Protest is in their blood. Even if no issues, they will still go out to protest.

Protest against no issues. Protest against no protest. Haha...

 

 

That's true.

Look at the number of protest in 20th century.

1925/26 Conton-HK riot

1967 leftist riot

1977 police riot

Beijing has to recognise that there is a vast difference in governing an open and a closed society.

In mainland PRC, once Great firewall is up, nothing can escape it.  During critical time, the most powderful VPN also fail.

Side track abit. Recently during a student exchange programme sharing by a vendor, he mentioned that subscribers of local telco overseas data roaming services can bypass China's firewall thus allowing the banned apps like Gmail and Google map to work normally. My girl proved that with subscribed Singtel data roaming service. So there is still a way haha.

That’s a well known bypass.

If your kid has wechat, better check whether it’s linked to FB (I know kids nowadays don’t use FB).

There is Singaporean student in China group call OSG.

I think for people who kept thinking china will stay status quo while the world changed need to think again. But to expect china to change immediately and accept whatever thrown at them, it is impossible and suicidal for them. It will cost millions of life.

HK will be forever be part of china. This is not going to change. So, if anyone expects they will be different and 1.4  billion people to agree. Not only that 1.4 people in china, will people in Asia agree too because it is going to affect them too. Do we aisan want to be back to the colonised days? For the rioters, they either run if they could or hide now.

The AMDK or banana-skin commentators will lament that HK used to be so free, can talk anything, can read anything, now "freedoms eroding".

But reality is that all these old HK characteristics will end and become zero in 2047. Any person with a brain in HK will know they need to prepare and adapt to it slowly by assimilating to the mainland.

If really hate it, then have to migrate to holy land like U.S.A to become 2nd class citizens.

Since there is an entire batch of a few million china-haters now in HK, my prediction is that China will cut-off this area, starve it to death economically to eliminate this group of people. Then reborn with a new batch of immigrants from mainland.

James, being thinking about 人人有企屋  idea you espoused. And those silly people flying the red white and blue. 

A person with autism or asperger's would never appreciate their mother. To them their mother is akin to a drawer where candy is kept, when these people want it, they activate it.  This apparent lack of  human respect seem to be AI, cold and inhuman.

Unless the protesters plan to change China PRC into a pseudo Russian democratic system, they will not get what they want. Meaning a security guard as the face of the Presidency with a commitee behind it to ensure the safety of Mother Russia.

CCP is not even ready to entertain the KMT to recruit party members in China. If the 中国国民党 does not have China members then it does not live up to its name...

There are many ways to solve the hong kong problem, how do you calm an autistic tantrum?

Back to the property thing, why should ccp assist or even allow hkg have a good residwntial program when they (the autistic hkgers) are everready to leave.

Moral of the story, when you take back your children after being fostered, they are no longer yours.

What ccp can do humanely is to promote the emptying of hong kong behind the scenes and redevelop after quietly and efficiently.

鬼叫你自闭, 没人帮, 还用你去害你老老母。

HK is HK because it's different. If you make HK same as Shanghai then there is no need for HK. 

It's like Silicon Valley is successful because of freedom of thought and action.  The negative is a hire and fire culture. If put in a law to control companies not firing and retrenching people because unemployed people is bad. Then Silicon Valley will not be successful anyone more. 

The funny thing is China wants to control HK more in terms of freedom of speech and thought. But what they need to control more is anti competition action. 

In USA they have anti trust laws to protect people from monopolies. 

HK gov and China are trying to control the wrong thing. 

:D

The solution for HK is very simple. 

They should implement socialism with Hong Kong characteristics in HK. 

Take all the land belonging to the rich developers and make public flats for the people to buy. 

If everyone have their own condo they won't be protesting in the streets. 

:D

 

 

Someone must have makaned Alot of money in the past lor ........

The problem is not political but economics.

Every government need to trim the excess of a capitalist system when a few individuals or companies can distort the price mechanism by holding so much market share that they can exercise monopoly or oligopoly power.

The communist government in China should not be shy about building public housing in line with their socialist values for the good of the whole country and not just a few property tycoon billionaires.

You are communists stop being shy about it. The common good of the country is more important than a few individual self interest.

Love the people not the bourgeoisie.

If China wants to control Hong Kong, today there will be no rioting, no obstruction of traffic, no throwing of China flags, no wacking of Police officers, no singing of foreign national anthems, no destruction of the MRTs, no carrying and flying US and British flags in Chinese soil etc.  People who incite against peace and stability after being arrest can still leave country....what more freedom do they want ?  In any country, doing any of those mentioned be prepared to receive harsh punishment from the authorities. They actually have freedom, too much freedom I think until things  get out of hand. Should learnt not to trumpet like foreign press, every thing China or HK govt do or even do nothing will be inappropriate.  People living during British time and now is just as bad but there are no KPKB during British time. The people just prefer being rule by some others.

Most ppl that was arrested has to surrender their travel document.

Without sufficient evidence to support travel request, unlikely court will approve it especially those filght risk.

It is funny when you have people reading western press about companies linked to china and senior staff being patriotic. While the west talks alot on such subject, their actions have already proven beyond doubt they were the ones doing such things. Just look at FB alone you will know it belongs to who.

My flight on CX last week to HK was half full only, coming back, it was like 30% filled only.

Lots of empty seats.

Even the CX lounge in HKIA, it was less crowded, but of course, overall the whole airport is less crowded due to lower number of tourist.
