The problem with Hong Kong is the Hong Kongese
Rice Apes. Hongers. Hongklers. "We so special we not Chinese".

These people have many names.

HK people think they are special because they lived better than people in the Mainland. But at the same time they dislike the west and Britains attempts to build up HK. They have some kind orf werid god complex and think they are better than Chinese which they are. They tell people "We are not Chinese". Clearly they are Chinese and in fact in a moderate ro poor Chinese city compared to other parts of China today.

Reddit is going mad over this.

"It's very easy to buy into narratives such as authoritarianism vs democracy, communism vs capitalism, China vs Britain/West, tight control vs freedom as the reasons for Hong Kong's decline, but that's just short-circuited thinking for the lazy.

The real reason for Hong Kong's decline, is the failure/irresponsibility of Hong Kong's elite ruling class. Maybe to many people's surprise, since its handover to China, Hong Kong has effectively been ruled by the local elites, NOT by Beijing. Sure, Beijing appoints the governor, but the governors are locals, and there was never any direct "order" from Beijing, well, sorta until recently, when Beijing began to see the failure of the local Hong Kong government.

Those elites are composed of mega real estate/business tycoons. Being the elites in the most capitalist city-state in the world gives them tremendous wealth and power, but to the disappointment of Spider-man, with that great power there's no great responsibilities. The ruling class mega riches don't see income inequality as a problem, but a badge of honor for themselves, to show how "they've made it", while all the poors are just not smart/hardworking enough. Any efforts to "appease the poor" are hindered by the ruling business-politician symbiotics, because those efforts get in their way of accumulating more wealth.

The frustration of the youth and the poor stems from the sense of inequality, unfairness and despair as they see no chances of upward mobility. Yet, even the poorest in Hong Kong is a capitalist at heart, so they are poor not because of the rich, and they certainly do work hard, then who's to blame? China, Beijing, the mainlanders, because they are evil, communist, denying tian'anmen square, yada yada...

On the contrary, when the ruling rich saw the rebellion of lower class, without knowing/admitting themselves are to be blamed, they seek help from Beijing. What does Beijing know about governing a country? More control! That's the only thing Beijing knows, and it's been working (kinda) with them. So that's how we get where we are now.

Hong Kong has always been a place where the Sunnybank Rice Apes come from to escape and live a better live here, and then proceed to tell tell us

"We so special. We from HK. HK special look at shiny lights. We built HK. Not ebil Breeteesh"

and pretend that they are not refugees from the mainland

"We not Chiners We Special!"

Well, I guess you're all about to see just how special you are.

Good luck and so long suckers!"

Re: The problem with Hong Kong is the Hong Kongese
I see the Hong Kongese trying to break away from mainland China. Too bad they don't have any weapons to support their Independence Movement.

This reminds me of the Colonies and the War for Independence.

Instead of Taxation without representation the battle cry is Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law...

It is the right of suppressed people to rise up and strike back against their abusers...

These demonstrators are ready to die for their cause...

Wonder if the US will get involved similar to what the French did during the Revolutionary War...

Re: The problem with Hong Kong is the Hong Kongese
"Because of the British rule over Hong Kong, when the mainland fell into civil war Hong Kong thrived, when the mainland starved and threw itself into immeasurable starvation and death under Mao, Hong Kong thrived. When China turned itself into a backwater for decades after mao's death and devolved into a cult of personality, Hong Kong thrived.

Hong kong, specifically because of British rule, has enjoyed a higher standard of living, a higher GDP, more rights and more freedoms for ethnic Chinese people than China itself for 100 years. The oppression of the British was still a step up from the Qing, and was an astronomical improvement in liberties compared to the kuomintang or the communists.

In short, fuck you. Compared to the fate Hong Kong would have suffered under mainland rule for the last century, the British made it a light in the darkness for Chinese people suffering in their own country."

HK will be alone. They will get no help. They cant be helped. Too arrogant.

China has cleverly built up the power and scope of Guangzhou and Shenzen ports to compete with Hong Kong's importance in that area.

Everyone with any sense or money has left Hong Kong. House prices are absolutely crashing trough the floor.
The only people left are die hard fools that think you can live in peace under Communism.

Re: The problem with Hong Kong is the Hong Kongese
Can we just get to the fight scene already? Don't you know we are all addicted to seeing these events unfold in real time like they did 18 years ago? The whole world is waiting to see TSII Smartphone Boogaloo livestreamed. I wish I was kidding. The understandings of the first TS will be better after this, we promise.
