in a way what this will do) the
government in the (apparent) intention of delivering the Chinese from oppression.
We are not VoA.
Anyway, even if you do bring down the firewall, they
probably have it up again in a jiffy-(the government is hardly likely
to concede defeat to the Foundation) then would not your efforts have
gone to waste?
If it wasn't for people prepeared to follow hopeless causes human
history would be very different. I doubt we would have got much beyond
Sumer style city states.
