EastSouthWestNorth: Hong Kong: Ten Years After The Return To China: Here’s an article (translated into english) written by a left wing Hong Kong resident who’s expected to be expelled from HK when Beijing took control, and now writes off Beijing basically friendly and honest management of HK as a political demonstration for the rest of the world.
It’s hard to know, but for those familiar with the recent history of China, this may be an more interesting and revealing question to ask yourself:
If control of Taiwan had been turned over to the Mainland (CCP) government when Nixon granted official recognition to the CCP (rather than Taiwan’s KMT), what would the 90’s/2000’s administration of Hong Kong look like?
In other words, it’s easy to second guess any benevolent action on the part of the mainland, especially when regarding HK, as a way of wooing Taiwanese to cede control of their homeland to the mainland.
