Devil's advocate: Chinese feudal plutocracy is Han culture
Hong Kong (HK), like China, is a Chinese feudal plutocracy - it is not a democracy! Unless and until there is a fundamental change to empower all peoples, Chinese feudal communities will be unable to match the social and economic results of leading democracies anywhere else in the world.
Taiwan gets it!
Based on current realities how can China add enough 'value' to lift 600 million citizens out of poverty? 2020 was the year when Emperor Xi Jinping said he would end poverty in China which has 600 million citizens earning less than 1,000Yuan per month, world ranking 72nd in GDP/capita!
As the Devil's advocate we are suggesting that unless and until the cultural attitudes of the Han Chinese change there will be no end to Chinese feudal plutocracies - and therefore no end to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)!
OR, said another way - change the CCP narratives to change the attitudes, and in turn this will bring about democratic and human rights changes!
In HK and globally we read and hear the rants and bleatings of CCP officials or party supporters. To people whose values are democratic by nature, the words and ideas they express are so often so much at odds with our own reality, that they only serve to further isolate CCP and China.
It's no surprise that HK people are no longer giving their consent to be ruled over by CCP and their minions, the HK elites who have completely different values and priorities! Hong Kong people have long-held their own identity, and it's stronger now than ever thanks to CCP.
Because of agreements reached long ago in the United Nations, democratisation is a process that nearly everyone on Earth has embarked on. Chinese citizens in China are already on this road to democracy, as are the people of Hong Kong!
HK is a Chinese feudal plutocracy where absolute power absolutely corrupts!
Carrie Lam a stubborn leader, HK a broken system. The Legislative Council (LegCo) does not have universal and equal suffrage elections: it is an illegitimate LegCo. CCP's National Security Law has breached the Joint Declaration - HK does not have the rule OF law, it only has CCP's rule BY law!
HK people have been protesting since 1982 on HK human rights issues. In the May 1989 1.5 million HK people protested in support of the Tiananmen Square Student movement!
In 24 November 2019 District Council elections, the only universal and equal suffrage elections in HK, pro-democrats won by a landslide majority in 17/18 seats. This shocked CCP and HK government so much that CCP clamped down hard!
On 6 June 2020 the majority of HK District Councillors rejected CCP's National Security Law.
It's about each individual 'being' and not just 'doing' the democratic process! It's about human rights. It's about our collective health - as COVID-19 is teaching us through Earth's paradigm shift! It's about We the People of Earth, the United People! It's about our principles, beliefs, awareness and connectedness to the consciousness!
Compared to HK - Taiwan, predominantly an ethnic Han Chinese community, is ranked 31 out of 167 in the Economist Democracy Index 2019! Taiwan has emerged as the region's third leading democracy after South Korea (23) and Japan (24); well above Hong Kong (HK) (75), Singapore (75) and China (153). Taiwan is a democratic beacon within Han Chinese communities!
Taiwan really pisses off Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Emperor Xi Jinping. This is because as a democracy, Taiwan has USA support! In addition, in modern times (i.e. post WWII 1945) it has never truly acted as a part of China.
USA also supports HK democrats!
CCP's 'one country two systems', is an attempt to 're-unify' China by first taking back HK, Macao and later Taiwan, has proven to be a complete failure for CCP because of HK protests! If CCP think they can erase the collective conscience and memories of HongKongers and democratic people worldwide by simply inserting its own narrative, our advocacy tells us they are bound to be sorely, and foolishly mistaken.
WTPOHK recognise the strength and depth of the democratic process.

A major problem of all patriarchial structures is the 'wounded' male (or masculine energy) ego! These are exemplified by the males (and some females) 'leading' the current feudal Chinese plutocracies - CCP's Xi Jinping, HK's Hakka Heung Yee Kuk, HK's Carrie Lam, Singapore's (Lee Kuan Yew's son) Lee Hsien Loong, etc. They are not going to go away quietly!
To decouple CCP from China 'cut the head off the snake'. In China, each dynasty has been violently erased by the last. After CCP's end what will happen? Will there be a bloodbath?

'Culture' (/ˈkʌltʃər/) is an umbrella term which encompasses the social behavior and norms found in human societies, as well as the knowledge, beliefs, arts, laws, customs, capabilities, and habits of the individuals in these groups. Humans acquire culture through the learning processes of enculturation and socialization, which is shown by the diversity of cultures across societies.
Feudalism, also known as the feudal system, was a combination of the legal, economic, military, and cultural customs that flourished in Medieval Europe between the 9th and 15th centuries (i.e. 500-1,100 years ago!). Chinese history from the Zhou dynasty (1046 BC–256 BC) to the beginning of the Qin dynasty has been termed a feudal period by many Chinese historians, due to the custom of enfeoffment of land similar to that in Medieval Europe.
Fēngjiàn, roughly translated as 'feudalism in China', (Chinese: 封建; lit. 'enfeoffment and establishment') was a political ideology and governance system in ancient China, whose social structure formed a decentralized system of confederation-like government based on the ruling class consisting of the Son of Heaven (king) and nobles, and the lower class consisting of commoners categorized into four occupations (or "four categories of the people", namely gentries, peasants, laborers and merchants). After the establishment of the Han dynasty (206 BCE to 207 CE), Confucianism became the reigning imperial ideology and scholars and court officials alike again began to look to the Zhou dynasty fengjian system as an ideal. These scholars advocated incorporating elements of the fengjian system into the junxian system. The Han dynasty emperors ultimately chose to parcel out land to their relatives, thus combining the junxian and fengjian systems. Junxian and Fengjian.
