For pointing out the really gross, unprincipled and
bloody behavior of Deng which killed thousands of
unarmed civilians, as stated by Hinton himself (a
great friend of China like you said) who was present
at Tiananmen on June 4, 1989 (he wrote a report called
"Eyewitness at Tiananmen), you direct this adjective
at me. Well, the 'misquided' Hinton has not retracted
his statements, has he?


CB: Are you saying that the protestors  in Tiananamen square in 1989 were protesting
against the experiments with the market and for socialist economics ? That was not
what I heard them calling for. The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of the market.
