One Country, Two Systems: a Pragmatic Model
July 17, 2017

The “one country, two systems” model is not perfect, but it is a pragmatic and realistic approach to reunifying the mainland and Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau. It allows the two sides time (50 years or longer) to come up with solutions that could bridge the development gap – economic, political, social and cultural – between the three sides. What’s more, mainland China will never allow any of the three to declare official independence.

The Rightful Handover of Hong Kong
July 15, 2017

The Chinese President Xi Jinping, one of the greatest Leaders on the planet today, has quite rightly exposed the real agenda of the so-called «Umbrella» pro-Western democracy movement, that is pawns of larger anti-China forces trying to whip up unrest in Hong Kong to undermine the PRC.

October 17, 2014

Looks like the time is wrong for exacerbating tensions with China. But that’s what the United States did… Washington is not hiding its intent to undermine the stability in China. Like if repeating the very same stuff he said about Ukraine, John Kerry called on Beijing to display restraint towards the protesters and let them peacefully express their opinion. Once again blocking administrative buildings is called peaceful actions while the activities of the government aimed at establishing law and order are called violence…

Hong Kong: Fathers and Children
October 14, 2014

The Hong Kong (Xiānggǎng) unrest spilled over to the central streets of the city on September 28-29 to immediately hit Western media radar screen. The movement was dubbed «the umbrella revolution» in turgid political style… The painted image of fighters for democracy against the totalitarian regime in Beijing (the event was compared to the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989) stood out for theatrical effectiveness… Beijing made it clear it won’t stand for interference into its internal affairs, including the support for anti-nationalist sentiments and organizers of protests. In the period of late September – early October Hong Kong became a testing ground for committing the nefarious deed of mixing notions: pro-American is painted as democratic while whatever is democratic is painted as anti-Chinese.
