Today there are huge gatherings of many thousands of civilians of Hong Kong who demonstrate against the proposal of the 2020 National People’s Congress, in session this week in Beijing, to dictate a new National Security Law for Hong Kong. Such law would bypass the Parliament of HK. The city civilians would after this law would be implemented no longer have their own power and control, as enacted and promised in 1997.
I would like to stress the point that these gatherings are Pro-Democracy and that these brave young people are also demonstrating FOR OUR FREEDOM. In my humble opinion they are not the last in China but one of the first in the World who dare to stand up and halt outdated, corrupt and disfunctioning central control dictatorships.
- I recommend you read the book:
Unfree Speech: The Threat to Global Democracy and Why We Must Act, Now ; Paperback – 6 februari 2020

However, the old power command & control hierarchy in China can no longer cope with modern life connected complexity and dynamics. Their Plan / Model of society reacts too slow to unexpected changes and runs into the brick wall of Ashby’s Law of Requisite Variety. And instead of decentralising planning/models/ acting into a connected federative organisation with diverse models with realities and local circumstances and cultures; they have still chosen to simplify and uniformize Reality. That will ruin the life of young creative people who can create value and innovation. The CCP if they persist in this “Hong Kong law” enforced by secret police and surveillance will destroy the future of China. It is a dead end street.
Thank heavens the winds are changing and soon the CCP will be faced with a Yellow Wind which will be blowing over China. New ideas will spread unstoppable like virusses. And the Yellow Wind will blow also over Russia, the USA, Brazil and other old fart dicktatorships.
[#neolib market ideology and value extraction with a small clan of superrich oligarchs] will be replaced by: [P2P value creation by interconnecting people with different skills who can cooperate: building a #Synthecracy ].
