So the Bad Karma meter has gone off the charts in Hong Kong this weekend.
But what in fact was it that set the Bad Karma meters jumping, crazily?
Was it the Democratically, elected opposition for wasting tax payers money on a meaningless by-election?
"NOOOOooooooooo"Was it the DAB and the Liberal parties for missing a great opportunity to take some more seats in the Legislature?
"NOOOOooooooooo"Was it the stiffs in the HK Government for working behind the scenes to put as many niggly little problems as possible to prevent a smooth election?
Well, Maybe.... but NOOOOOOOOoooooooooooWas it CE Donald Tang and his cronies for not fulfilling their≥ civic duty, as prescribed by his government, by opting out of a democratic election?
Well, yes, the meters certainly twitched at such a brazenly un-democratic actions, but NOOOOOOooooooo, this wasn't the reason.So, what on earth could it be that created so much bad karma this weekend in Hong Kong?
Well, the cause of the Bad Karma Meters nearly bending of the dial were the parents and grandparents of HK's children.
"What?" I hear you say, "Surely not."
Yes, I'm afraid to say that a huge amount of group karma got paid into the account as HK parents and grandparents took more steps to selling out their childrens' future with excuses like;
- I want harmony
- I'm not interested in politics
- I'm only interested in local issues
- and other such dross...
HK Grandparents and parents, who are much too preoccupied with their children's education to worry about political matters are effectively "giving" away their children's future at a cheap price.
The Government's tactic of dumbing down the general population by preoccupying them with "local" issues is working and the parents and grandparents, for the sake of the the future generations, are lapping it up with a spoon.
For the price of "people's livelihoods" NOW, they're selling out their children's futures tomorrow.
Well done HK parents and Grandparents - after all, why would your children need a free and democratic future tomorrow when they can get an "A" at school today!
