      As far as history and the future are concerned, HK has been, is and will always be part of China. The only things that HK should truly treasure are its enterprising people, unique culture, institutional system with the rule of law, and infrastructure. Without these core assets, the society will not survive regardless of political system
      Hilter was selected as a leader after a democratic election. Hence, political system does not automatically equate justice, equality, and freedom.

              This is not fighting for freedom. It is anarchy. There is only one option in dealing with this crisis.
               
              Let there be no mistakes about it. Whoever governs must have that iron in him. Or give it up. This is not a game of cards. This is your life and mine. Hong Kong today is built on the sweat and blood of generations of true Hong Kong citizens who devoted a whole lifetime building this. And as long as there is still that pioneer spirit around, nobody’s going to knock it down.

                                    These unruly and wilful rioters are anarchists and are trying to destroy their city, the train machines, public facilities and society in the name of freedom and democracy.
