    So while the west is forced to support "equality" where nobody can have any more than anyone else in a perpetually stagnant and multi-racial economy, china is flashing their exceptionalism and national cohesion by building the worlds largest city. Double standards much?

    You're repeating western media propaganda, my friend. Do some research as to how the extradition legislation started and why. It had nothing to do with China. Better yet, go read the actual legislation. It automatically disqualifies any extradition request based on politics. But, I supposed that not even dangerous criminals from China that escape into Hong Kong should be extradited either, huh?

    Locating millions into big cities is a great way to control the world population. Get them reliant on all the farming, logging, fishing, mining and energy production all of which needs to be transported in and then when overcrowding problems like pollution, emissions, sewage and crime get bad , the people will demand that the government tax them to death to fix the problems. We should ban cities. They are hard on the environment and the mind. Hysterical hypocrisy is a mental disorder. Ask any farmer what happens when you overcrowd a corral. The cows get hot and thirsty and covered in shit. They then demand that the farmer tax the cows in the pasture.

    Hong Kong's police and immigration officers help people willingly from bottom of their heart. Chinese police and immigration officers make people feel scared and hatefully do so from their blood. My daughter said, "Chinese police are scary. After crossing the boarder to Hong Kong, immediately we feel much, much more relaxed and free." why?

    The recent protests have kinda thrown this into chaos - also, the U.S. has passed a bill that states any attempt to fuck with Hong Kong before the deal they agreed to is up will have those in power in China's western assets frozen...and it's not a secret that a large portion of the powerful and elite in China keep a lot of their wealth / their children in the west. Also....China's banking system is probably going to collapse before this plan is complete. China is a total house of cards. You can't continue to build homes for millions of people that sit empty without repercussions, for example, and their bank's debt levels are a total secret (hint: It's a lot worse than they let on)

    Hong Kong has more than 179,000 millionaires. Because of the high price of real estate, an average apartment of 60m2 value around HK$10 million, equivalent to US$1.3 million. So any Hong Konger owning a home is a millionaire.

    Kind of difficult to secede when you don't have a military. The British handed over HK to the Chinese in 1997...it belongs to China, no questions asked, with an agreement to not fully transition to 100% Chinese governance for many years. As Beijing likes to say, 'One nation, two systems'. They have no chance of pulling a Taiwan.

    Redsunns . Go and educate yourself about the history of China, man. Xinjiang was a Han Dynasty domain. It was already part of China before the birth of Islam, before the birth of England and of course before the birth of US. The contemporary of the Han Dynasty was the Roman Empire. Tibet was a Yuan Dynasty domain. It was already part of China before Christopher Columbus set foot on the Continent of America and before the US is born. You should ask when the US and Canada be returned back to the red Indians and the Whites go back to Europe. Don't forget to ask when the Whites going to return back Australia to the Aborigines.

    Hongkong isn't and won't be a part of this great bay area. Hongkong does not want to join the great bay. They oppose to everything related to China, such as spending 10 years to build 28 km rail to Shenzhen, cutoff Shenzhen exit ramp of the bridge between Hongkong and Macow. And its congress representatives are more interested in democrap political game. On the other hand, Shenzhen has ambition to take over Hongkong's financial and transportation stake. Shenzhen is building another bay bridge which is short, cheap, and easy to use. Shenzhen is also building more airport runways and more container ports.
