“After nearly two years of repression the Chinese government has effectively destroyed the Hong Kong ‘system.’ What Beijing once promised would be “one country, two systems” has become ‘one country, one system,’ thoroughly Chinese and oppressive. Today any act of resistance or word of criticism of either the Beijing leadership or its local agents can be punished with prison time. The educational system has been turned into a communist-propaganda program. Hong Kong even asserts the right to punish people anywhere on earth who threaten its ‘national security,’ broadly defined. Which theoretically could include my writing this article. … A dramatic demonstration of the political nature of the National Security Law, imposed on June 30, 2020, is how it has deployed to eliminate any mention of the June 1989 Tiananmen Square massacres.” (06/23/22)
