It's all water under the bridge now. The only thing is to work out carefully what to do next.|
One, the police have been exemplary in restraint against mob rioters. If it had happened in the west, skulls would have been cracked. Therefore, under no circumstances must they be victimized with a commission of inquiry. In fact, such an inquiry should be directed against the rioters instead. Start by identifying with view to charging those who had killed the cleaner and immolated the citizen who had protested against the rioters. It seems to the rioters free speech means free only to speak their terms and not anyone else who disagrees.
Two, start a transition program to move the financial and trade services of Hong Kong to Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou. These will be the new opening-up hubs for services like how Shenzhen FTZ was the first opening-up hub for products. There can be many initiatives under the program, for example, relocate and twin the HKSE to Shanghai's and expand the STAR portfolio to tap Hong Kong's tech entrepreneur ventures. Hong Kong will suffer but let that be its lesson to those who cannot see beyond their own noses. Then they may realize they have been duped by the west and start clamoring for help when the island's economy tanks, jobs become scarce and municipality works flounder for lack of funds; by then they may want to support the HK segment of the BRI more because it will be their lifeline.
Three, maintain PLA presence in Hong Kong if only to deter foreign interference by direct infiltration. Start by expanding the naval base there. In fact, start an intelligence unit to find out how all these years foreign CIA/NED etc agents were able to infiltrate with stealth HK society until entrenched in its schools and universities. Now the west are starting their propaganda broadcasts in Mandarin, it has become even more important to proactively flush out any attempt at destabilizing societies through snake-oil salesman talk about freedom and democracy when neither contributes any difference from other economic models especially in a world when economics and jobs are what matter for futures;
Four, take the long view that in the time of a geography, 2047 is not that long to wait for Hong Kong to come to its senses enough to realize 1C2S has a permanent expiry date. In fact, it is now an imperative to teach the historical root of how Hong Kong had come about. The youths seem to have been opiated by western ideas exclusively until their minds have closed to anything else but; they have become junkies of western jingoism. Maybe they should start asking for UK passports owed them. Let who-was-it-ah Patten be their broker. Let's see whether he will walk his talks or it has all along been sheer hypocrisy.
Five, pour some fine tea in a meeting somewhere quiet. Then ask - and answer - the most important question that seems to be resonating with increasing stridency these days: namely, how is the west trying to destroy China.
In other words, no more hindsight. Foresight forward all the way from now on.
