  • China media says Hong Kong protesters are ‘asking for self-destruction’ as military assembles nearby

    Chinese propaganda outlets warned on Tuesday that protesters in Hong Kong are “asking for self-destruction,” as they released a video showing military vehicles amassing near the border of the city.

    Meanwhile, the city’s embattled leader, Carrie Lam, told the news media on Tuesday that “lawbreaking activities in the name of freedom” were damaging the rule of law and that the Asian financial hub’s recovery from anti-government protests could take a long time.

    Her comments came after Beijing said widespread anti-government protests in the semi-autonomous city showed “sprouts of terrorism,” and such violence must be severely punished, “without leniency, without mercy.”

    Socialism -> Communism -> enforcement of state authority. It’s where socialism eventually ends up as the state needs to control its revenue and source of power. Whether it is China, North Korea or Russia, the end result of socialist and communist government leads to boot on the man who fails to comply with the all powerful state.

    In China’s case, that boot was hundreds or thousands of civilian deaths in ‘89 and, that may be happening again.

    As long as there exists people with religion and a belief in God, there will never be a Libertarian state.

      They just haven't found the right guy to run it all yet. Once they do, it will work for sure.

      Religious is funny in that way. People can fall so in love with the romantic story that they completely ignore reality. Pick your poison, the tranquility of servitude or the uncertainty of freedom. I choose the latter and the former doesn't exist.
