Apple Daily Increases Print Run as Hong Kongers Queue to Buy Paper

"We must press on, said the chief of Apple Daily newspaper as he was arrested. At the end of last week, the journalists on the best known pro democracy paper in Hong Kong carried on producing and writing. They also sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Some Hong Kong has elected to show their support by buying 10 at once and then just giving them away. But for how much longer Last week's actions by the Hong Kong authorities are making it very difficult for the newspaper to carry on to remind you, its owner, Jimmy Lai, is in jail, serving a sentence for unauthorized assembly and senior staff at the paper are being held at the moment, it's feared the paper may not survive for long, like a matter of days. Mark Simon is an adviser of the owner Jimmy Lai. The government has frozen the access to the bank accounts. They've frozen any interaction with the bank account, so they and they've informed Hong Kong banks not to deal with Apple daily. So basically the situation is the company is up, unable to operate its bank accounts, and that's basically that's as bad as it gets. But I mean, you're a large company, 600 employees and so on What's on the agenda for the board meeting, then right now that sounds like the agenda for the board meeting is going to be basically how to work to get the accounts on frozen and then what's the progress there? But it's not really a decision that I think Apple Daily is making. It's not really a decision that's on our side. That's really the decision on the government side at the Security Department wants to open, let The paper operate. That's fine with them. That's fine with us. If not, there's nothing we can do you It's they've cut off every every vehicle and every venue for us, they say if they don't if they don't unfreeze the bank accounts can you carry on operating? I don't think I don't see how nobody can carry on operating without financial, you know activity. In other words, if you can't conduct your business, how do you carry on operating? Uh, it's illegal action. It's illegal, also in Hong Kong. In other words, you can't contract for services or tell employees to work without the ability to

The next of 1,000 cuts: Hong Kong activists on trial

"Rock. It's a scene. That's becoming ole too familiar in hong kong this week more pro. Democracy activists are on trial before appearing in court. One of the accused lee. Cheuk yan said hong kong's rule of law is deteriorating because he became a in some political him eight other profile figures have been charged with organizing and participating in an unauthorized. The charges stemmed not from hong kong's draconian new national security law but from the protests prior to its introduction in june twenty nine thousand nine millions of hong kongers began taking to the streets. They were opposing and extradition bill but they saw as a grave threat to the territory's delegate independence from the mainland government over months. The demonstrations escalated vandalism and violence were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This week's training focuses on one particular protest so on august. Eighteen two thousand and nineteen mole than one million. People gathered to protest despite very heavy rain that day. Su lin wong is a china correspondent for the economist and is based in hong kong so the police had granted permission for people to protest in victoria park but they weren't granted permission to march on the streets but because there was so many people showed up inevitably people flowed out but the eight hundred august protests. Actually marks the first tig free weekend in a month so really was extremely peaceful. Compared to many of the protests that had come before it and so if that days protests remained peaceful wire or activists on trial for for being a part of it. They're nine high profile activists who on trial charged with organizing and participating in unauthorized and so they faced penalties of up to five years in jail. It's important to know that they haven't been charged under the national security law which was introduced after up. These protests occurred so the prosecution is accusing these group of defying police. Instructions encouraging crowds to watch and causing traffic disruptions. While the defense doesn't contest the facts that helped to organize and participate in the peaceful assembly. What they're arguing is that. The charges violate a basic right to assembly guaranteed under hong kong law and they are challenging the constitutionality of the polices ability to ban assemblies especially when the protests were directed at the police themselves. And you say that all the defendants are are high profile. Parts of hong kong's democracy movement. Yes so interestingly. This particular case is focused on an older generation of pro-democracy activists in hong kong who are generally considered to be moderate and who believe in trying to change the system from within by for example running for parliament in contrast to a younger generation of protesters who we saw take to the streets in two thousand nine hundred eighteen. So the fact that it's it's this group of older per democracy campaigners indicates the dominant is trying to crush the democracy movement as a whole as opposed to going after particular protesters who a particularly violent the two most high profile defendants in this case. Are martin land. Jimmy lai so muslim is considered the father of the democracy movement in hong kong. He's now eighty two years old. The other high profile figure is jimmy. Lai who is a media tycoon and runs a pro-democracy tabloid in hong kong and his despised by the chinese communist party. And so how do you think this trial will go so two of the nine have pleaded guilty to the charges and the remaining seven have pleaded not guilty to the sentence for the to pleaded. Guilty is expected next month and then the trial for the seven. He pleaded not guilty. Expected to last two weeks and so courts in hong kong still have a relatively high degree of autonomy and as a high standard of evidence it's expected in cases so people hoping that the courts will will still remain as independent as they were known to be prior to the protests as you say targeting these fathers and mothers of democracy in hong kong is quite telling so i think the outlook for democracy in hong kong is extremely grim and while some supporters did rally outside the court on tuesday since the national security law was introduced me last day. Her beam very few protests harshly because of covid restrictions but also because there has been a real layer of fear that is settled across the city. People have been arrested for holding up blank posters and slogans that we heard all the time on the streets in two thousand and nineteen have now being labeled seditious

"jimmy lai" Discussed on KCRW

"Start, you know whoever great just asked. That's cool. I'm sorry. Goodbye, compounds. I'll tell you why I come on. Okay, Great. Great. And where does Jimmy lies? Story? Start. Where do you begin this conversation. So Jimmy Lee. I was born in Canton. It's not known is going Joe in mainland China. He's born in 1948, just before the Communist takeover of China in 1949. And this is a very wrenching and difficult period for for a lot of people, including Jimmy lies, family, and by the time he's AH young boy, there's a mass collectivization campaign called the Great Leap Forward. And it results in a famine in which tens of millions of people are believed to have died. And so while he lives in Canton, which is a comparatively relatively well off place in China, it's still quite difficult for him and his family. Well, I Worked us a boy. Lucky's carrier. And, uh, Railway station in Canton. He told us that he was working at a railway station as a porter. And that's where he sort of first got the inspiration to go to Hong Kong. One thing I carry your baggage. For a guy who was 18 a bar of chocolate. And he gave me to indicate that the Tropic TV also that he almost half of it. And I was shy, you know, turn around and that my dear, is it What's this is chocolate. I said, Where you from? Hong Kong. Hong Kong must be heaven. At that moment, he said. I have to get to this place. So for this poor young man, wherever that talk like came from, he wanted to be that's right, and his parents are reluctant to allow him to go. He's quite young. He's 12, but He tells us that his mother also realized that there was a real risk of him starting my manga and she allow me to go just because you know you stay here. Maybe you you die from friends. And I left. And smoke under the fishing boats from but cows to Hong Kong. From a cow. He makes his way onto a fishing boat and he smuggled by a fishing boat in the Hong Kong. And so what does he do with this newfound sense of freedom in this land where there's finally enough food? What happens next? Well, he proved to be a very capable worker in this clothing factory. He works his way up the factory. I was not even 21 was made general manager off a factory or 300 people. What did the factory me sweaters? Nice work, and we've locked Was able to perform in the profit that they haven't made in a couple of years. One year he uses his bonus money to invest in by his own factory. And so within a few years he's running. His own factory. It's quite impressive. In many ways, it's a very Hong Kong story. It's a knopper to nitty that he just would not have been afforded the state in mainland China. So what happens to this factory that he buys? It does well. I was working as many fracture for T shirts. Be producing a lot for polo. Ralph Lauren. And some other brand names. On. He eventually creates his own clothing company. Then it's called Giordano's Jordan. This is very good Italian night and I was stupid enough to think that if I used Italian name people would think that because for military he takes that name thinking that it will give this Hong Kong clothing company a sort of Ah ah, European Claire. And Giordano becomes a success, and it sort of becomes the gap of Hong Kong and beyond Hong Kong they open up in China and other parts of Asia. And Jimmy Lai is on his way It comes up a multi millionaire. So within a very short span, this child of mainland China Who used to carry the bags of Richmond on their way to Hong Kong. Is now himself. A massive Hong Kong success story. So how does he get from retail in tow media? So it starts with Chinese politics. This is you know, the 19 eighties was a period of opening up in China and people in mainland China begin pushing for Even more. And so there is a Protest movement in 1989 in Beijing and other large Chinese cities, where students and workers come together and demonstrate and try and demand greater say in their government. And this is something that's followed very closely in Hong Kong. By this point, it's clear that Hong Kong will return to Chinese control and Jimmy Lai. He has this belief that China will open up. But that doesn't happen. China since in the troops, and on June 4th 1989 Chinese soldiers kill hundreds, possibly thousands of demonstrators in Beijing. And that is the end of the protest movement. And how does Jimmy Lai we acted the news of that massacre. He still believes that China will become a democracy that that time when the Tiananmen massacre happens. Fought there. Away for China to go. Forward. Liberalization. Was reversible. E was wrong that I was a dreamer. I'm stealing your life. Yeah, on and he wants to do what he can to push it in that direction. He sees the way of doing that is through the media. S o. As a child. We saw food is freedom. Now he sees information is freedom on by being a publisher himself. He can deliver that. So his first publication is called Next magazine and people in Hong Kong Talk about, you know, in those days like waiting to get the next issue of next magazine, and five years later, he starts Apple Daily, which is a daily newspaper, and it's a very similar sort of mix of Gossip and celebrity and also hard hitting news and investigations and Everything somebody might want to read. Basically. So how did these publications next Apple Daily? How did they treat China? So they're very critical of the Chinese Communist Party. In fact, Jimmy like gets into a lot of trouble over this, he has a column and in this column he insults Li Peng is the Chinese premier and person. Generally believed have ordered the troops into Beijing. E don't know what year was that maybe a couple years after the Tiananmen Square. He was saying something ridiculous, you know? So I wrote a letter because you basically questioning both his intelligence and his parentage, huh? Then China's Century. On and Order me. Two. Self Stick injured Animal Would be in five days or wherever to the otherwise them close The shop in B G. There's a very quick reaction from the Chinese authorities and they begin closing Giordano shops in mainland China..

Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai charged under security law

"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.

Lai along with six other people under that controversial new national security law after the National Security Law was passed. Jimmy Lai was arrested. And after he was held for about a day, he was released and out on bail. And he agreed to talk to us. So. One morning my colleague. And I. Went and visited him at his house. He's asking for. Ya. It's in the neighborhood of old colonial houses on the column Peninsula. and. By American standards, it's a large suburban house, but by Hong Kong standards where people have a couple of hundred square feet to themselves at most it's enormous. And there's a gate. Can go now. and. New Mercedes outside. Cars partier and. WE WALK INTO HIS HOUSE into the living room, the grand piano. Many paintings. There's lots of art on the walls, stocks of books, fresh flowers. And we wait to meet him for breakfast. Kissing that during the interview, we could wear the. Cellino in. Two. Comes in for his morning, workout? Some He's wearing sort of. Multimillionaire casual? With. Some Gray sweatpants and A? seersucker jacket and white. Dress shirt and so we sit down at a table it sort of an enclosed friend next to his backyard. And we start talking. On. Well, maybe if we could start. Where you just? Ask who answered by. Wire comes. Okay. All right. Great Great and where does Jimmy Lai's story start? Where do you begin this conversation? So Jamila was born in Canton. It's own as Gong Joe in mainland China. How did you born in nineteen forty eight just before the communist takeover of China in nineteen forty nine. and. This is a very wrenching and difficult period for for a Lotta people including Jimmy allies family. There's. Campaigns to take land and property from the wealthy. Do in mainland China was. Shuping business. My family will quite reach. That's why we become any of the people. So you know family was modernized. And by the time, he's a young boy. There's a mass collectivization campaign called the great leap forward. And the results? Widespread starvation because that was a very difficult time mainland because vitamin. From food but sometimes you're hungry you have to eat vegetable rice or. Contribute to famine in which two tens of millions of people are believed to have died. And so while he lives in Canton, which is a comparatively a relatively well off place in. China. It's still quite difficult for him and his family. Well I I work as. A boy. LUGGAGE CARRIER IN A. Way Station in Canton he told us that he was working at a railway station as a porter, and that's where he's sort of I got the inspiration to go to Hong Kong so I had excess. To people who came from Hong Kong. Those guys carried the full. But one of the carrier baggage. Guy Who was. Biting of chocolate. And he gave me A. Negate the Dow chocolate to also. That He. You know he almost half of it. And I was shy I turned around by law. Was this trump in? Hong Kong. Kong must be haven't. And so he tried it and he was amazed. At that moment, he said I have to get to this place. For this poor young man wherever that talk like came from, he wanted to be that's right and it becomes clear and talking to him that food is a very big consideration i. mean this is a period of starvation in China Dan I told my mother. My mother said You could Hong Kong. Would never see you again. a very dangerous and his parents are reluctant to allow him to go. He's quite young. He's twelve. But he tells us that his mother also realized that there was a real risk of him starving my mom eventually allow me to go just because you stay here. Maybe you you would buy. And I left. And look under the fishing boats from cows Hong Kong. Macau he makes his way onto a fishing boat and he's smuggled by a fishing boat into Hong Kong and the same night. I was taken to a fraction tree. As boy worker. The factory manager to those other kids to take me the morning to breakfast and the first time I saw so much food. It's The first time I realized. Food is. Freedom. When you have a choice. I was so emotional food. When if it was at night eight, the first bite. To eat it I don't know why you know it's a peyton respective food. and. Was Poor but I never felt I was poor. Because I was so hopeful. That you know when they are. Ob reach. The. Beginning. and. So what does he do with this newfound sense of freedom in this land where there's finally enough food? What happens next Well, he proves to be a very capable worker in this clothing factory.

"Stir the social justice left who will make up his administration This is not something that just conservative Republicans believe fifty seven percent dependence believe this forty, nine percent Democrats believe it. This you just want start this discussion about law. So that, you know that these feelings thoughts you are having our legitimate, you're not making them up the media is just trying to guess white you like crazy and they are gasline people on all host of issues, which is the theme of today's episode. So why is Comma Harris a bad pick for Joe Biden let's not I will go into her character deficits but why in general why Kamla was a really bad idea for Joe by so So far basically Joe Biden is killing it okay five thirty eight and this is site I. They got twenty sixteen right or more right than most and they give Biden before this announcement seventy three percent chance of taking the White House. And why is this well I see it with my Democrat friends all the time people high respect but you know go blue and they believe strongly in many Americans do because the media has supported debt, the decline of Western civilization declare society that talk -sity hate we have for one another all of this is due to trump okay I. IT really is for people who are on the right. There are some never trumpers and Kinda think this but even. Though my good never-trumper friends understand that trump is a symptom of the decline of our society, he is not a cause of it. He might be a negative feedback loop in some regards, but he isn't he didn't cause the US to start to try to tear each other apart this kind of cold civil war we are already in as I've talked about several episodes back go check that one out if you WanNa know more about this concept and idea. But people who are on the left. They honestly believe that the hate is coming from a single man in White, house? Maybe they'll extend that to the Republicans at large or the conservative culture at large or even brain Christians or whatever. But generally, your mainland normally Democrat is very likely to believe that trump is the cause of the dysfunction in our society today and D- Joe. Biden. To them is a return to normalcy. This goes back to the the the old famous campaign after woodrow, Wilson and then again after FDR, the candidate Stan say we're going back to normalcy baby You know we get harding why love and then Coolidge who's like my favorite president of the twenty th century they won because they said okay. So you guys thought everything was craze the. This president did X. and now we're gonNA bring us all back to normal classic example you guys might be familiar with this Truman and especially President Ike and there's this move by the Republicans that they pass constitutional amendment to make sure that people can't go beyond two terms. There's a great. Cultural and economic renewal. We are America going back to our foundations. Everything's could be peachy Nice were out of the Great Depression. Everything that was bad is now good people generally speaking what that I mean we as humans we all know we all want to go where the grass is greener. That's that's human nature and With your culture, your tribe or whatever believes that candidate X. or Y. is the reason for the problems going on right now, you want to get rid of him. And so to the Democrats Joe. By to people who are on the left, they felt that yeah. Job By might be he's not maybe not progressive or woken up, but he will get rid of the trump guy and really that's the number one priority. I you know I, have my I of very big issues with trump didn't vote for him very likely not to vote for him again this time. So I understand this feeling that we have to get the big orange band out of the office and that way we can return the country back to normal, and so the people who are with the Biden campaign the this was even true at the end of the days when it was, you know just Democrat primary was we're GonNa make Joe Biden as inoffensive as vanilla as milk toast as a flavourless pancake as we possibly can. Okay, we want no one and they see In to be offended by him that we don't want people to feel anger with on a see him. He's like up he's like a wall. He's just like your normal white office building wall at you have no feelings whatsoever and that's okay because our thing is working for the trump and we don't want to give people reasons to not go for not getting rid that trump now people are saying well, Hey. This is a very ethical. You're not putting your guy out there. He's not debating on the full ideas and the matters and he's she's not being front and center as during Normal Merican Campaign We do at least since Kennedy okay with the tea with a television and your cat, it's being front and center. You had the bay primaries the whole nine. That's how American politics has been I seventy some years. Joe Biden is actually in many ways to return to pre Kennedy politics where we're almost, you know you're doing the front porch and so every port shows and even in states like Georgia, Biden has a fighting chance to take this state and while it's technically battleground state, the way things have been lately you would think Georgia would be something that president trump could easily get but that's not the case. The polls are showing that trump is down three, four, six points routinely. Biden. Is Just creaming. The big orange ban currently, he's just just owning the field. And this the strategy, whatever we want to call the front porch strategy call at the the milk toe strategy is working. It's a really smart thing in our day and age of. Social. Media politics by not having something you can get offended about not having something to gain attention on I. Mean that is actually pretty smart because if you have a big enough base and you and there's this one guy pulled pulled pulsing out all this negative stuff. This is a smart way to win an election. Now I, get people could say this is unethical. I mean the there's a very good chance at least under the old this this model on talking about the President Biden would go to the debates because if it's the strategy. this is why and I hope my friends who Democrats care about. Picking of the P like Comma Harris wasn't strategically wise whatever you think of her policies envious. Okay. Because Kamala Harris is a very polarizing figure she similar to trump in this way she's she's open about her her feelings matter. She's not she's not afraid to kind of go way out there now often she goes way out there and she tried to pull back but she went out there You know there are some times in her primary, not dissimilar to trump where she was on both sides of an issue you know I, she was four Medicare for all she was against it than she was back in the middle She is her history has shown that she's someone that is very passionate and very aggressive to to get what she wants is an advantage is a person if you're trying to get through politics, Machiavelli would approve however in American politics. The way we view politicians normally, it is kind of character flaw and then you look at actual her policy issues, things that she is come up very strong on when it comes to executive orders to put it in full gun control when it comes to Private health insurance which she walked back on but I mean, she still was willing to say this out in debates. Those clips are still around I'm sure the the GOP with the people are putting together these TV ads are just. Really happy to be able to grab that clip back. where it was when it comes to her views on fracking, she still is an full on anti fracking ban which whatever your views on it. In I I, the science shows that fracking is really where we're getting most of our our push against global warming the the reason why the US right now is a leader in putting out less carbon emissions is due to fracking. Now, there's an argument to say it may be too violent fracking happens. It's not a good idea but. This is a debate you need to have for sure but in Pennsylvania. Saying you're anti fracking is that's just a great way. To lose that state and that's a very important swing state She has been on incredibly strong on the environmental issues. She was willing she tried to put the Exxon oil exacts into prison for while, I mean when she was at, she was one of these people that. Didn't really want to do the work of being a tough on crime person I'm I'm GONNA clean the city up kind of like Rudy. Giuliani. In the late eighties, early nineties. But she put out the appearance of it and what she did was she basically she she went after people for example, who had used marijuana she put over two thousand people just with marijuana use. That's all they did nothing else and got them into prison and she if she was tough on. Parents of truant kids and this was a big push that she had. I mean we could go on here. You talked to the innocence project people. And? I'll give you an example. Here's a good one joe. Rogan, just talked to big officials. One of them was a founder. Another was New Basser instance project and they talk about Kamla Harrison and to them did the innocence project is firmly a creature of the left and they're like look we're going to be going Biden no matter what because anything anything not trump is better than trump they said clearly that Tom La- Harris is the worst picture buying could make because she was someone that in this is the from that Tulsi Gabbard clip I showed you. In my monologue, a tech at one of these labs, these crime lapse that California law enforcement uses had been found that they were cheating they were making up false tests were stealing drugs, they were they were doing things that are endangering clean evidence to be used for prosecutions, and there are people that were sitting in prison right then and people who are right down in the middle of a in court and you're the Aga. California received this information by law you have to let the defense no, you have to give this information to the public. She withheld that she did not share that. Comma Harris at to the to the criminal justice reform activists is just just an example of the worst kind of law and order prosecutor because Kamala Harris and there have been people that have looked at when she comes in does she have an impact on the crimewave to do the stats, go down and generally speaking most the experts have looked to this? WHO said no because her her efforts were big loud ones but again, really do anything occur tail. Firmly against the drug war. So I guess that probably means that Kamala Harris is someone they probably wouldn't like already but. She has made it so that she has made the the criminal justice activists mad because she went after she kept people falsely in prison. She withheld evidence she went after people in the drug. War. At the same time she's not really a friend to the right because again her efforts were largely. Skin Deep I. Mean they were they were skin deep and then worst kind of way. But there. They were largely ineffective as so when you look at a record as a prosecutor, it's like you're not doing enough to make the people who are like hard on pushing law and order. Happy. But you're doing too much that you're making the people who are crime reformers unhappy. and. She is just a polarizing figure even when you go to her time delay. Her time as a Senator Comma Harris. As soon as she became a senator was very clear that her goal was to advance her political career, and so she would always be front and center to be the loudest in the front, saying the strongest things about whatever subject was in front of her. So she's in she's in the committee and they'll bring in people from ice and then she'll go on this tired about this ice agents say that you're just like the K. k. k. and I mean like really loud and Boisterous, and while I'm sure there are people on the left who you know maybe fifteen percent maybe at most thirty percent of country to this is awesome. Most people special than armies that don't pay attention to politics just kind of want things return normal. They hear that they're like wait what. What they? I think that's a little extreme. Maybe already said this health insurance where she saying we have to get rid of prey to health insurance for everyone and push medicare for all while you put them on the normies like wait what. She was bold front and center when he came to the Brad Kavanagh Situation and when people point to where people went too far when the are going after Cavanaugh sometimes to the point where they are putting their case. To Stop counting on you know if you go if you lean over too far and you use things are too far away from provable evidence, it actually weakens your case Kamala. Harris was one of these people that was actually doing damage to the cause of trying to prevent cavanaugh from making it in. She has not done things really to make friends Eh even Chris Dodd and this was from I wanna Say New York Times I could've been wrong maybe it was Wall Street drug. Chris Dodd said in the interview K. This very long time very influential Democrat senator. He said that he was very concerned about her that she seems to be someone that does plays politics has a game and there was anonymous report that politico put out where he said we interviewed over four dozen Democrats officials in politics. And there was a strong reluctance for many of them about having Kamla Harris as the VP for precisely the reasons I listed she is not really a team player Okay Kamla Harrah's isn't known for boosting other people in politics. She has very strong and open and boisterous on. These are two values that in campaign politics while look great on television I mean the Ao see kind of style of politics. I'm sure we can find someone on the right maybe a Josh Holly on the right He's kind of like this to. The looks great on Fox News or MSNBC is just awful to work with when you're trying to win elections generally speaking and. She is just not someone that fits well at all with the campaign strategy, they had used previous to this. Tuesday. She just wasn't a good fit. To the idea of I'm Joe Biden I'm milk toast I'm vanilla. I'm your old pal. You know me all your life I've I've been front and Center for decades. I'm safe Joe. Biden. You don't like trump. I'm safe vote for me. A Hairs Camara's. Say What you want about. Her is now known as big safe. She's known as being vicious aggressive strong These are these are pronounced to describe her as so before you ever get to the issues that you know I personally am concerned if she got into the Oval Office, you just have to recognize that she could be. A detriment. To the campaign to the strategies now. I could be wrong. I mean I don't think I'm wrong in that the math sense but you know it's a long way from here November even though it's only a few short months. And anything can happen the media is going to carry water. Who the VP was picked on, that can cover up a Lotta sins, and of course, as has always been the case with are the big orange man. He will find ways to shoot himself in the foot. I mean he will find ways destroy the campaign efforts of his people and that by the way that last bit about trump that is in my opinion that's fact we have evidence of story after story after story when he says things, they're just wrong or they come off as being in the worst possible light you could frame it it doesn't help him. And you know if president trump continues with the strategy that he's been stewing. Comma Harris being a firebrand. That is going to be too much of a problem just by itself. So what is the advantage to choosing a Kamala Harris what you get for choosing her as a can't well for number one and this is my best guess There are a lot of insiders that were already pushing her forward. They're happy with Joe Biden kind of put himself into a corner when he said He. Said across to debates. One Obey said, he would choose an African American and other debate said, he would choose a woman kind of ended up. Now you have an African American woman and that's five percent of the population of the US Kaz African Americans make about ten percent. Then you have to choose someone that's enough in politics has a name recognition, Comma Harris's kind of on a very on shortlist. And you know the other ones they go up against you you have people like a Karen Bass, who has the the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. And she she was probably the best next pick. Likely to be picked on their shortlist, but she has some history where she worked with frontline communists, which is a a Cuban. Group. With the Castro regime in Cuba. So that would have been a very bad idea and I get the feeling that Tulsi, she's not African American but Tolsey kind of on the outs right now and so. You know best chance you choose someone that you think some people are in the in Saragan alike, and you're going to pick someone that has name recognition. Here you go what I can't prove but this is my guess is that they chose Comma Harris because they are getting some internal polling right now. Big, campaign operations even smaller ones they do what they can to get idea of what the populace thinks at any point about any issue and their campaign. So they have internal polling they pay for and my guest here is that what we've seen with the the George Floyd protests that. into the never ending summer riots that Gel really badly with a borderline Democrat try sometimes trump sometimes obama voter. That they need to get these people back on track and so they need to pick someone that might say, Hey, we're for law and order to. and that's why they chose Kamala Harris. Hey look. We have this very tough prosecutor. She was so tough. She withheld evidence for people who are Riley convicted. Okay. They won't say that. So there there I tried to frame it as best I could things coming from the political side more from centre-left as they understand, of course of my own biases in there in the mix for the Republicans, the general impression I'm getting from following twitter. Other social media, and reading all the news is Republican special people after work for the trump campaign are pretty happy right now, they are smiles and glee and salivating at the chance to make the ads against the Biden harassed ticket on president trump even said as much. He said shoe was number woodham shortlist I was rooting for her and. If you're a trump began see why she has one heck of a record and she of course being a candidate out there in front of the TV for so long there a lot of material to us. And when you have people who are saying, this is what the general public beliefs that there's a very good chance. Buying is not gonNA make the full four years and you're effectively going to be voting for her to be President Dwight. That that that is not a hard pitch to make. and. So there are many Republicans. who were just like jumping for joy right now they're like. We are in the dumps, buying his killing us the president doesn't help us with these things. All my gosh. They just chose Comma layers. And I saw the reaction over and over and over again are Republicans right in their enthusiasm for the choice by for his vp they might, as the reasons I late here she's a very polarizing figure. She has kind of a shady record at parts at least enough use it as a wedge issue. She is someone that is going to galvanize people who are never trumpers in. Maybe trumpers sometimes trumpers people who are going to be like I sometimes right for the bulwark. And I didn't vote for trump last time but you got the Democrats you pick someone bad enough I just might do it I've had these thoughts even myself because you're thinking well, you take someone that has literally said that if you know Congress, doesn't do what I want. I'm just GONNA, push it through and see when when on the debate stage and the Third Democrat. Debate Joe Binds it's unconstitutional. She makes fun of Joe Biden for that you're like, do we want someone like that in the Oval Office necessarily even from my crock paint activists side and white she is really bad when it comes drug work to we need and other drug warriors president for those reasons, I am very much hoping she does not win but the question is do Americans even care about. Some of those things, this is kind of thing don't think Republicans are getting. There's this belief in the silent trump voter. It's called a concept silent trump voter, which is this idea. There is the set of the silent majority that will come up for trump, but they won't Sich show their support for trump nine even in anonymous polls or surveys. And Being honest I as far as I can understand it. I don't believe this is true to such a significant degree that it's going to turn the election in twenty twenty and as we just saw president trump did what President Obama did you know I have a pen and a phone congress? You don't do what I want to. Here's DACA. President trump just last week. He didn't get what he wanted in a debate two-week debate with the Democrat House. Sorry Democrat controlled House and he just did his own little executive order and there.

"Of Her name and people get this wrong all the time to make it easier for the on C.. Don't get called out as being a hater. It's pronounced Comma Law Harris. So what does the American public think of Miss Harris? Well, let's look at some stats a stack him out Monday about the view of the American public especially Democrats of Joe, Biden as being a nominee for president in the White House the report. Came from Rasmussen. It was a national telephone and online survey that found that fifty nine, percent fifty, nine percent of all likely voters believe it is extremely likely that Biden's running will be president before the end of Biden four year term. This general thought for the American public doesn't stop with Republicans and independents who lean this way forty, nine percent of Democrats according to the survey believe that whoever is the VP pick will? Likely become the president during Biden's first term I bring this up because this is a very important fact you going to be gas all the way till. November, and beyond if you say that Joe Biden isn't quite there that he's frail, he's elderly he talks like dementia patient sometimes, and the evidence is there over and over even political with the announcement of Kamala Harris referred to her as quote Biden's living will unquote so. Everyone knows we all see it Joe Biden is falling apart. The man is not quite there and I feel for him I really do I have a family member that I love dearly, that is struggling with some of these issues. It's hard to watch. It is hard. It's painful when someone loses their cognitive when they go into cognitive decline, it is painful and sad horrible things. So I don't take any joy out of Biden's decline. It is happening and so all of you guys out there who say well I see it but maybe it's just me because the media tells me this isn't happening. They bring on these sites colleges. He's experts say it's not happening. So I must be wrong. And I want to tell you. You're correct. They're lying to you you biden is in the decline physically mentally he just doesn't seem all of their. He seems like an empty suit for whoever's going to be the VP and the the woke stir the social justice left who will make up his administration This is not something that just conservative Republicans believe fifty seven percent dependence believe this forty, nine percent Democrats believe it. This you just want start this discussion about law. So that, you know that these feelings thoughts you are having our legitimate, you're not making them up the media is just trying to guess white you like crazy and they are gasline people on all host of issues, which is the theme of today's episode. So why is Comma Harris a bad pick for Joe Biden let's not I will go into her character deficits but why in general why Kamla was a really bad idea for Joe by so So far basically Joe Biden is killing it okay five thirty eight and this is site I. They got twenty sixteen right or more right than most and they give Biden before this announcement seventy three percent chance of taking the White House. And why is this well I see it with my Democrat friends all the time people high respect but you know go blue and they believe strongly in many Americans do because the media has supported debt, the decline of Western civilization declare society that talk -sity hate we have for one another all of this is due to trump okay I. IT really is for people who are on the right. There are some never trumpers and Kinda think this but even. Though my good never-trumper friends understand that trump is a symptom of the decline of our society, he is not a cause of it. He might be a negative feedback loop in some regards, but he isn't he didn't cause the US to start to try to tear each other apart this kind of cold civil war we are already in as I've talked about several episodes back go check that one out if you WanNa know more about this concept and idea. But people who are on the left. They honestly believe that the hate is coming from a single man in White, house? Maybe they'll extend that to the Republicans at large or the conservative culture at large or even brain Christians or whatever. But generally, your mainland normally Democrat is very likely to believe that trump is the cause of the dysfunction in our society today and D- Joe. Biden. To them is a return to normalcy. This goes back to the the the old famous campaign after woodrow, Wilson and then again after FDR, the candidate Stan say we're going back to normalcy baby You know we get harding why love and then Coolidge who's like my favorite president of the twenty th century they won because they said okay. So you guys thought everything was craze the. This president did X. and now we're gonNA bring us all back to normal classic example you guys might be familiar with this Truman and especially President Ike and there's this move by the Republicans that they pass constitutional amendment to make sure that people can't go beyond two terms. There's a great. Cultural and economic renewal. We are America going back to our foundations. Everything's could be peachy Nice were out of the Great Depression. Everything that was bad is now good people generally speaking what that I mean we as humans we all know we all want to go where the grass is greener. That's that's human nature and With your culture, your tribe or whatever believes that candidate X. or Y. is the reason for the problems going on right now, you want to get rid of him. And so to the Democrats Joe. By to people who are on the left, they felt that yeah. Job By might be he's not maybe not progressive or woken up, but he will get rid of the trump guy and really that's the number one priority. I you know I, have my I of very big issues with trump didn't vote for him very likely not to vote for him again this time. So I understand this feeling that we have to get the big orange band out of the office and that way we can return the country back to normal, and so the people who are with the Biden campaign the this was even true at the end of the days when it was, you know just Democrat primary was we're GonNa make Joe Biden as inoffensive as vanilla as milk toast as a flavourless pancake as we possibly can. Okay, we want no one and they see In to be offended by him that we don't want people to feel anger with on a see him. He's like up he's like a wall. He's just like your normal white office building wall at you have no feelings whatsoever and that's okay because our thing is working for the trump and we don't want to give people reasons to not go for not getting rid that trump now people are saying well, Hey. This is a very ethical. You're not putting your guy out there. He's not debating on the full ideas and the matters and he's she's not being front and center as during Normal Merican Campaign We do at least since Kennedy okay with the tea with a television and your cat, it's being front and center. You had the bay primaries the whole nine. That's how American politics has been I seventy some years. Joe Biden is actually in many ways to return to pre Kennedy politics where we're almost, you know you're doing the front porch and so every port shows and even in states like Georgia, Biden has a fighting chance to take this state and while it's technically battleground state, the way things have been lately you would think Georgia would be something that president trump could easily get but that's not the case. The polls are showing that trump is down three, four, six points routinely. Biden. Is Just creaming..

"It had been freedom of press has been rolling over the years with very incident. We had a financial, times journalist who essentially kicked out at the city two years ago, things like that. But still the press here could still function freely, and that's why Hong Kong was also in media for international news organizations to cover the rest of the region. So. You know without a free press. That has so many implications for how this society will continue how power will be held accountable, and also for the economy was so many meteoric nations potentially leaving. You mentioned that it's a media hub understand that the New York. Times, for example, is moving some of its operations to Seoul are our foreign press. Talking about. Leaving Hong Kong. Definitely near times, of course, made big waves. When they revealed that one, their reporters couldn't get a visa for Hongkong after he had been kicked out of China by the Chinese Government and then on. Monday. This kind of buried in the news about Jimmy Lai. But it was also revealed that the Hong Kong government is now creating a new office under the national. National Security Bureau, which is also new to handle quote unquote sensitive. So visas for journalists, for example, which is the type of thing we see on the mainland I'm certainly, this will absolutely affect Western media organizations and foreign media organizations decisions in the future I'm whether they'll downsize in Hong Kong, change their plans or move out entirely You talked about the influence of Apple Daily's. The publications in Hong Kong. Yesterday, you posted a photo on twitter people lining up in the middle of the night at newsstands to buy the paper as soon as it came out and did that surprise you? You. Can't say surprised me, I think with the space to protests into, express your discontent getting increasingly smaller and Hong, Kong Hongkongers or just getting. So creative in how they do express that and how they. Are, resisting, and how they'll. They're telling the government that they're not going to stand down, and so people were lining up at before them waiting for the first issues to literally come off the press and arrive at newsstands, and they stood in line socially distance in the maximum number of two people as Regulated by the law rules..

Destroy your freedoms. But your prosperity. Right? Now, let me quote to you. I'm going to mispronounce his name because I. Don't speak Chinese, but I'm going to quote to you. Robert Siong the chairman of Sino, land, which is a huge development company in Hong, Kong quote right. The legislation will protect lives, property and public safety. When society is stable. There will be opportunities close quote. So. Here's the argument. Jimmy! Calmed down. Trust Beijing. Yes they, they're not. Democrats in Beijing. They're not liberal. Democrats they're not going to rule Hong. Kong the way Britain ruled Hong. Kong, but They are responsible for a period of economic growth that has lifted half a billion people out of poverty into something that the Western world would recognize as the middle class. They are they are intent on stability in the name of prosperity. And your fellow business tycoons in Hong Kong are saying Jimmy. Stop this. We need stability in order to prosper they. They know what they're doing. They've achieved prosperity for the mainland. And how do you respond to that argument Jimmy? While I. Couldn't. They may need to come out and allegiance. To the CCP. Business. West Interest Is Protected. But. On the outside and the leave it. They. All are shifting the money out from Hong, Kong. Their serendipity properties. Shifting the money from Hong Kong. And also without the rule of law and freedom. Can Posterity. And the world of Hong Kong people be protected. Is China. A country. Good in love. For prosperity. and well to be protected. Why don't they go over there? Why don't they work there? You know how many of the Chinese rich people are moving the money. Stack Mar? US. All the big guys now has treat has to retire. Why they have to retire. Why are you have to give up the position? Great so it's all nonsense. It's all nonsense. Jimmy When we spoke last October again when you visited the Hoover Institution in person last October. The protest movement that was taking place in Hong Kong succeeded. In that Kerry lamb, the chief executive of Hong Kong withdrew. The proposed legislation that would have permitted Beijing to extradite people from Hong Kong to the mainland. She withdrew that from the Hong. Kong legislative, council the protest succeeded. Right now we have new protests against the national security legislation, but This is not a matter for Kerry lamb. Or the Hong Kong Legislative Council. It has been proposed in Beijing. And it and it will be voted on by the national. Congress. In Beijing. Right, what the protest can you Jimmy Lai and your fellow? Protesters hope to accomplish this time. Well, it's becoming a lot more difficult because.

does this go under the movement in Hong Kong China tolerate this is China beginning to see something unraveled were you merely a nuisance for them I think one day China has unravel and that's why we're fighting that I will fight has the motive wrestlers of the world they're sympathetic about what we are fighting yes we are fighting the share value with China with with the US and the West and if each precedes the greater the world has pressure on China and especially now when China the economy is doing well and they are facing a lot of problems they're so afraid of their people you know emulating Hong Kong and go on the street they might give us what we want just to appease US and stop this demonstration because they're in crisis they need to do something and I'm sure that the

You cannot have instant trade financial trey and what Hong Kong is is a very free praise just because the Britches had a very small Kaufman the the the greatest guarantee off people's freedom is that the limitation of the government's power and Hong Kong had Hong Kong had very small Kaufman we had very low tax seven percent off you'll be very envious seventy percent of very free priest and that's why people who have lived there benefit from the free market at so determined now fight for our freedom Jimmy what still on China's still in mainland China what does mainland China what if President Gee could achieve the world that he wanted what would it look like and what position that world with the United States occupied why well I think they wanted just to dominate the ball you know that's the way the Chinese used to fame there's a center of the world and they want to dominate the world and this is what see things and that's why he's building the ballot enroll and I think this is a tiny strip that is you know in this country in among academics in this country or whether he really is concerned with global domination of some kind and your argument would be that if she had the world he wanted he would be the top man in the world yeah definitely that's what they want and what position would Hong Kong if she could have if she could get on the phone to you tonight and give you directions directives and say Jimmy here's what we're GonNa do with Hong Kong what would he say what does he want for Hong Kong he just want Hong Kong to be the same as any city in China they don't want Hong Kong to be free they just contour rate of fee city which doesn't follow the same values in China and this is a form the is in Hong Kong in the United States Jimmy Jimmy Lai I'm quoting you. President trump understands the Chinese like no president has understood them he's very good at and with gangsters would you care to elaborate explain that state ended the biggest gangsters this what they know how to deal with this they don't follow rules a lot of people wonder why China cannot Reuss any competition has a game grew commercial competition has ru that the Chinese Leifer Foro just because they never look at commercial a petition as competition they look at it as warfare is never a competition for them is always warfare for them whatever they do is warfare because as the tater the outside will is always the potential enemy that's the way they look at the Jimmy Lyon quoting you once again the hardships of the trade war America are real but they are also short term the question is whether America's willing to endure short-term sacrifice for long-term peace close quote you worry proponent of the trump administration's attempt to push back against China by using trade the tariffs don't bother you right I think the right thing that trump EPA station is doing is to push China for restructuring subst structural change if they don't change if they don't follow the rule Steve They don't buy into the vest and values the conflict of values will create mayhem conflicts in the world will never have peace you know we Eto and do the show turn sacrificed for the long term peace don't just have the deal without having China change the behavior of the world out of is when they become the biggest for me we have to confront the biggest enemy we will have to endure their way of doing is this the same that they treat the NBA. Recently we will constantly have to endure this kind worrying is time for us to confront him to make sure that they become part of the world community they become trust partner of the free market and reliable neighbor off the world community otherwise the world will not have he's we have to stand for Jimmy you just mentioned the NBA for my wife who may not have followed the it's actually she did follow it earlier this month Darrell Maury general manager of the Houston Rockets tweeted a message in support of the Chrissy protesters in Hong Kong the Chinese government denounced him and Maury was subjected to trolling suffering tens of thousands of pro-china tweets then just last week Lebron James One of the greatest basketball players ever entered the controversy he said quote I just think that is informed you never know the ramifications that could happen not only for the League but for all of us in American for people in China as well so you have Maurice up for Hong Kong and Lebron James slapping him down because of course the NBA has investments to protect and my question for you is doesn't Lebron James have a point isn't business business and isn't it right for business to protect its estimate when business is business that's why you get booty by China MBA it is a very good example. NBA is a household Eichel this MB episode actually has gone down to people's heart and soul of American people they feel that they are been bully because I M B is a big part of the identity is a cultural Eichel so you entry China definitely will will not learn from this they will always be people you've wanted to come to make money in my treat you have to follow my room which is have you ever laid down your moral integrity and dignity to business with us I think this will be felled by the American people I can see the future as a parent out to the environmental problems company would pollute the environment the customer we we've framed from goose from them and that's why a lot of company the change from Pori back to paperback and in future any company who bowed down to just by laying down the moral authority integrity or dignity that will hurt the dignity of American people and the consumer we refrain from buying goods from them I think this will be the greatest perisher the American people you can impose on China and I think we'll becoming the nature of liberty Chinese with whom I've spoken over the last couple of months make a couple of observations about Hong Kong here's one when Hong Kong you was returned to Chinese control nineteen ninety-seven the economy of Hongkong represented one fifth of the entire economy of China and today that figure is only three percent well that's the unless less than that less than that that's the first observation here's the second observation young people in UNCON- been priced out of their own housing market in large part because investors people have made money in the mainland and now they're buying properties in Hong Kong in other words so my friends who grew up in the mainland tell me this these claims this protest in favor of accuracy democracy the desire for democracy is only superficial what really drives the situation is economics questions surreal wellbeing you've got a bunch of kids in Hong Kong who by Chinese standards are already very wealthy and they're whining effectively because their future is going to be more difficult than it than their parents future and Jimmy Lai's this what to that while this is the way China looks at the the in Hong Kong because they look at Hong Kong commercial city if they make money have a good life that's all they need body with our so yes true the real estate price is check of very high in Hong Kong because you have a lot of rich Chinese who come to Hong Kong to real estate's when they buy real estate the maps aspiring appraise to stay they buying the role the freedom the human right the free press all that free institutional valued by because they're reading to pay so much for this value they don't mind paying very high price for the US thing they are paying so much for the value of freedom at the same time they think that we did it is this contract sorry they figured we'd just fox nothing eat have a good life and that's it no hardware we need to solve where also we need to Russian of freedom we need free we meet meaning in life you know we need dignity as a human stopped US food money Jimmy we are often told we in this country are often told democracy liberty freedom of speech freedom of religion and those are Western values yes China has a different civilization a great civilization ancient civilization the values are different conception of human dignity is different and you argue you argue what that Western values are in in fact universal you can be a good Chinese and protest in favor of democracy and freedom of speech while Whoa Dan issue reversal the modern technology the modern institution the modern way of market the modern way of life.

"Jimmy Lai was ten years old he lived in southern China and he made money carrying suitcases at the local train station one day. A guy got off the train and told Jimmy he had just come in from Hong Kong. Jimmy Hart Stories about Hong Kong before it was supposedly this magical unbelievably wealthy place but you know Jimmy figured whatever people tell stories. Jimmy was carrying the guy's bag through the station. The guy started eating a chocolate bar when they got to where they were going. Jimmy put the guys bags down and the guy gave Jimmy the rest of the chocolate so I turn my back and tried it and I said Shit. Wow what's it is. He said chocolate. I said why Hong Kong must be heaven. You would never tasted chocolate fair I. I never heard of chocolate so I that moment determined that I'm good escaped to Hong Kong escaped to Hong Kong in late. Fifties Hong Kong was not part of China. It was a British colony and this was a moment when China was closed off from the rest of the World Chinese. People were not allowed to set foot outside the country without special permission from the government from the Chinese Communist Party and the Party was radically remaking China they had forced farmers to give up their land and work on collective farms and partly as a result at this moment when Jimmy Lai I tasted chocolate. China was in the middle of a famine that would kill tens of millions of people so to get out of China. Jimmy found a smuggler who hit him in the bottom of a fishing boat with a few dozen other people they left around midnight and were in Hong Kong the next afternoon he didn't have any money he had to go that night to start working at a glove factory repeats like twelve and a half years old but the next morning as he walked through the streets around the factory saw all these little food stands where ordinary people you know poor factory workers like him were eating these big bowls of noodles and rice porridge food was just everywhere foot everywhere and the people sitting with you was cheerful late. It was such a new phenomenon for me. That's when he realized that all the stories he'd heard about Hong Kong they were true. I knew that moment I'm in a different world..
