You may not believe me but what you see from your media are not what's happening in HK, see the following clips for example....
Has it ever occurred to you that it's possible for a bunch of people could be singing "Do You Hear the People Sing" at a certain time and a certain place and that others could be yelling and pushing a different time and possibly a different place?

This is FSU. We didn't fall off the turnip truck. At least not all of us.

Rutabaga. :shuffle:

I do think people tend to glorify large protest movements when they happen against regimes that are not well regarded. Usually there is a lot more to the story. I haven't followed the Hong Kong situation much but am interested in more analysis of what is happening.

Um, it is happening as there is video of it. But large protests are often messy and meant to cause trouble. So both things can be true as well as anything fitting in-between. They wouldn't be effective if they did not disrupt people's lives and with that some times bad things can happen as well when people are fighting for a cause they believe in.
