I don't think that right encompasses brain washing classes of children into having a pre disposed  ...

You have a tough time with reality I see.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Tell Beijing you want Chris Patten back-he's under-employed working for the BBC.

Yes  ..........

Working for the BBC ...........

Nothing more natural than a man who single-handedly introduced democracy to Hong Kong before leaving ........

I just never understood why Hong Kongers never needed this for the preceeding 150 years  ........

They were sowing the seeds of democracy in the 80's, Patten took over as the last Governor in 1992 when he lost his MP's seat.

The question is do they want it ?  Thats a democratic question in itself-i dont see any polls for it but ive seen pro-democracy protests.

But, as the handover to China in 1997 approached, Britain sowed the seeds for a democratic process.

In 1985, indirect elections started, with a council of 12 legislators chosen to represent the various sectors of the economy.

The following year, the first mass pro-democracy rally was held and in 1997, as Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule, a parting gift was written into the declaration signed by Lady Thatcher and Deng Xiaoping: the legislature of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region "shall be constituted by elections", it said.

China has kept to the agreement, although it has not granted universal suffrage. Instead, it has repeatedly foiled pro-democracy activists.

In 2004, the goal for a general election was pushed back from 2012 to 2017 without any explanation. The move reneged on a promise that Hong Kong itself would be allowed to set a timetable.
