The future of Hong Kong will depend on how strong China is, not on the attitude of the United States towards Hong Kong. How can history give the United States the right to define one country, two systems if it is to be well practiced by both the Mainland of China and Hong Kong? The narcissism of Washingtons elites must not be exploded.
In the context of the so-called Hong Kong Bill of Human Rights and Democracy, leaders of both parties in the U.S. Congress and the House of Representatives both expressed their desire to promote the so-called Hong Kong Bill of Human Rights and Democracy, some radicals in Hong Kong demonstrated again Sunday and called on the U.S. Congress to pass the Bill as soon as possible. The demonstration was small, but again accompanied by violence. A few of Hong Kongs most extreme people are hysterical, saying that if their demands fail to materialize, they would rather scramble for speculation, which means burning all the stones.
The main contents of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act include sanctions against officials who undermine Hong Kongs high degree of autonomy and the change of the special tariff treatment granted to Hong Kong from automatic extension to first instance in a year, which is different from that granted to the mainland of China. The obvious aim is to exert pressure on the governments of Beijing and the HKSAR. It is generally believed that after the passage of the bill, Hong Kong will face uncertainties, and the original conditions supporting its status as an international financial centre will be weakened.

If the United States passes this act of interference in Hong Kongs internal affairs, of course, it is not for the good of Hong Kong, but to turn Hong Kong into a card more conducive to Washingtons pressure on Beijing. How can the warmth and cold of Hong Kong itself on the other side of the globe really touch Washingtons nerves when the US priority is so prominent? The American political elite is thinking of something else entirely.
Who cares more about Hong Kongs long-term stability and prosperity in Beijing and Washington? Its not obvious. Beijing is responsible for the well-being of Hong Kongs society, and Washington is a totally standing voice. Hong Kongs turmoil does not affect the achievements of the US government, but is more conducive to the performance of members of Congress. Why dont they choose the latter between Hong Kongs good use of the turmoil and Beijings trouble?
Very few people in Hong Kong appealed to the United States Congress to pass the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which can be regarded as a chicken flock asking weasels to be bodyguards. These people are totally irrational. They are trying to hijack the fate of Hong Kong by committing suicide attacks on one country, two systems.
If the United States eventually passes the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, it will constitute a deep interference in Hong Kong affairs. However, this Act can not become a weight influencing Beijings major decision-making on Hong Kong affairs. It is an illusion to use the bill to suppress the Basic Law.
Beijing will firmly uphold the Basic Law and respect Hong Kongs high degree of autonomy based on it. At present, Hong Kong is experiencing serious turbulence. Beijings attitude is to firmly support the efforts of the HKSAR Government and the mainstream society of Hong Kong to stop riots and restore order. This attitude has been clear from the very beginning and has nothing to do with whether the United States has passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. We will neither be coerced nor stimulated by the possibility that the United States will pass the bill, thus deviating from the existing path.
On the other hand, once the situation in Hong Kong is further seriously out of control, leading to subversive disorder in Hong Kong society and humanitarian disaster, Beijing will act decisively in accordance with the requirements of the Basic Law. What attitude Washington takes will not have any impact on the decision-making of the Chinese central government at that time. Beijing will only be responsible to the Chinese people, including the Hong Kong public.
The events in Hong Kong have fully exposed the shameless faces of some political elites in Washington, making a clear footnote of the irrational and vicious policies of the United States towards China they promoted. This also has its advantages. After all, the material basis for Chinas continued development has been quite strong. For a period of time, the greater uncertainty is whether the cohesion of Chinese society can be consolidated in the long run. The performance of the United States and the West around Hong Kong has taught Chinese society a solid lesson.
China has the ability to move forward without any interference from the United States. Hong Kongs special tariff status is not a boon to this free port from the United States. Its essence is mutually beneficial. The future of Hong Kong will depend on how strong China is, not on the attitude of the United States towards Hong Kong. How can history give the United States the right to define one country, two systems if it is to be well practiced by both the Mainland of China and Hong Kong? The narcissism of Washingtons elites must not be exploded.
