Failing Hongkong Protests

The ongoing ever-violent protests in Hong Kong

are doomed to failure.

It would have received support from the other countries

had the protesters not invaded government offices

and destroyed private properties.

In so doing, they demonstrated thet they will not follow

the democratic principles that they want to be subjected to.

On the other hand, it is the the autonomous government

of Carrie Lam that has shown it upholds democratic principles.

Carrie Lam has allowed the freedom to protest without

stopping it with armed military forces.

The protesters are provoking the police to be violent, though,

but the police have been heroic enough to hold back.

And so does Beijing.

The effort to determine with undercover Chinese as

to who is funding the protests have failed.

Meantime, Beijing is not cutting off the food exports to Hong Kong

because this is also one way to drain the protesters of the funds

that they are sre spending for food.

Meantime, it has taken Regina Ip’s “silent majority”

too long a time before it starts a counter-protest.

Hong Kong’s  financial  success,  and Beijing’s  too,

is not democracy, but an autonomous free port for all nations.

Tourists go there to buy things at affordable prices.

Let us not listen to the young people

who have yet to be concerned about backbreaking work

of earning a living.

Like babies, they cry because they need something.

They do not know what they need exactly.

They only know that they need something.

And they cry only because they NEED something.

Worse, they cry because they WANT something

which is out of reach.
