When the Wall fell

November 9, 2019

Today, November 9, is the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I was in Warsaw, Poland, that weekend before the wall fell, and saw video news reports of demonstrators in Berlin. You had to be in other cities in Eastern Europe at that time to accurately assess what sound this felling of a wall made: the sound of freedom!

After we abandoned so many East Europeans to the USSR after World War II, they felt betrayed by the Western powers.

Finally, citizens of East Germany had had enough.

It’s difficult for totalitarian regimes when their people have had enough and that is the reason that the People’s Republic of China is worried about riots in Hong Kong: the PRC is next!
