"'Twas my intention, upon leaving mine house this eve, to engage in revelry and merriment, but I now, to speak true, feel at this moment as though I am under siege."

- Mercutio, Romeo and Juliet

I came out here to have a good time, and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

"The logic is clear — propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state and that’s wise and good because again the common interests elude the bewildered herd, they cant figure them out. […]And the point of public relations slogans like ‘Support Our Troops’ is that they don’t mean anything
[…] that’s the whole point of good propaganda, you want to create a slogan that nobody is gonna be against and I suppose everybody will be for because nobody knows what it means because it doesn’t mean anything, but it’s crucial value is it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something. Do you support our policy and that’s the one you’re not allowed to talk about."
Noam Chomsky, “On propaganda” (via inbunden)

I think this can apply to the numerous groups that devote themselves to slogans like “Support Hong Kong government” or “Support Hong Kong police ” (in opposition of the Umbrella Movement/Revolution). Democracy is always too complicated an issue for people to wrap their minds around.

Is it wrong to be young and have ideals? Society merely chuckles at the teen when he or she “falls in love”; while frowning on the same individual who joins a protest for basic democratic liberties.

The CCP and HK officials may put their hopes in waiting until HKers grow tired of the protests, but is that how a government responsible for protection of HK’s liberties and freedoms should act? If the state has such little faith in its people’s quest for political decision-making, then it should not expect the same from its people.

No matter how the corporate-backed media frames the protests as illegal activity, I still find the right to assembly and to voice opinions a measure of good governance. As such, the demands for CY Leung’s dismissal is reasonable (even if it will not change the CCP’s plans for undemocratic political reforms).
