Young protesters in Hong Kong are directly challenging China’s communist rulers. Inspired by kung fu legend Bruce Lee, their leaderless structure is frustrating efforts by the authorities to stymie them. It could also undermine their movement..
Do we feel sympathy watching a once free society slip into the grips of an oppressive and totalitarian system now ruled by a communist dictator for life in Chairman Xi Jinping? Sure we do. But they made these choices decades ago… now they have the consequences.
If Hong Kong tries to resist Beijing, they will be crushed. Hundreds more will be arrested and disappeared. Thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, will be killed. There is already a ongoing flight of wealth out of Hong Kong as the smart and wealthy position their assets overseas to survive the arrival of Beijing’s storm troopers.
The future for Hong Kong is dark. It is not going to end in anything resembling what exists today. Hong Kong will be Beijing 2.0, and will be entirely dominated by Chinese authoritarian rule. The difference in 2019 is the speed at which it is happening.
Things are speeding up now in direct proportion to the severity of the U.S. decoupling our economy from China. As the Chinese economy weakens, Beijing will get more desperate.

Ok, this is a Major #! Event in the world and for the life of me, I’ve scrolled through this site and get barely any info on ANY UPDATES on this!!! WTF!! Talk about complete ATS BLACKOUT! 😏😡 This should it own Topic!
Read the entire story and you can see how this will effect the rest of the world, in my mind, this will create a firestorms around the world as protests like this aren’t being covered much as they haven’t much on Paris yellowjackets either IMO-dont block me, it’s just my powers of observation.
I have much to say about this event but feel restrained due to its nature and the the severe lack of info on this site.
