Exploration 4 from Bryson
The most important thing from The Tiananmen Square protests, was the fact that the government went as far as searching hotels and controlling the documentation and then hiding it from the public. That is an obvious sign that the government knows what they are doing is wrong, but was now trying to hide what they were doing from the public. The casualties were possible one of the most disturbing and unjustified outcomes of this. A government that people one believed in-- betrayed them. It was to me, just as unjustified as the Holocaust. The number of deaths was not as high but that does not make it any better, these were unarmed, innocent civilians who had their life taken because they believed in a better government and a better form of civilization. The outcome of that day is horrific and violated moral code, not to mention the violation of human rights... especially innocent unarmed citizens.
