The Chinese need practice asserting dominance over an unarmed opponent.

There's your context for what an authoritarian government looks like. It starts with suppressing speech and ramps up from there. It's also crucial for the populace to be unarmed.

Too bad so sad

They'll never be able to "take over" like the chicken littles say when they routinely have authoritarian disasters like this. Not to mention actual concentration camps and persecution

the chinese government can't continue on its current tack.

the people have already had their first hit and they want more....

the government is not self-reflective and knows no notion of measured response.

not that I'm rooting for conflict, but if those videos are real and there is a legitimate
clash with mainland forces, it could be a catalyst for more tumult.

Supposedly they execute three to five thousand of their own people per year.

Probably going to disappear more than that this year...

China thought they could calm the masses with consumerism.

Do a degree they have.

Hong Kong used to be "free."

When I taught in China, they were brutes.

I called them on it and the lady in charge said, "What you going to do about it? You stuck here."

I looked to my friend and said, "She don't know me very well."

With three weeks left on our teaching assignment, we snuck out of the hotel after class, took off running across China and were on a plane home the next day.

Their default to troublemakers is to put the pressure on.

I used deception and evasion, which I think really surprised them.

They send me emails asking where I was.

I said, back in the USA.

They flipped their shit.

FU china!

some younger Chinese who come to the States and hear about Tienna Square don't believe it cause they've been so use to a filtered state news

You just know our progressives have a raging boner right now, watching the ultimate expression of international socialism replay itself again for the umpteenth time. Socialism isn't functional without coercion, whether that coercion occurs via social shaming and social credit scores or - failing that - at the end of a gun barrel.

Is the airport still opening?

I''ve had a bunch of connections there.

There are more people taking pictures than rioters?

It's not a riot until the girls start pulling up their tops.

Anyone other than the Prax and I been to China? Not the Hong Kong airport, the real China. I lived in Suzhou.

They fvck with people for real. You don’t wanna be that guy. The Hong Kong people know that it’s a given they’re gonna get mowed if they don’t back off but they’re hoping through the international press the international community will jump in and slay the dragon. I could see this coming since the handover.

Don’t you always whine about misquoting and mischaracterizations? That if one doesn’t want it aimed toward them, then they shouldn’t place it on others?

Yes I do. And as much "racist,racist,racist" BS the right has been subjected to lately I don't feel the least bit guilty in returning the BS in equal measure and with the same jaundiced eye.

BTW, the authoritarian Obamacare required a monetary penalty (aka monetary coercion) to work, and the left is very much debating the merits of speech codes (aka social coercion) and if it's okay to punch a nazi (aka physical coercion). So my poke is not entirely without foundation or principle.

Don’t you always whine about misquoting and mischaracterizations? That if one doesn’t want it aimed toward them, then they shouldn’t place it on others?



Yes I do. And as much "racist,racist,racist" BS the right has been subjected to lately I don't feel the least bit guilty in returning the BS in equal measure and with the same jaundiced eye.

BTW, the authoritarian Obamacare required a monetary penalty (aka monetary coercion) to work, and the left is very much debating the merits of speech codes (aka social coercion) and if it's okay to punch a nazi (aka physical coercion). So my poke is not entirely without foundation or principle.


So basically what you’re saying is you don’t “put your money where your mouth is”

From your reaction I would almost guess that you thought I was directing my comments at you in particular. I wasn't. I was just talking sht in satirical fashion, which is actually a lot less evil that the genuine allegations of racism that get tossed around here every day.

Well, that Grand Wizard slur you just threw at me personally didn't exactly advance your previous talking point. Not when I hadn't actually been thinking of either of you when I wrote the other.

You are fcking crazy. I never assume someone is speaking to me unless they address me in some way. And I don’t self identify myself as anything political.

If you want me to assume you are referring to me just say, the guy who only bangs 10’s and surfs like Rasta(will do).

If you don’t want to be a GWizard don’t talk like one. Does that really need repetition.

LOL

Long enough to know that the single most effective response to a chickfight argument is the word "no".

We tend give what we get. If your're going to talk sht to me on the personal level then don't whinge about it when I return it in the half measure which wasn't even directed at you to begin with.

You seem like you're angry or something.

You never even bothered to engage with the (impersonal) substance of my comment about socialism ultimately relying on coercion to work. You just went straight for me on the personal level. You know that I don't think you guys *actually* have a raging boner over the Hong Kong situation, right? It was just a poke.

The irony is I already said I knew it was a poke as was my comment.

Yet you still went into a rage spiral. Guess you can’t handle what you dish out dancing

I never associated with the frat boys, but I do remember the rest of that quote going downhill from there.

Anyways, do you think the Reds will be able to actually squash this little rebellion as easily as they squashed the Tibetans and Turkiks?

I don't have the best feeling for the protesters. The harder they are to squash the harder they potentially go down; their only saving grace may actually be how much more China is in the spot light to the rest of the world through the various social media outlets.

China communist party 70th anniversary is coming up in October. protesting continuing is bad for them. going in with force is bad for them. I'd bet Carrie Lam steps down and China tries to slip in another puppet without much fan fare

I did 2 nights in Hong Kong last January. While certainly different, it's so westernized that I would have a hard time calling it China.

I been to China Beijing, Shentangyu, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Macao.

Beijing more security cameras than I seen in all cities in America combined. Got in trouble taking photo of soldier. No allowance. Forced to delete images in front of military guards. Also, worst air quality to breath in world. Worse than Mexico City I felt heavy chest. Palace is amazing architecture.

Shentangyu, so beautiful but smog from Beijing ruin the views.

Shenzhen like tech city of future. 100's very large high tech companies there. From small fishing village to Silicon Valley of China.

Hong Kong, so beautiful and western as any city of US. Very friendly people, fun night clubs to dance and meet other people from all the world. Much freedom. Seen many professional models in clubs from Russia and all Europe. Also, lots of Lamborghinis and supercars. Lots of money as the financial hub of great east. Felt like very America like Chicago or NY, but more money. Hole in buildings called dragon gates. Don't block dragon path!

Macao, take fast hydroboat at night to gamble. Just like Vegas. Same big casino with some different games.
