Hong Kong has no "Big Egg"; no famous theatre where the greatest musicians are stunning the world. Its only art museum is closed for reconstruction, for years, and will re-open only at the end of 2019. Its cultural life is shallow, even laughable, for the place that is branding itself as the "Asia's World City". There are no great discoveries made here. It is all business. Big, big business. And creeping decay.

Beijing could 'liberate' Hong Kong, easily; to give it purpose, pride and future.

But young hooligans want to be liberated by Washington, instead. They want to be re-colonized by London. And they do not consult their fellow citizens. That clearly reflects their idea about 'democracy'. Not the "rule of the people", but the "rule of the West".

Not only they feel spite for their country, but they also scorn and intimidate their fellow citizens who just want to have their meaningful life, based on the Chinese values.
