Once again, you are doing a purposeful mis-characterization of the protesters.

You turning a blind eye does not make the world blind, you carry on...

You ignore the hundreds of thousands of peaceful protesters every weekend. While you deny any and all forms of police brutality or violence against Pro-Democracy politicians. 

You rationalize your hypocrisy any way you care to OR want, it doesn't change the facts, your Pro democracy thugs is still at it, destroying and burning and physically attacking people every day and night, brutality is not a word you should be using to accuse anybody of I were you, most of all, the police... 

The truth is, the Hong Kong police has been showing more than restraint...

The elections show the majority of them want these changes.

Regime change you mean? 

Is that how it works? Just in case you don't understand what district elections means, it means just that, district representatives... 

Better luck next time...

But seeing how you and the police call dehumanize them and call them cockroaches, you don't care. 

You mean referring to the Chinese as "locusts" is a term of endearment? 

I care for cockroaches as much as I care for the roaches, they stop being cockroaches then I will care more.

Read More About Hong KongHong Kong's economic freedom score is 90.2, sustaining its status as the world's freest economy in the 2019 Index. Its overall score is unchanged from 2018, with increases in scores for trade freedom, monetary freedom, and government integrity countered by a decline in judicial effectiveness.

How about we put our heads together and fight for those millions of Americans that demands that Trump be removed, impeached and jailed like all democratic and free people are fighting for...

@third_eye

They aren't fighting for economic freedom. Lol

Read their 5 demands and tell me what you have against it.

 

They already got the first demand because of their efforts. The duel sufferage seems like a just and common sense demand.

I don't understand why this has spun into a discussion of Hong Kong. 

There was an american citizen of Chinese ancestry, a former CIA operative,  who decided to sell confidential information - possibly including the names of CIA assets in China - to the Chinese government for money. It seems all very simple to me ? 

Because it's all part of the same, giant anti-China conspiracy, perpetuated by the West in an attempt to legitimise the "covert" MI6/CIA operation, silly.

From what I gather, almost the entire HK population are paid actors for the West.

Yeah, and a murderer got away with strangling his pregnant girl friend in Taiwan because of it, two for the price of one eh?

"LOL" over that, I don't care to if you'll excuse me...

The rest of the demands means the administration should hand over the governing of the country to them... 

Yeah, "LOL"

HK mistrust being under CCP law because of how the CCP suppresses dissidents and pro democracy groups.

They would lose most of the freedoms they have.

Unfortunately someone got away with a crime because the Chinese goverment is proven to not be a trustworthy Stewart of it's people's human rights.

Also, if HK basically wants independence as you assert, then it's imperalistic and wrong to stop them.

Haha don't wish too much, I have always been pretty right when it comes to economics. 

You might want to re-evaluate that stance.

Quote

First, we show why policymakers need to focus on the poor and the middle class. Earlier IMF work has shown that income inequality matters for growth and its sustainability. Our analysis suggests that the income distribution itself matters for growth as well. Specifically, if the income share of the top 20 percent (the rich) increases, then GDP growth actually declines over the medium term, suggesting that the benefits do not trickle down. In contrast, an increase in the income share of the bottom 20 percent (the poor) is associated with higher GDP growth. The poor and the middle class matter the most for growth via a number of interrelated economic, social, and political channels. 

https://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/sdn/2015/sdn1513.pdf

They have similar findings with other studies, if I remember correctly. It's a simple concept though: putting more money in the hands of the poorest in our society stimulates an economy far more than does doing so with the wealthy (as we do with tax breaks and loopholes for elites). It's simple really. When rich people have more money they don't spend it, they hoard it. But when you offer the same monetary level of relief to the poorest, they stimulate the economy because all of that money goes right back into circulation.

It's always more beneficial for a society to prioritise the poor over the wealthy. It's why socialism works. It's why the New Deal (which, frighteningly, all Republican Supreme Court Justices have signalled they want to abolish) resulted in massive economic growth and ushered in a golden age for US wealth. The steady erosion of those principals, with the continual enriching of the most wealthy (in both our countries) via tax breaks and government hand-outs, has resulted in the largest unequal distribution of wealth that we have seen since before the Great Depression. It is simply unsustainable.

Anyways, that's just my view on the matter. I won't derail the thread any longer.

Don't break the law and you can yabber jabber all you want like the billions of Chinese, what you don't understand or refuse to accept is that China takes responsibility and culpability very seriously and the laws are laws because it's supposed to be strict, otherwise there's no point to having laws, been that way since the days of emperors and before to since the CCP, you don't like it, tough luck, it doesn't give you any rights to stick your nose in it like your Congress is doing for well over five decades.

Once again, hundreds of thousands of peaceful protesters. Endless police brutality. One Pro-Democracy politician got his ear bit off ffs.

The election results show your views are the minority.

Your "what-aboutism" is silly. In 2020 people will be able to vote on Trump.

Are you fine with allowing HK to have a vote on their demands or Independence? The CCP would be terrified to allow such a thing.

If a people want independence and to self-govern then it is wrong to stop them.

If people want human rights and freedoms protected under the law, then it is wrong to stop them.

That's basic morality

Owned by China or part of China is just semantics. It does not negate that it's wrong to deny a people their autonomy and freedom. Only CCP propganada somehow thinks "being part of China" justifies all manner of human rights violations.

China justifying denying the demands of the HK population simply "because it's China" is moronic and weak logic.

You speak ill about HK Pro-Democracy movement and protesters every chance you get. Calling them violent, cockroaches, paid U.S thugs, question the election results, deny all police violence, call their demands ridiculous, defend China in any and all situations.

And then you act like you are neutral and do not want to tell them what to do.

That is simply not true. The right to self-determination is a fundamental human right.

Quote

Self-determination denotes the legal right of people to decide their own destiny in the international order. Self-determination is a core principle of international law, arising from customary international law, but also recognized as a general principle of law, and enshrined in a number of international treaties.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/self_determination_(international_law)

What you describe is a dictatorship. If China want to keep pretending they're a democracy and that their government represents the people then they'd better read up on the standard international laws.

All things being said, the Hong Kong people have a right to choose their own country, their own leadership and anything else they want within the boundaries of international law. Anything else is unadulterated, undeniable authoritarianism, which is ****ing disgusting.

Look at the numbers, just a little over 4 million registered, about little over 70% cast votes, a margin of a shade over 50% ... Hardly many millions was it? 

What happened to the rest of the voters? 

Were they intimidated by the government into not voting or were they terrorised into staying home and not willing to risk bodily harm against the thugs and mob violence? 

You can speculate all you want about how significant the win is, the people of Hong Kong knows the numbers and reasons... 

By the way, the thugs and mob are still at it, setting fires, disrupting the peace, attacking and beating up people that dared to question them. 

Welcome to reality....

Hong Kong had a record setting voter turn-out and your argument is claiming voter supression lol. Seems like a contradiction.

It's was a total of 57 percent of those who voted.

The most telling is how much of the youth voted pro-democracy. Showing how each year the trend will get higher and higher.

This next generation in China (and across the globe) isn't buying into the old model of life, it's that simple.  They have been exposed to another model of living and are rejecting the old.  The old way, while being resisted now, will eventually no longer need to be resisted as it will inevitably fall away with a whimper as that generation inevitably dies off and those who align with that world view cease to be present.

We're seeing the vision of Buckminster Fuller playing out.

To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

The new model is present and as the old generation passes, its model goes with it.

Correct, check the numbers of the over forty and the elderly who showed up to vote... 

People were having their identity and private information exposed on social media, their kids, grandkids, their families, they brand you mainland sympathizers and it's open season, "locusts" they were called, like the police, doxxing was the rule of terror of the day.

Your kids are threatened, they are harassed by anonymous calls, your home could be firebombed as you slept with your love ones. 

If you know the houses Hong Kongers live in, you'll know the terror of getting caught in a fire is very real. 

You fellas can wax lyrical about freedom and democracy and all that. What I'm saying is this band of thugs is giving "democracy" nothing but a bad name, if you can't see that and still defends them, that just shows how shallow your definition of democracy is. 

I ain't buying your altruism , this ain't for Hong Kong with love from you, this is you guys making hell just cause you feel you can.
