When we speak about the Hong Kong protests - shall we consider those just a simple manifestation of people's rights? Or shall we treat it as a border line where two systems meet: capitalism and communism, democracy and totalitarism. We can see a relatively small region protecting its autonomy from multi-billion neighbour country, one of the greatest world's economy. But - in larger perspective - is it a symbol of modern world, where the people more often take attempt to rebel agains the system? Like Euro-Maidan revolution in Ukraine or "yellow vests" movement in France, for example.
Yes, apparently Hong Kong and its people deserve much more attentioin than they have currently. But shall it be sympathy or antipathy - not clear so far. Thoughts?
