    Democracy is a real religion

    Posted Oct 16th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Democracy is a real religion, my friend I had not met a childhood friend for years, until this week. Ostensibly it's because he has a growing business on the mainland while I spend most of my time in Hong Kong. The real reason is that we simply drifted apart as we grew older and had our own families and children. A bunch of us have been friends since we ...

    China and United States must make the best of their bad marriage

    Posted Oct 12th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Making the best of a bad marriage Ideologues are boring because you know what they will think and say before they utter a word. So with the spectacle of a government shutdown and the threat of a sovereign default in Washington, you end up reading in Hong Kong the same well-rehearsed arguments for and against democracy. A wise and centralised governing ...

    As adults squabble, children suffer

    Posted Oct 09th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com As adults squabble, children suffer When you combine inexperience, incompetence and ideology, you get a mess like the mass hysteria over kindergarten placements in north New Territories. But isn't this the story of post-1997 Hong Kong? Unused to so many applicants, many kindergartens are simply overwhelmed. They lack staff and resources to handle ...

    Time to get real over hostage crisis

    Posted Oct 10th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Time to get real over hostage crisis We have seen our journalists and chief executive chasing Benigno Aquino all over the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit this week, looking for an apology. The hacks got kicked out; our chief and his sidekicks were upended in a meeting with the Philippine president. The Philippine media had a field day with the meeting ...

    Dear Professor Mathieson, here in Hong Kong we politicise everything

    Posted Oct 07th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo Alex.lo@scmp.com Dear professor, we politicise everything Henry Kissinger famously quipped that academic backbiting is fierce because the stakes are so low. The public was given such a spectacle last week with the announcement that the University of Hong Kong has appointed Professor Peter Mathieson of Britain as its new vice-chancellor. One prominent surgery professor called him ...

    Vietnamese general who built an army

    Posted Oct 08th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Vietnamese general who built an army For a Vietnamese communist who defeated and humiliated in turn the French, Americans and Chinese, the death of General Vo Nguyen Giap received favourable coverage in all three countries. It's testament to his genius that he is almost universally regarded as one of the greatest generals of the 20th century. Giap ...

    War against Obamacare has deep roots

    Posted Oct 05th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com War against Obamacare has deep roots To most outsiders, the US federal government shutdown and the fight over lifting the debt ceiling must seem crazy and dangerous. At least that's how it looks to me. It appears a small number of tea party right-wing radicals have hijacked that nation's budgetary process and threatened its ability to service ...

    Tom Clancy: a true hack of our time

    Posted Oct 04th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Tom Clancy: a true hack of our time I had a fleeting personal connection with Tom Clancy, who died this week aged 66, through the actor Harrison Ford. It was around 1990, when Ford's film crew came to Annapolis, my college town in Maryland, to shoot an assassination scene outside the famous US Naval Academy. The movie was to be the blockbuster ...

    Rankings belie the real purpose of universities: to educate

    Posted Oct 03rd 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com University rankings not serious news Local university chiefs endlessly fret over their institutions' rankings by foreign media. Worse, they worry about becoming less competitive if rankings slip a notch or two relative to say, mainland universities, as if they are fierce competitors out to clean up the city's young talent pool. In doing so, ...

    Pricing domestic helpers out of reach good for Hong Kong in the long run

    Posted Oct 02nd 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Time to price maids out of our reach If a miserly HK$90 rise will worsen Hong Kong's shortage of domestic helpers, then I say raise it by a couple of hundred, or even thousands. Some people are worried. I say it's a good thing. Let the maids qualify for local minimum wages and enjoy the same permanent residency conditions. Once it costs as much ...
