Just another city in China

Hong Kong continues on its path towards the inevitable, becoming just another city in China. Those rights that were promised are largely gone, government departments and universities were subverted a long time ago, the courts more recently, and now people like Jimmy Lai are being arrested. In the midst of all that, my friend Long Hair was stabbed. Luckily he seems to be doing ok. What a shame to see that place fall apart like that. Maybe the virus fallout will be the thing that brings down the CCP, although I wouldn’t bet on it. They’d rather take the country back to the stone ages than relinquish power.
