Judge Kwok asked the five "when you would leave the prison of your own mind".

The above a line that would seem unbelievable in a dystopian comic book, but is real life in the CCP-ruled world. And some still wonder why many in Taiwan want to remain independent of CCP control, watching what's happening in Hong Kong, once one of the globe's most vibrant places. And some wonder why Ukrainians are fighting so hard to prevent a return to the days of the USSR and the Russian form of totalitarianism. But maybe if the CCP put the screws down tighter on Hong Kong, some might be able to eventually escape the CCP's jackboots and jails to go somewhere else where they can add value to another nation, like so many Chinese families and individuals among other oppressed peoples have done around the world for centuries.

So sad to see headlines that one would expect on parodies actually describing something happening in Hong Kong. The worst thing is that this is not likely to be the last time.

The Chinese government side immediately recognized themselves truthfully depicted in the children's book as one of their predator familiars they closely resemble. The guilty never like to look on their reflection in a mirror.

Governments who lock people up for being ‘anti-government’ should be universally condemned. Hong Kong has been stolen.

Well, I didn't hear a single word from western countries when the Spanish government punished politicians and others from Catalonia. One politician was even extradited from Belgium. But then again, Spain is part of the west, so different standards apply.

Brainwashing children is a terrible crime but these cartoons look pretty harmless. They should be more concerned with religion.

What do you expect of the CCP government?

So, how about Hong Kong?

I said ‘Governments’, you decided to single one out.

In the end i think they have themselves to blame for all of this. Their own police force and officials allow this to happen. Their society is so divided that they willingly gave themselves to the mainland. The whole industry sector is still operating normally which means most are okay with things and not willing to fight for their freedom. While the rich ran with their wealth. So why should we care anymore what is happening to HK? Unless they themselves unite instead of targeting each other, true changes will never happen.

All talk is "brainwashing". The CCP cannot allow any talk that isn't pro-CCP, because anything else is subversive. Weak. Very weak.

Par for the course from a Communist government overseen by Winnie the Pooh.

How many schools in China have newspapers? Zero. Because the CCP is afraid that students will write about a school team that didn't "win" everything, every time. All news, even for jr high schools, as to be pre-approved by the CCP. Journalism isn't taught in China. The idea of independent though and stories that weren't created by the "Wolf Warriors" aren't allowed. All news media is state media in China.

Be cause the CCP is afraid. Brainwashing of kids can only be performed by the CCP. That was my point.

While I support Catalan and Basque independence, they are different situations from that of Hong Kong. Spain stopped a regional succession movement and arrested the leaders. Spain did not make the basic rights of Catalonian Spaniards illegal in the way the CCP took away fundamental rights of the people of Hong Kong. Spain has not censored what the people of Catalonia can read or view on TV or social media as China has in Hong Kong (and everywhere else in China for that matter). The do not arrest Catalonians for arguing in favor of regional autonomy or even independence from Spain. Even at the height of the ETAs war to gain an independent homeland for the Basques Spain never arrested the band Negu Gorriak (find out who they are and the lyrics of their songs) or even stop them from playing concerts in Spain.
