A year of huge political change in Eastern Europe, as the people in nation after nation rose up to express their discontent with the Soviet backed governments. In China, the government stifled the popular demands for government change by a mass murder of (at least) hundreds of students.

1989 marked the end of the entrenched cold war, as the communist governments of Eastern Europe began to yield to popular pressure.

Savings & Load fraud

Full article: Savings and loan fraud

1989 was a peak year in the USA for bank failures, as the ongoing Savings and loan fraud continued to transfer money from ordinary US citizens to those committing the (cabal-enabled) fraud. Author Pete Brewton has called this "the largest theft in the history of the world", and estimated the size of the total theft as about $500,000,000,000.[1]

Disintegration of the Soviet Empire

In 1989, many nation states in Eastern Europe underwent sweeping political change in response to organised non-violent demonstrations by millions of their citizens. One exception to the rule was Romania, where Nicolae Ceaușescu's government was toppled 8 days after the military, police and Securitate shot anti-government demonstrators.

Tiananmen Square, China

Tank Man's iconic resistance to the violence of the the Chinese communist government, on July 4th, 1989, the day after tanks had crushed non-violent demonstrators nearby.

A year of huge political change in Eastern Europe, as the people in nation after nation rose up to express their discontent with the Soviet backed governments. In China, the government stifled the popular demands for government change by a mass murder of (at least) hundreds of students.

Inspired by the success of people in Eastern Europe, hundreds of thousands protested the government and demanded some proper representation. The Chinese government mobilised up to 300,000 soldiers and killed or injured thousands of demonstrators. The courage of Tank Man is one legacy of this bloodbath that continues to inspire non-violent resistance.

Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.
