"Who controls the present controls
"Who controls the present controls the past."
It pissed me off to no end every time I came across a news piece written by some half-wits referring to the "Tiananmen Crackdown", or the "Tiananmen Incident".
Pardon me. It was not a crackdown. A crackdown is something the police do in going after cociane dealers. Nor was it a mere "incident". What happened on this day 12 years ago in Beijing was a massacre. A senseless and savage murder of innocent civilians. Let's call it what it was, shall we?
Repeat after me. Tiananmen Massacre, Tiananmen Massacre, Tiananmen Massacre, Tiananmen Massacre...
I am not just picking on Semantics. This is much bigger than that.
"Who controls the past controls the future", remember?
