    When Britain handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997, Chinese leaders agreed that Hong Kong would be able to keep its economic and political systems, including some of the civil freedoms denied to China’s citizens on the mainland, for the next 50 years.

    Although Hong Kong still has nearly 30 years of semi-autonomy left, China has started tightening its grip, and many believe it is chipping away at Hong Kong’s freedoms. In this episode, I explore how Hong Kong is dealing with the looming deadline and China’s premature moves.

    We've released a video explaining the recent demonstrations rocking Hong Kong, as citizens there protest against the government's proposed bill that would allow extradition to China. To get the latest on the current situation, you can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/6_RdnVtfZPY

    The "border" is the dangerous legacy left by the drug trafficking state Britain colonizer. Beijing has been very pragmatic and reasonable. But some outliners in Hongkong are acting like separatists, seeking to change the status quo, which deeply trouble dear fellow Chinese in mainland.

    China really does not need a zombie border within itself.

    I respect Hongkong people's peaceful assembly and protests. I condemn the mobster violence. The goals and demands need to be constructive and free and clear of foreign influences.

    The problems in Hong Kong are very complicated, including various reasons for people's livelihood, justice, education and American intervention. The author only talks about the superficial reasons

    China be like "oh so now we don't really need this city so we'll just make even more effort to grasp it" - sounds illogical at first sight. Why are they doing this, even? It's 3%, is it really worth this much violence? I think I'll never understand politics

    it is passed time for the west to try and divide china. hong kong will be part of china in 2047 , then there will be taiwan by peaceful mean or by force it is WHEN not if. china is a super power and getting stronger as years passed. usa cannot stop china in 10 , 15 , or 20 more years in conventional war. why trying to devide china and causing war instead of making money with china.

    I watched these videos when they were new, and it inspired me to take a trip to visit a friend in Hong Kong, because I knew there was a time limit on being able to take that trip. By time I took the trip in August of 2019 it was a dramatically different situation then when I planned it. Coming back to watch it again is just... unsettling in a way.
