Hong-Kong Protests

A very interesting article. I particularly liked the bit where he claimed the majority of HKers supported a change in the electoral system so that directly-elected legislators became a small minority and the vast majority would be appointed by the CCP directly or indirectly.

Step 1: Change the political system so that your opponents cannot win, even if they have majority support from the public.
Step 2: Change the definition of democracy so that it no longer matters that directly elected seats are a minority, provided the public are "satisfied".
Step 3: Intimidate people to not cast blank ballots or express their dissatisfaction in a fashion that could show the majority are unhappy.
Step 4: Create an atmosphere were only a pro-government minority feel confident enough to express their opinions.
Step 5: Pat yourself on the back for ensuring the public are "satisfied", ignoring the fact that the majority are staying quiet out of fear.

I guess Hong Kong is currently in stage 3. I wonder how long it will take to get to stage 5.
You forgot Step 6: Majority becomes patriotic because it's just too depressing and difficult to be a traitor vaunting the values of a dead British Empire so they get hip with the new patriotic trend. Those too old for change can watch their kids' "rebellious" attitudes against their treasonous upbringing.

I know it's troublesome with so many steps, but the CCP cares about Chinese people and their lives so they can't just do it American style with a military occupation killing the opposition and implanting American bootlickers into the highest places of their government.

"Why you cant just let the CIA continue its job inside the HK? Why you want to drive out the job creator CIA out of business?
So many people's livehoods depend on getting that sweet CIA to live comfortably

Whats a bit of violence here, a bit of violence there, and a mix of an independence movement in return for getting paid by the CIA"

Maybe thats all there was, after all the criteria were that the applicants had to have some form of qualification which implies some level of intelligence.
Trudeau is the king of virtue signaling.
There are something like 300,000 Canadian citizenship holders in HK. If they aren't all rushing back, then the truth is plainly obvious.

Generally Canada is seen as a great place to live, terrible place to make money. This is why back in the handover-era, there were all the "astronaut people" where the fathers all stayed in HK, while the family left for Canada. High taxes, language/culture barrier in business, small population/low density/less opportunities, smaller financial industry. However, the education system really is a big draw, no tuition for high school, low tuition for university, plus low level of competition. You don't even need elite grades to get into a internationally renowned Top 50 university! On top of that, you can enjoy a fairly spacious living accommodations, but you probably have to give up the housekeeper.

Who is that guy? I am not an old member here so I dont know him.

Is he a Gordon Chang follower?!

So you're a newbie. Well, if that's the case I don't want to spoil your "life experience learning curve". It sure was a hell of a revelation for me to learn that there are people with that kind of mentality amongst us.

Anyway I'll leave it to you to find out in your own way. After all, it's not the destination, it's the journey as they say.

Do you know Olga Korbut? Same except mental.

Lol. You are naughty and 'bad' lol. Korbet was good, and so was Nadia Comaneci. But i think the best (simply because she was in the shadows of these two greats) is Nellie Kim. Despite being in the shadows, she managed to get herself quite a few medals competing with those two. Of course, she is also half Asian.

Of course all three have nothing our our dear member here in turns of gymnastic of the mental variety.

And your point exactly is what? That Hong Kong ought to be the same as it was when it wasn't a "Democracy" under the British rule and was only pushed and cultivated when the British couldn't keep Hong Kong in perpetuity? As far as am concerned China can change the laws and provisions within it's own territory and sovering land whether you Mr. T like it or not. As for the hilarious notion that "the majority are living in fear" the majority of roaches that tried to destroy Hong Kong not to mention hurting their fellow Hong Kongers along with their plea of "help" from the west, so am rather sanguine about that aspect. They can stay fearful and ought to be. There should be no haven and safety for those criminals period and since you sound like you are of the opposite view then have them welcome into your neck of the woods.

Welcome to our members modus operandi. Selective memory loss and cherry picking, couple with an healthy dash of mental gymnastics of the Olympian variety. And Presto, you have your ANTI-CCP narratives.

Meanwhile the rest of us carry on in the real world:

Remember the lost eye girl? Will, remember her taking out an injunction to stop the police obtaining her medical records! Lol

Here, she lost another court case, and have to pay cost! You can't make this sxxt up.
