Even a minority cause like Occupy Central can do harm

I must say that it's really something for 66,000 people to brave the rain to walk all the way from Causeway Bay to Central. It is a sign of a lack of confidence that the organisers felt they had to grossly inflate the figure to 430,000. Or perhaps they felt a need to prove themselves to someone not present at the scene.

Political winds blowing the wrong way for Hong Kong's dissidents

Let us for a moment assume there is no "pivot", that the US would sincerely welcome China as the dominant power in the world, and its re-entry into Asia is for the good of all parties concerned. Even all that would still not explain the behaviour of Clifford Hart.

Hong Kong has no need for patriots who don't know right from wrong

On March 26, Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying was finally pressured to "confess" to phoning Beijing ahead of announcing the new stamp duty for non-local homebuyers. "Notifying" Wang Guangya, director of the State Council's Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office, was an act of "internal diplomacy", according to Leung, and he denied seeking approval from Beijing on this matter.

Aping American democracy won't work in Hong Kong

Along with the mandatory "one man, one vote", our dissidents have many prescriptions for the good governance of Hong Kong and the entire country. But with a general paucity of ideas, they invariably fall into the "US is best" category.

What future for Hong Kong if the majority are silenced?

Anyone who dares to express an opinion that deviates from the anti-China, anti-government "intrinsic truth" will see their views silenced or twisted. Those very few whose views our dissidents cannot completely banish become targets of a lynch-mob mentality.

Pan-democrats should get themselves out of trouble - while they can

Following the recent turn of the tide in public opinion against the pan-democrats, many dissident politicians have suddenly became dovish. Even the Civic Party, which previously blasted the Democratic Party for striking a secret deal with Beijing in 2010 that paved the way for the implementation of universal suffrage in 2017, has now publicly expressed its wish to meet central government officials in private. Can we trust these fickle politicians?

Occupy Central plan amounts to tyranny of minority

Unlike Occupy Wall Street - a "leaderless resistance movement" of the 99 per cent against the "greed and corruption of the one per cent", as it proclaims on its website - Occupy Central is more a campaign than a movement. It is not concerned with social and economic inequality, but with one-man-one-vote elections.
