Let’s Look At Both Sides Of The Hong Kong Protests

From the perspective of Mainland China, the protests in Hong Kong are fundamentally the result of Western interference and attempts at a 'soft recolonization' of Hong Kong.

Can we see through the endless struggle for supremacy between these archaic systems of governance that we should really be reaching for something new? After writing an article entitled “What Are The Hong Kong Protests All About?” a month ago, I have become aware of the fact that I was essentially presenting the Western point of view on the protests rather than giving voice to both sides of the struggle. A Chinese friend of mine had a lot to tell me about Hong Kong after reading the article, as she had a much deeper understanding of the complex motives for the protest that belie the idea that this is simply a battle for freedom and democracy. According to her, skyscraping housing prices and the state of the economy provided much of the fuel for the disenfranchised youth of Hong Kong to continue to protest and voice their complaints. I was reminded once more that these types of geopolitical events are rarely explained perfectly by any particular narrative, but rather lie somewhere in the middle of what is being said by the two opposing sides, neither one having full domain over the truth. And that is why we decided to make this the subject of our latest episode of the Collective Evolution Show on CETV. In the clip below, we flesh out the Western viewpoint, which characterizes China’s reluctance to honor the tenets of Hong Kong’s ‘Basic Law’ Constitution, and their introduction of changes to the extradition laws–touted as a threat to the fight for greater democracy in Hong Kong–as the main reasons for the protests. A few readers also sent me emails about my previous article with the observation that I really had not covered the whole story. One of them sent me this Chinese video (with English subtitles) that gives a completely different explanation for why the protests are raging in Hong Kong. In the video, the protests are seen as part of an attempt at ‘soft recolonization’ of Hong Kong, with efforts on the part of Western infiltrators to stoke the conflict playing a major part of the operation. With historical examples of Western imperialism and regime-change operations to support their perspective, they elaborate on ‘The 12 Steps by America’s shadow government to create civil uprising to overthrow a target government’: The video concludes by noting that if the above 12 steps do not work, the US will then find an excuse to intervene militarily and overthrow the target government by force.

These steps follow a modus operandi that we have covered here at CE with regards to Western interference in other nations including the Ukraine, Syria, Iran, Venezuela and others. In the remainder of our recent episode of the Collective Evolution Show, we go through these 12 steps in-depth and see that there are many important points made here that might apply to the situation in Hong Kong.

Like few other places in the world, Hong Kong is a true battleground of political narratives, where the clash between China’s pseudo-Communism and Western Capitalism struggle for the hearts and minds of citizens of the world. It is important to note that neither of these two systems is proving to be adequate for a collective slowly awakening to our true human potential. And so, rather than taking sides, it’s important to observe this struggle from a more neutral, conscious perspective, so that we can begin to move away from these outdated, warring systems of political and economic governance and towards a paradigm that offers true autonomy and peace for the people of the planet.
