Hong Kong is just China now

Hong Kong is no longer recognized as autonomous by America.  That will have a dramatic impact on US-China trade, and unfortunately also on the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong.  Hopefully China sees that and backs off, but it's not likely.  The underpinning of the Chinese communist government is the ability to take advantage of easy trade terms with the rest of the world and cheap Chinese labor to continue it's totalitarian regime.

The only way out for the world, and the people of China, particularly Hong Kong at this moment, is to remove that underpinning that is enabling China.  It's tough but necessary.  This would have been easier for everyone if it had been done 5, 10 or 15 years ago. Doing business with China, is enabling a repressive and yes brutal, communist regime.
