100,000 Demonstrate in Burma

100,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Yangon yesterday in protest over the several years that SLORC, the military junta in Burma, has had to create the promised democratic reforms and in protest over the poor state of the managed economy, . These demonstrations have run seven days and started off small. The last three days they have grown ten-fold per day, with 1,000 monks marching Friday, 10,000 on Saturday, and Sunday 100,000 people demonstrated.

This speaks to how communist planned economies work — Hugo Chavez might want to take note before his rule crumbles under the reality that Capitalism is a primal force of human nature –it cannot be overcome by state dictate.
