When prosperity trumps demands for democracy

http://flip.it/eBAqsb

In the U.S., democracy gave Americans Trump and white supremacy after Obama took the country to the extreme left. Bush Jr. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq to look for WMD. Clinton gave Americans a blue dress to remember.

Democracy split America right in the middle and left huge debt to be paid by future generations.

In Hong Kong, democracy gave the city a black eye, riots on the street, months of civil unrest and a doomed future.

Some people in Hong Kong took their anger to the street not because they don’t have freedom of expression.which they obviously do, but because their hopes for a better life were gone.

The problem was not a political one but an economic one. These protesters should blame the 2009 financial crisis started by the U.S. which gave the world unprecedented inequality, rising equity and real estate markets.
