    it's going to depend on how these terms are defined. if honor and pride are being used as synonyms for honesty and dignity, that's one thing. but i don't think that's how lily was referring to them.

    Fair enough. Although it's worth noting that many cultures have this ambiguous, double (+ & -) meaning to their corresponding concepts of pride and honor (though maybe less so for honor). From what I have seen, all of them suffer from difficulty in teaching the differences between the two versions and imprinting their youth on the desired side of the fence.

    MS, you're right.

    You do suck at history. But that's ok!

    As for the guy with balls who stood in front of the tank, did he ever get out of prison? (That was the Tienanmen Square uprising...)

    Most believe he was killed.

    The 20th anniversary of Tiananmen Square movement is coming up this June.

    This June? Twenty years, god I'm getting old... It will be interesting to see how much military and police they put out there. I remember being at Tienanmen during some government meetings; the police and military presence is impressive.

    It seems a lot of suffering occured during those times. I hope the best for china, as well as the rest of the world. It seems that we all have a bloody history.
