@Schweden No, Hong Kong is not the same as China!! Hong Kong had been a British colony until it was returned to China in 1997. It is now a "special administrative region" with its own government. It is under Chinese rule but the political, legal and economic systems are all different, and the degree of freedom is much greater including freedom of religion, freedom of speech, political freedom etc. The culture is also significantly different from that in mainland China. Right now the people in HK are struggling to resist the increasing influence and intervention from mainland China and fearing for a loss in the freedom of speech.

It would actually make a nice story if humon wants to draw this part of history. Hong Kong is like an abandoned child of Britain.

this video is pretty cool, its about a made up american news team that explains why america is not number one anymore... the first steps to solving a problem is to knowledge there is one.

@zachowon I doubt Reagan would be any better. He was very homophobic and didn't really give a damn about the healthcare.

@DouglasFur7
Realy? I had no idea that Hong Kong had an indipendent flag, but it makes sense considering its history. Thanks.
