#I know not everyone likes to here about opposing the protest
I’ve been having a lot of mixed feelings about hongkong’s current protests, especially some posts about the protest on social media written in english gearing towards the liberal young crowd of the internet who have previously supported other occupy movements and liberation protests. I find that those posts about hongkong invoke more anger than sympathy from me because what it lacks in historical consideration, it makes up with a lot of emotional romantic idealism that is actually more toxic when practiced in real life than the institution they’re trying to fight. I want to share this chinese letter here because I actually feel more in harmony with his opinions. I don’t agree with all his points, but I feel like the writer’s stance is one that, despite opposing the protests, do not sound like a protest-hating communist-party-loving narrow minded argument bashing the efforts of those who want the best for hongkong, but rather a plea for everyone to think of the past, the present, and for the future of hongkong, and to be down to earth and patient for the sake of the future of both hongkong and china.
