JEFF J. BROWN—Since Hong Kong was returned to the Mainland in 1997 (the Basic Law treaty), ending Britain’s colonial rule over this tiny region, Eurangloland has used it as a base to sabotage the CPC. In every country where the West works to subvert the peoples’ will, local lackeys are cultivated, to show off supposed honest faces and sincere do-gooders. These toadies are wined, dined, feted in the West and through bogus foundations and NGOs, are showered with money.

SAM MITRANI—The police were not created to protect and serve the population. They were not created to stop crime, at least not as most people understand it. And they were certainly not created to promote justice. They were created to protect the new form of wage-labor capitalism that emerged in the mid- to late-19th century from the threat posed by that system’s offspring, the working class.This is a blunt way of stating a nuanced truth, but sometimes nuance just serves to obfuscate.
