I wouldn't have given the article much attention except for the fact it's from the pro-Beijing South China Morning Post. An opinion piece instead of an editorial so not the paper's offiical line but interesting that the editor allowed it to be published at all.

Anyway, just one person's view. I'm sure the forum is confident Hong Kong will remain one of China's premier cities for the next 30 years and beyond.

Wuhan and Hangzhou have far more illustrious histories than HK. Rather than disdaining the prospect of joining "the likes of Wuhan and Hangzhou", the author should realize it would be a honor if HK eventually finds its place there. But obviously he has zero respect for Chinese history and culture.

Anyway, Shenzhen will overtake Hong Kong in nominal GDP per capita this decade. Beijing and Shanghai will follow.

This is typical of what's wrong with Hong Kong. We, Hong Kongers have been far too generous with these foreigners, who tried to mould Hong Kong in their image.

Back in the U.K. the British people are saying when in Britain, we should assimilate and abide by their laws.

So in Hong Kong, the rule of law has been set, and because he doesn't like them, he wants to change them. Hypocrisy much.

Furthermore, you know this guy is a trouble maker as soon as you read the he WAS a Catholic priest. But so much for his faith, which was pretty quickly glossed over. That he gave up God so he can get married. If this say about this guys commitment and conviction, I don't know what will.

Then it goes on that he was trained as a lawyer in his fifties. Well I don't know about you, but they aren't many places that offer places for a bloke in his fifties to be re-trained, especially as a lawyer. Which would require best part of 7 years to fully become a lawyer. So he would be collecting his pensions by the time he qualified. Or is this just another case of the 'citizen' self taught lawyer that we hear so much about, just to make him look authoritative in the media?

No matter, this bloke should be deported with the first instant of law breaking. Just because Hong Kong lenient citizenship system. Basically anyone that has lived in Hong Kong for 7 years automatically gain citizenship to vote and have a right if abode.

If he doesn't like Hong kong. And since he is still a U.S. citizen, then he should exercise that right and take the first plane out of here, rather than staying in Hong Kong. So much for lack of freedom these guys always harping on about!

Don't even get me started with help from the U.S. consulate!

I am afraid (glad) that he has to rot in Hong Kong prison.

Article 20, 21 and 22 of the National Security Law have punishment from life in prison, 10 and 5 to 3 years. Considering he is a main character, influential figure and financier (or treasurer of the secession movement), the punishment would be minimum 10 years.

I just hope that China would stick to the words in the law.

Absolutely, in fact i think "democrazy" is the new fascism, you can commit genocide as long is for democrazy
Scream Democrazy and you can get away with anything in this world.

It's why we Chinese must prepare for the upcoming nuclear genocide.

It happened to the Jews, it could very well happen to us.

Won't be the first time we got massacred by outsiders either.
