    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.

    the multiparty system of the United States IS deeply flawed. And China's one party system and state influence in economy is exactly why China has surpassed US in most major metrics like infrastructure, innovation, sciences etc (economy soon to follow, but already passed w/ GDP in PPP) plus why they were able to lift 850m people out of poverty in 3 decades.

    America is a failed state.

    How foolish. Those people don't even realize they are being used by US and EU to form unrest in China and reduce its political and financial influence. Kudos to CIA though. A job well done.
