Hong Kong: The Truth Walks the Streets!
“The revolutionary war is a war of the masses; only mobilizing the masses and relying on them can wage it.” – Mao
Yesterday, Tuesday, July 9 2019, Hong Kong’s Chinese anointed leader of the Legislative Council, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-Ngor, assured protesters that the controversial extradition bill was ” dead.” Previously she had assured the protesters that the same bill was “suspended.” The protesters ain’t buying it.
The one word the protesters want to hear, the one Chinese lap dog Carrie Lam will not utter, is “withdrawal.” A complete retraction. It is likely too late for this. The people of Hong Kong have been provided with a whiff of “hope” and a glimmer of “revolution.” Lam and China will now have to force this genie of freedom back into its bottle of Chinese dominance.
World democracy continues to go the way of the Dodo, forced into extinction for the sake of providing ever more.. to those who already have more than enough: Greed. It knows no bounds. Greed has no soul. But, greed always justifies itself..with lies!
Tiananmen Square and its massive slaughter past at the hands of the Chinese regime appears about to repeat itself. Why? Tiananmen was not a mere brutal crushing of a populist protest. It was the destruction of an example of human principal: The snuffing out of a spark that would have ignited into flame. Like protests in Sudan and Algeria, the protesters in Hong Kong now face a simple choice: acquiesce… or fight! Beijing does not care about which choice they make. China has the guns.
Democracy in Hong Kong has been simmering on the griddle of tentative Chinese permission and its steady decline for many years. What is taking place on the streets of Hong Kong today is, for modern authoritarian China, the final straw.
In Hong Kong, this day, there are many lies. The truth, however, can be found only on the streets. This reality has been thus far distorted, covered, and bludgeoned away from view or correct examination. These massive protests are not, as currently glossed over by the western press, merely about an extradition treaty with China. These protests are not just about waning democracy. What these protests are about is a renewed spark of freedom and… the long term future of Hong Kong.
