  1. Legendary Italian writer Tiziano Terzani (who travelled extensively across Asia while being a correspondent for Der Spiegel) once said that Hong-Kongers are somewhat like Florentines: they have a superiority complex. 说白了,就是“我不是你们这样的一群穷,没有教养的大陆中国人”。到后来,因为愤怒,直接成了"我不是中国人”

    现在国外的华人中间已经开始孤立港人了。之前有个在香港中文读大学的朋友,在澳洲一次活动上,警告我不要接近港人,后来我就接触过就后悔了。那些港人对我说“充电宝是香港的特色”。这mmb的不是和茶叶蛋一样的感觉吗。自此以后,我就告诉我自己和周围的人,宁愿新加坡和吉隆坡转机,也不要经过香港,比较烦。

    现在是中央在维系,其实内地居民和海外的华人早就看港人不爽了。中国又不是一个人在思考,凭什么港人有特权,广府人呢?巴蜀人呢?吴越人呢?荆楚文化呢?中国min主化过后,第一个就会对香港和台湾开刀,民间的愤怒,第一时间就会被正政党所利用,武力解决不是不可能,现在只是中央权力大,压着而已。

    额外,我个人接触的感觉是,港人的阶层差异巨大,精英国际视野,大部分港人的视野不过港岛,在澳洲一个大学的演讲上,一个港女说,我出国的经历,竟然说的内蒙古!我去,去广州算不算出国?去深圳算不算出国了?甚至去九龙算不算出国?

    额外,稍微有点智商的人都知道,香港的问题,最终是经济问题,而香港本来应该更惨,2008年过后,那个发达经济体没面临问题。然而被一部分被CIA收买的港人把这些问题转嫁到一国两制。我觉得可以不要管港人是不是中华民族,采取对韩国的策略,直接让其经济崩塌,然后装作救命恩人,施舍一点嗟来之食,收买其人心,而不是现在这样,帮狗还被狗咬。

    多行不义必自毙。只是作为一个来自巴蜀文化的小留学生的经历。

  2. Britain go protect your people. Hong Kong is in great danger from the Communist. At any protest you see 2 flags. The Taiwanese flag, & The British Colonial flag of Hong Kong. Help them.

  3. BBC dont promote CULT PERSONALITY FOR UK STUDENT PROTESTER

    BBC dont give free advertising for UK STUDENT UMBRELLA

  4. Ha, these Hong Kong students, so naïve, so blinded and misled by the media, I almost feel sorry for them. They have no idea of the corruption in the west, they cry for democracy and suffrage, have they no idea that no pure democratic state exists?

  5. DIRECT DEMOCRACY OF THE PEOPLE IS THE ONLY GOVERNMENT WORTH HAVING.EVERYTHING ELSE MUST BE DESTROYED.
