Young Chinese are extremely ignorant of Chinese history.

But it is not their fault.

The mass-murderers of Chinese write the fake history books in China, you see.

That is not necessarily a bad thing, one has to look forward, can't always get stuck in the past. Besides when they get older, they should be more interested in their 5000 years of history.

If they do know the history well, then they will be able to explain the 11 dash lines more clearly. Currently, that 11 dash lines does have its historical merit, just feel the Chinese are not very good at the PR of explaining it.

Tian An Men lacked coordination because it probably happened too soon. there was no internet at that time, no twitter, no facefbook, no cellphone so most people just acted alone and there was no visible leader. That is why the West didn't know how to react to this. Even if they wanted to support it, they had no idea whom to support.

Ignorance is a good thing, is it?

Their ignorance of their own history can only makr Chinese look like idiots.

You are right about one thing.
Stupid propaganda lies from a corrupt dictatorship are hard to explain.

So HUMILIATING.

Overseas Chinese or mainland Chinese? Ancient Chinese history is more interesting than Tiananmen history which is boring. Look at wuerkaixi, so happy now. If he had compromised the, the students could just leave the square peacefully.

well I think we have had more bullshit from the Corporate media again,there are some who say there was no massacre but a confrontation with violent students after days of violence including the burning of many army trucks and the lynching of many young soldiers by the Mob,maybe its a case of for Tiiananmen see Maidan.

When China Rules the World
The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order
by Martin Jacques
Penguin Books, 2012
p269

There is little demand for democracy from within China. Indeed, if anything, there has been a turn away from democracy since Tiananmen Square. A combination of a fear of instability following the events of 1989, the disintegration of the Soviet Union, and what are seen as the difficulties experienced by Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan as democracies - and also the Philippines and India - have reinforced the view of most Chinese that this is not an immediate issue: that, on the contrary, it is liable to represent a distraction from the main task of sustaining the country's economic growth. Implicit in this is the not misplaced view that any move towards democracy is likely to embroil the country in considerable chaos and turmoil. This is a key reason why democracy, for the great majority of Chinese, commands little support.

So you CCP think ignorance for Chinese is good if it hides CCP mass-murders of Chinese?

How predictable.
