During the Four Modernization's every family got their own plot of land and they got to choose what they wanted to do with it. Deng modernized many things including, agriculture, industry, science and technology, and military.
In 1989, thousands of people came to protest for freedom and peace. Deng ordered the government to take action, so the government took the tanks out and starting shooting at Chinese civilians.
The day after the Tiananmen Square massacare the tanks came back to get rid of the rest of the protesters. When Chen Yong saw the tanks heading for Tiananmen Square again he knew he had to stop them. He jumped in front of the first tank and the tank tried to move around him. Chen Yong sprinted to move back in front of the tank. The first tanks top opened up and Chen Yong saw his older brother, Chen Yong yelled, "I won't let you do this." His brother said, "You don't make that decision!" People came running over and pushed him away from the tanks into a van and killed him. He saw that his futute was going to end up like this but Chen Yong, knew he died as a hero.
