In 1989, an unknown person halted the column of the armed troops on the Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. On the previous day, a demonstration that started as a student protest was violently suppressed by the army. In democracies, the use of brutal force has been replaced by structural violence, where the power is centered around a small economic elite pursuing their own interests. The main purpose of the political system is to maintain these power structures.
