What the people of HK need to learn about their protests


The below piece is written by Dr Patrick Liew and I totally agree with him. With violence what do you acheived in the end when the state of economy in Hong Kong collapses and many will lose their jobs? Contributed by Oogle.

Protest Like Hong Kongers?

I would rather have the freedom to value-add and contribute to the growth of the country than the freedom to destroy the economy and society.

I would rather have the freedom to speak responsibly than the freedom to stop others from traveling properly in public transportation and private vehicles.

I would rather have the freedom to act honourably than the freedom to harass passers-by, the elderly, women, tourists, and the police.

I would rather have the freedom to volunteer for initiatives to take our people forward than the freedom to prevent others from going to work and running their businesses properly.

I would rather have the freedom to live in a society that abides by law and order than the freedom to destroy public and private belongings.

I would rather have the freedom to move around the country safely than the freedom to cause frustrations, anger and fear.

I would rather have the freedom to speak up against the authorities and propose solutions than the freedom to insist that they abide by our expectations and aspirations.

I would rather have the freedom to engage in appropriate dialogues and consultations than the freedom to blindly adopt western-style democracy without any details on how to make that system work in our unique culture and society.

I would rather have the freedom to help my own country than the freedom to ask foreign countries to interfere with and influence the governance of my country.

I would rather have the freedom to transform a piece of rock, with hardly any natural resources, into a liveable and lovable country than the freedom to destroy peace and progress.
