And that is just the point. Life is not a game, not a meme, not a comic book. If they believe that they are in for a great shock when Xi or Alibaba launch a game in which their “Universal Values” are shown for what they are: the product of the Second World War dominated by the US against anything communist and red, two things that joined together in 1949 in China, red like the oldest traditional color of the Empire, of weddings, of joy and pleasure, of success and happiness, and communist like the liberation of women, even in Tibet, education for all, and the tremendous last forty years of development. Hong Kong was nothing but a British show-window trying to challenge communist China, just the same as Taiwan. The result is turmoil and unbearable condescendence and arrogance of a younger generation that wants to be granted the right to be able to want but not to do. They probably have to learn how to work and produce something instead of living on scholarship, cheap education, their parents, and all kinds of marginal and black market incomes hand in hand with the Hong Kong mafia. I just wonder who is the person who is making millions in profit by producing and selling umbrellas?
