News came in that pro-Democracy members were escorted out of the legislature. Many called it a coup.

What are we seeing here? What is the future for Hong Kong?

My vision is pretty fuzzy, as I'm still trying to heal from that awful illness of that depression dark haze that plagued me for weeks since the virus has broken out. I can say from my little glimpse that HK will be going through some unrest and oppression, especially when China decided to take this matter into their own hands eventually. I saw an empty main road in darkness, probably late at night, with some of debris, cloth and shoes. I saw small bonfires here and there, it looks like the aftermath of a civil conflict.

I wish I was wrong, though. In terms of seeing things.

I'm always wary of China since early in my childhood, due to their influence that drove my whole family out of Vietnam in the first place after the Viet Cong had won the war. Reading from the predictions on this site makes me feel uneasy and anxious about the future, since they pointed signs that China eventually becomes a global powerhouse. Unless something has changed from within, nothing good usually comes out of them, especially in the later predictions that Australia and it's allies will war with them in later decades.

Sorry for going off-topic before. Back to the thread, I hate to say it, but Hong Kong will have an uphill battle for it's freedom for sure at best.

@goldstone Ever since Xi got in power, my gut has been telling me that he should not be trusted. I feel a sense of negativity whenever I see him on Phoenix Channel and TVB.
