To this day there is surprisingly few pieces of news from authoritative media channels that bother to explain to the public what extradition even is - let alone giving a comprehensive view of what the historical background, global precedences and consequences of either outcomes of the proposed legislation are.
Meanwhile there’s no shortage of media out there simplistically choosing to operate under / lay the primary foundation of the issue based on the assumption that with the passing of this bill, China gets to just march into HK and snatch whomever they want with ease. (People actually believe this?) With zero understanding of the procedures of basic law, young people are out there mindlessly feeding into an intense herd mentality, “fighting” just to fit in, (because this protest has simply became a trend for the younger generation to gain a common topic between friends) for a cause they barely understand.
A lot of youth have been swayed into forming relatively limited views on among other things:
1) The essence of the issue.
2) What the proposed legislation even entails.
3) If the bill passes, what it would look like in practice / in consideration of various current geopolitical dynamics.
I only hope those who have the mental capacity to do so (as some people are truly limited by their horizons, education, circumstances to take on an unbiased view) can try to at least take an objective stance and consider things in a thorough / rational manner. And whichever side they end up associating with, fine.
As with a lot of things in this world, there is no absolute right or wrong. But it is important for yourself to fully understand a subject matter before letting other people's words slip into your head and turning this into your truth and reality. Make your own judgement, understand the situation, have your own independent thoughts and opinions. Stop listening, start thinking.
