October 1st is the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. For the Hong Kong government, it would advertise that Hong Kong is writing a new chapter in its history under the National Security Law, “from chaos to rule, and from rule to greater prosperity.” Meanwhile, the Hong Kong police said he will deploy 8,000 police officers on October 1. This is in contrast to the “rule” and “more prosperity” propaganda.
Constant denial of the ongoing wave of immigration from Hong Kong and constant letters from top government officials to foreign media protesting their “false reports” about Hong Kong, a sweeping regression of Hong Kong’s past3 Years mean that “loyal trash” (a name coined by Beijing scholars to refer to Hong Kong’s incompetent, pro-establishment politicians who flatter Beijing without doing anything useful) It shows the impossibility of running Hong Kong and achieving anything significant.
Hong Kong has changed
Prior to 1997, Hong Kong’s last governor-general, Chris Patten, said: [now Beijing], but may be transferred little by little by some people in Hong Kong. ”
Unfortunately, this prophecy came true after the 1997 handover from Britain to China. Social elites know that communists demand explicit allegiance in exchange for a safe “bowl.” Citing Xi Jinping has become a part of everyday life, selectively praising the national security law that has devastating consequences for Hong Kong.
The education sector is undoubtedly a big part of the disaster. Since 1998, the Education Bureau has been obsessed with distorting history, and its latest achievement was recruiting a group of students to produce a musical to celebrate Communist China’s National Day. Its content distorts a prominent essay by Liang Qichao, a well-known contemporary Chinese constitutionalist. Communist Party) fears that it may hint at Hong Kong independence. With so much flattery and taboo, how can Hong Kong find a way out?
An open and transparent political environment is a prerequisite for a cosmopolitan city. But the Chinese Communist Party disagrees. To this day, they still run a secret Communist Party in Hong Kong, outside the law and not accountable to Hong Kong residents.
According to veteran Hong Kong journalist Chin Cheung, there are 400,000 such underground communists in Hong Kong. It is worth noting that the Liaison Office was the first place Liang Chunying went to thank her supporters after she was elected Chief Executive. The Liaison Office is the de facto government of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Government is only its administrative body. The party’s media are the Daegu and Moon Weibo newspapers. Politics in Hong Kong have become very uncertain.
Red lines are everywhere, subverting the rule of law.Hong Kong government remains silent on UN translation request report A Chinese translation of Hong Kong’s human rights under the National Security Law. Critics believe it was a deliberate attempt to prevent the report from circulating to the public.
Since the Hong Kong government now primarily serves the Communist Party of China (CCP) and not the people of Hong Kong, it is known that a Candidate Screening Committee has been set up to screen Legislative Council candidates that the regime does not like. explained.
In Hong Kong, the “leftist” has become established, and civil servants compete to see how far they can be “leftist” in order not to make mistakes, and as a result, they become “extreme leftists.” Compared to the 1967 riots against colonial rule, at that time pro-communist bookstores could sell Mao Zedong’s books and left-wing schools could preach their political beliefs.Hong Kong is now banned. It is a city of literary books, and talking about democracy and freedom is taboo in schools.
Since 1997, the Hong Kong government has adopted nepotism as a guideline, and most of the restaurants prosecuted for violating COVID regulations have been “yellow” (i.e., support the protest movement). “Political neutrality,” a core value of civil servants that worked so well during the colonial era, has been shattered by the Left and replaced by “politics in command.”
The results reveal the most underlying causes of Hong Kong’s governance failures. It treated Hong Kong residents the same as mainland China. There was a time when the Chinese Communist Party thought that hard-line measures against Hong Kong would not work.
The former director of the Liaison Office, Jiang Enju, once said that Hong Kong is a very difficult book to read and understand and should be taken seriously.
Contrary to the words of Hong Kong’s first Chief Executive, Kianhe Higashi, at the inauguration ceremony of the Hong Kong government, the people of Hong Kong are in charge of their own destinies and are subject to reforms that start from childhood. A recent effort by left-wing newspapers to wipe out colonial nostalgia stemming from public tributes to the late Queen Elizabeth II is actually trying to strip the character that made Hong Kong.
In addition to the wave of immigration from Hong Kong comes a wave of “return” (a term referring to a trip to Japan, the first destination for residents). On the eve of the Chinese Communist Party’s National Day, as Hong Kong eased her COVID-19 restrictions, people flocked to book trips to Japan. This could be seen as a form of referendum for the Communist government.
