Something on a historic scale is happening in Hong Kong. It started out as protest about the pre-selected slate of candidates for the position of Chief Executive. The people want to select their own candidates. It's important to remember that China is still a country run by the Communist Party. The party decides everything. The individual counts for nothing except as a cog in the machine to achieve the Party's goals. It is impossible to tell where these protests will lead. Even the participants don't know. It may be quashed, it may be the beginning of a revolution. It may be the beginning of the end for the Chinese Communist Party. Don't think they aren't scared. Nobody willingly relinquishes power. These events bear watching. The events in the Middle east are nothing as compared to this. The world's biggest economy. one of the major military powers, the most populous nation of the world may be in upheaval in a matter of days. Big, big events are going down right before our eyes.
