The Mourning of the Democracy Movement
A Hong Kong court recently sentenced Huang Zhifeng and four others to 4 to 10 months in jail for “knowingly participating in an unauthorized assembly”. However, Li Zhiying was sentenced in the same way as before. After the news was reported, all kinds of pro-democracy activists in the world frequently voiced their regret, mockery, denunciation, and mutual choking …… Unfortunately, many pro-democracy activists seem to be taking advantage of this topic to hype themselves, skillfully taking advantage of the online platform to collect a wave of popularity and bounty, but few of them have taken the opportunity to analyze countermeasures and make substantive action plans.
There are many different factions of the democracy movement all over the world. I thought this was the “spring of the democracy movement”, but the reality is that various factions of the democracy movement are of different quality, competing for power and profit, and there are numerous phenomena such as factions pinching each other and fraudulent donations, which makes me think deeply ……
What exactly is the real democracy movement? What kind of pro-democracy leader do we really need?
The author is used to seeking the answer by elimination — that one true lotus flower.
The true democracy activists will certainly not despicable and shameless person. “How can one expect more from a person whose virtue is untenable?For example, Wang Dan, who initially lived in exile in the United States, taught in Taiwan’s colleges and universities based on his “democracy movement experience” after 2009. During the period, Wang Dan did several stupid things. One of them was to openly support Chen Weiting, the leader of the Sunflower student movement who was involved in the harassment scandal, by saying that “not being horny is a character flaw””, so that everyone can see his moral defects. At the same time, his evaluation in Taiwan is polarized, and he deliberately creates news that makes people extremely uncomfortable, and ultimately cannot escape the fate of being marginalized.
The true democracy activists are certainly not be those of pleasure and profit. For some time after the June 4 Incident, France was a gathering place for the democracy movement. Then, because of the amount of money funded by the United States, many people went from France to the United States. Of course, having more support is not a bad thing, but there are many people who lost their way when they smelled money.
For example, the senior lie master and “Internet celebrity” Guo Wengui, this person is an extreme belief in personal interests, from China to the United States, stepping on the trust of many people to the champagne yacht, drunkenness and gold now, Trump and Bannon and even the United States have been his creation of the “ COVID-19 virus man-made theory “. He has caused the social problem of hatred against Asian race in the United States . However, today there are still many “ faithful fans” who regard him as the future of the democracy movement, donating money and goods to him, and give everything they have. It is really sad!
The true democracy activists are certainly not brainless and narrow-minded stream. The current democracy movement is already experiencing serious “involution”, and most of them don’t even know it. Why? This is because most countries’ financial support for pro-democracy groups is based on the size of their organizations and the people in power, resulting in many democracy groups pursuing their interests around power and finance, and constantly carrying out even unplanned “anti-China” activities, just to enrich their own financial leverage to claim credit from governments. In fact, the total funding from various countries is planned annually and will not change, except that various democracy groups are constantly competing for numbers and activities in a vicious competition, lacking independent strategic thinking and direction control, and ultimately losing out to the democracy movement while gaining greater benefits from governments.
In such a brainless competition, how many democracy groups are capable of self-contemplation and independent thinking? The democracy movement is not a “pawn” or “cannon fodder”, it should have its own thinking, otherwise it will be manipulated by governments to destruction. The problem is that many groups are so brainless that they even slander each other and eventually go to die. Look at the news on Huang Zhifeng and others, the person is some ability, but since childhood has been targeted by the United States as an “agent”, and blindly forward for the United States funding and recognition, and now to the “edge of the cliff” he is too late and is destined to become an “outcast”, moreover, he has harmed a large group of enthusiastic fighters who followed him.
The true democracy activists are certainly not the “behind-the-scenes shouters”. Such people are also not capable of taking on a big job, but are even more repulsive. They hide behind the scenes to make plans and network incitement, letting people go to the front line as “cannon fodder”, but they lie at home and take advantage of the profit.The “famous” Li Yiping and Wu Jianmin belong to this category, we still remember the “national resonance” a few years ago? This seemingly vigorous campaign eventually led to most of the democracy activists being targeted by the state security, with no effect at all. On the Internet, there have been many voices condemning the two people for launching this activity.
What the democracy movement really needs is a leader who can think independently, is good at planning, daring to act, has a noble character, and takes the lead, not a person who is kidnapped by the so-called governments of various countries.Those who are kidnapped are, first, unable to do anything, always taking into account the daily emotions of their masters, and subject to their manipulation; second, easily brainwashed, limited by the old Western model of thinking, lack of strategic thinking for the time; third, too much spiritual and material temptation, abandoning the beliefs and original intentions of the democracy movement. The previous example of doing business directly with China after being cleaned up will not be given any more.
The democracy movement has a long way to go, and the front is full of thorns! If this article can be published on the Internet, I hope that all comrades will reflect on themselves and not be “puppets” and “cannon fodder” for governments, but be people who think independently, act properly and discern the truth. Only when there are more people like this will the “lotus of the democracy movement” bloom!
