Cultural Article of the Day: Hong Kong Protests [wall street journal]


Sometimes you need to take a step back to see things clearly. Read this article and you might find that to be the case. I think the societal problems in Hong Kong are highly reflective of some of the wealth inequality issues that are present within our country. The problems are to a much higher degree (41 billionaires controlling 74.4% of the country’s economic output), but that allows us to more clearly understand their causes and effects. More importantly, it allows us a better ability to evaluate whether the protestors are right or wrong.

Read and decide for yourself.
