It is the best of time, it is the worst of time.

In the darkest days of Hong Kong democracy, when everything seems hopeless, the HKSAR-developer conglomerate dominating all state affairs with no checks or balances, backed by the totalitarian and all powerful communist party of China,
when the youth find no future,
when the establishment, with the legislature, executive and mass media in their hands, and the judiciary threatened, do everything they can to silent dissent,

there is a new light: through optical fibres,
citizens communicate directly to legislators in manners, urgency and audacity yet unseen;
legislators talk directly and unfiltered to the camera of the people;
questions in the streets become questions in the chamber;
decisions and actions in the chamber are instantly discussed by the citizen.

Hong Kong has broken new grounds in and given new meanings to Representative Democracy.

the quality and standards of gas supplied by sinopec(hong kong), a branch of the national petroleum conglomerate of communist china, has been questioned, after a massive series of dead-engines reported by taxi and minibus drivers in Hong Kong.

The question is, will it evolve into another political crisis for Hong Kong, or even Peking?

the erosion of quality control is just a symptom of the erosion of hong kong values, which were too fragile in the first place.

what is needed to repair the harms? and how did the erosion happen in the first place? what is the key ingredient that was missing? why did hong kong become a headless duck after the brits said goodbye?
