No matter where you stand, Mao will always be making eye contact with YOU
visiting Tiananmen was the first time that I felt like I was being watched. I would guess that at least 20% of the people there were undercover guards. They looked extremely cold and bored. Apparently the chinese today dont know the details of the massacre. The chinese have been led to believe that the government stamped out a violent extremest group's illegal demonstration.
the place was crawling with these plastic army men shooting plastic guns, and carrying huge Chinese flags.
