Chapter Summary

This chapter overviews the changes that the China tidal wave brought in Tiananmen Square, the Great Hall of the People, Central Military Commission, construction site of the three Gorges dam and a village in Shanxi province. In Tiananmen Square, at the foot of the Memorial to the Heroes of the Revolution, the few wreaths of paper flowers had wilted in the rain, but the real flowers remained fresh and colorful. The hard-liners were mainly concentrated in Beijing, in the various ministries and commissions of the Central Committee. In the end the Communist Party could only take the step it had now taken and install a regime of tight control resembling fascism. The fascist seizure of power in Beijing had been inevitable. When it was a matter of life or death, no one could restore a system of equal distribution and allow everyone enough for survival.

Keywords: Central Military Commission; Great Hall of the People; Shanxi province; Tiananmen Square
