5 thoughts on “Victims Of Communism Day”

  1. I agree on this being a day of mourning, though my personal preference is to call it “victims of Marxisim” day.

    The reason is that it’s not only communism that has a massive death toll; other flavors of Marxisim do as well, such as socialism (including, of course, national socialism.).

    1. He doesn’t claim to have been in China at the the time of the uprising. He looks to me like a clever opportunist.

      “Han worked in the Chinese Foreign Ministry after graduating from law school. He later left China to study in the U.S. After the Tiananmen Square Massacre, Dr. Han was one of the founders and the first vice president of the Independent Federation of Chinese Students and Scholars. He worked in the U.S. Senate for 12 years, serving as legislative counsel and policy director for three active U.S. Senators.”


    2. It is typical of op-eds that don’t look too closely into SpaceX’s development plan for Super Heavy and Starship. Who paid them to write it and how much was The Hill paid to host it?

      Superficially, it is concerning that so many test launches have ending with metal strew all over but not so concerning after you look into it. The op-ed is right to note the danger of China but leaves out any solutions to the problems raised.

      It comes off as a plea to keep SLS alive without saying SLS but could also relate to competitors like ULA, BO, or others.

    3. At least SpaceX keeps the debris from its flights contained in their area. I’m still not sure why destructive testing is something of a concerned. It took destructive testing to convince some people at NASA that RCC really could be damaged by ET debris. The loss of 7 wasn’t quite enough to do it. Still NASA learned from Skylab about the dangers of uncontrolled entry.
