Now more than ever, Hong Kong holds the key to China’s unification with Taiwan

When the whole world looks to be collapsing in chaos, it is sometimes tempting to just give up, roll oneself into a ball and hide underneath the covers until the storm has passed. Indeed, various parts of the Hong Kong administration seem to have adopted this strategy recently. But, for those of us committed to China and Hong Kong, giving up is not an option.

Both the central government and the local administration have been far too conservative in their policies on political reform. As a result, there is now a complete disconnect between the younger generation and the existing political machinery.
