The study that liberals used to claim the drug doesnt work- "substantive concerns" about the data and database.

Oh my, this liberals vs conservatives thing, don't you guys realize that this binary, one vs one vision is only used to keep you from changing the system, keep you in the track of one or the other but not anywhere else, keep you busy fighting rather than changing...

How is this related ? We don't care how it was under the British rule, we care about today and tomorrow.

It's very relevant. If the Hong Kong government complies with Article 23 of the Basic Law by either passing its own legislation or annexing the Chinese security law, which goes no further than the colonial government ever did, how can any fair-minded person accuse them of abolishing 'one country two systems' or violating the Sino-British Joint Declaration? Anyone doing so would be a hypocrite in my opinion

I am sorry I still don't see the logical link with the previous colonial government.

accuse them of abolishing 'one country two systems' or violating the Sino-British Joint Declaration

Because it's not a baseless accusation, it's a fact, the NPC approved the plan to impose its own national security law to HK, overriding the local government institutions, therefore abolishing One Country Two Systems.

During British colonial rule the sedition laws were no less draconian, both on paper and in practice. Many newspapers critical of the colonial government were shutdown and their editors jailed, particularly after the 1967 riots. In Hong Kong it was illegal to: "bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the person of His Majesty, His heirs and successors, or against the Government of this Colony or the Government of any other part of His Majesty's dominions or of any territory under his Majesty's protection".

How is this related ? We don't care how it was under the British rule, we care about today and tomorrow.

The majority of Hong Kong residents want the security law, because of the fear of those rioting and causing a disruption to their daily lives. It is not stifling free speech or the right to peaceful protest. So what is wrong in having a security law that targets, subversion, terrorism and foreign interference, isn't that what all countries would wish for. laws,https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_Basic_Law_Article_23

And you got that "majority" number from ?

Have you looked at the last election results ? 80% of the seats became pro democracy.

bass4funkToday 09:33 am JST

Trump doesn't include other countries when he deals with China. It's a waste of tremendous leverage he could have, but just lacks the skill to build coalitions.

Not really because most countries won’t rock the boat when it comes to China, so Trump should steamroll along if the other countries won’t develop a spine to take China on.

Europe has been weak and wary on China, but I believe they are on the edge and with a little help could do something about it. Sadly the current US is also trying to get Europe down and won't seek for an alliance against China.

Everything is going as planned, they fueled the protests for months, escalating as much as possible with an aggressive police and ignorance of local demands. They now can act as "out of patience" and need to take over to bring peace back ... This is how the early end of one country two systems comes.

Next, Mandarin will be made the sole official language and the primary language of instruction in all Chinese-medium schools (that's if they allow English-medium schools to stay) and all Chinese will be written in b*stardized simplified characters. Mark my words. Could be in 5 years time, 10 years time. But it's coming

It actually started a while ago with money intensive, now 70% of primary schools are in Mandarin and Hong Kongers who wants their kids to learn in Cantonese are having a very hard time to find spots for their children.

There's a difference between snarky/petty and difficult. Check a dictionary.

I am confused what's snarky, petty or even difficult in the question ?

The dude could have simply answered some politically correct pre made stuff, it's important to test as many people as possible to be able able to identify the sicks as soon as possible and provide them with he best possible care and limiting the transmission or whatever ...

Clearly ignoring social distancing and stay at home orders.

The protestors are recklessly spreading Covid and putting all of us in danger.

Hong Kong got 1,047 cases for 4 deaths, and it's now been 21 days without a local case. So on the danger scale they put the CCP higher than the coronavirus.

This is definitely some BS communication, the US had stopped the payments to the WHO a while ago already.

The US roughly contributes with 100M USD per year, it is due on Jan 1st of each year.

2019 only 18M had been paid. 2020 nothing had been paid.

Those "news" are so counter productive, so useless. Stop giving him airtime.

The internet is now "Trump said that, Trump did that, this media attacks, this media fakes, blahblah".

Where are the reports of what is going on on the ground, in cities fighting the virus, or in hospitals, or maybe what some are doingo to help people in their daily lives, etc.

The American politics has become a circus, a clown show which takes all the spotlight, and people love it ....

BlacklabelToday 11:06 am JST

good point! that is a much better way to put it, thanks.

Science is not ignored, just the consequences of what science has proven are ignored.

So why cant we ignore the consequences of coronavirus too as we have the freedom to do with many othetr things?

One main reason I can see is that people who have ignored the recommendation purposely will endanger the society, crowd the country's health facilities, transmit to others, etc.

If they were to stay in their community and not use any public health facilities I guess it'll be ok.

everyone ignores science based on personal beliefs/preferences. A risk/benefit analysis based on personal choice.

People with this reasoning don't ignore science, they ignore the consequence of their action.

@Eppe: Goggle is your friend.

Doesn't help me much understanding your point .... HK hasn't done anything particular. yesterday they banned public gathering, it's still ok in public transportation of private properties (work place included), testing has been limited, travel ban took weeks to be enforced. So I am rather confused on what needs to be copied from HK. Oh yes they threw residents money, not to the needy though, just to every permanent residents, even those living abroad.
