An English In Kentucky

    Hong Kong isn't a big place. It does well because it's a financial center for much of Asia. The problem in Hong Kong is that the Chinese leaders want to control Hong Kong in the same way that they control Beijing. The Younger generation in Hong Kong don't want to lose what Democracy they have, and Chinese leadership is threatened by democratic impulses.


    Meanwhile it might seem to the external observer that the USA doesn't really care, in fact it appears to have given up on the whole idea of doing anything remotely constructive. This "thoughts and prayers" attitude hasn't worked to prevent mass killings in the USA. And you have to ask the question whether the Republican party has also given up on Democracy here in their homeland.
