Oh man. Don’t we love those democracy demonstrators. Democracy, two coyotes and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner, is all the rage. Now we are supposed to root for these kids in Hong Kong. After all, the commies are the antithesis of democracy, right?
Well, let’s step back and take a deep breath. Communism is closer to democracy than we are led to believe. It is mob rule. It is the utopia of progressives, where the rich are punished and the poor are rewarded.
What the pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong want is what they are getting, rule by Chinese communists. When will any demonstration be for freedom and responsibility? Never. Because those who value freedom and responsibility are busy being free and responsible. They have no time to demonstrate in anticipation of gaining the property of others through political means.
That is why we are doomed.
