Monday, April 8, 2019

Because movements are fundamentally about responding to and creating positive change, that’s a good thing, even if we sometimes find ourselves in a defensive position. Change within our sector is healthy — particularly when it allows deeply held shared principles to assume new forms.

30 Years After Tiananmen: Memory in the Era of Xi Jinping

by Glenn Tiffertvia Journal of Democracy
Monday, April 1, 2019

No event in its modern history haunts the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as deeply as the protest movement that swept the country during the spring of 1989. Around the world, millions witnessed a tragedy unfold that is now indelibly linked to the square that was its focal point, establishing Tiananmen as a metonym for a government’s punitive war against a remonstrating citizenry.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

In virtually every country, antitrust agencies and regulators characterize US tech giants as monopolists.
