    How would facial recognition even work in an asian country like HK?

    Their computers must be ultra-sophisticated to tell their faces apart.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    But the trumpettes and shylls keep saying that everyone in the rest of the world are communists.
    That is just fearmongering, THIS is really why they're so afraid of immigrants.

    This was published in 1997, here is a more in-depth CURRENT look at the 10 planks.
    TEN PLANKS OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO (in America!)

    This is Marx, Engel, Lenin
    Could this be happening in America? If so, how?
    Our “elected representatives” have passed laws implementing these anti-freedom concepts. The communists have achieved a de facto FEDERAL SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT in America.
    In 1848 Karl Marx and Frederick Engels wrote a book outlining a political ideology, titled “The Communist Manifesto”. Marxism’s basic theme is that the proletariat (the “exploited” working class of a capitalistic society) will suffer from alienation and will rise up against the “bourgeoisie” (the middle class) and overthrow the system of “capitalism.” After a brief period of rule by “the dictatorship of the proletariat” the classless society of communism would emerge. In his Manifesto Marx described the following ten steps as necessary steps to be taken to destroy a free enterprise society!!
    Notice how many of these conditions, foreign to the principles that America was founded upon, have now, in 1997 (WHAT!!! – heading into 2013 where are we at now?), been realized by the concerted efforts of socialist activists? Remember, government interference in your daily life and business is intrusion and deprivation of our liberties!
    First Plank: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes. (Zoning – Model ordinances proposed by Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover widely adopted. Supreme Court ruled “zoning” to be “constitutional” in 1921. Private owners of property required to get permission from government relative to the use of their property. Federally owned lands are leased for grazing, mining, timber usages, the fees being paid into the U.S. Treasury.)
    Second Plank: A heavy progressive or graduated incometax. (Corporate Tax Act of 1909. The 16th Amendment, allegedly ratified in 1913. The Revenue Act of 1913, section 2, Income Tax. These laws have been purposely misapplied against American citizens to this day.)
    Third Plank: Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (Partially accomplished by enactment of various state and federal “estate tax” laws taxing the “privilege” of transfering property after death and gift before death.)
    Fourth Plank: CONFISCATION OF THE PROPERTY OF ALL EMIGRANTS AND REBELS. (The confiscation of property and persecution of those critical – “rebels” – of government policies and actions, frequently accomplished by prosecuting them in a courtroom drama on charges of violations of non-existing administrative or regulatory laws.)
    Fifth Plank: Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. (The Federal Reserve Bank, 1913- -the system of privately-owned Federal Reserve banks which maintain a monopoly on the valueless debt “money” in circulation.)
    Sixth Plank: Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State. (Federal Radio Commission, 1927; Federal Communications Commission, 1934; Air Commerce Act of 1926; Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938; Federal Aviation Agency, 1958; becoming part of the Department of Transportation in 1966; Federal Highway Act of 1916 (federal funds made available to States for highway construction); Interstate Highway System, 1944 (funding began 1956); Interstate Commerce Commission given authority by Congress to regulate trucking and carriers on inland waterways, 1935-40; Department of Transportation, 1966.)
    Seventh Plank: Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. (Depart-ment of Agriculture, 1862; Agriculture Adjustment Act of 1933 — farmers will receive government aid if and only if they relinquish control of farming activities; Tennessee Valley Authority, 1933 with the Hoover Dam completed in 1936.)
    Eighth Plank: Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies especially for agriculture. (First labor unions, known as federations, appeared in 1820. National Labor Union established 1866. American Federation of Labor established 1886. Interstate Commerce Act of 1887 placed railways under federal regulation. Department of Labor, 1913. Labor-management negotiations sanctioned under Railway Labor Act of 1926. Civil Works Administration, 1933. National Labor Relations Act of 1935, stated purpose to free inter-state commerce from disruptive strikes by eliminating the cause of the strike. Works Progress Administration 1935. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, mandated 40-hour work week and time-and-a-half for overtime, set “minimum wage” scale. Civil Rights Act of 1964, effectively the equal liability of all to labor.)
    Ninth Plank: Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country. (Food processing companies, with the co-operation of the Farmers Home Administration foreclosures, are buying up farms and creating “conglomerates.”)
    Tenth Plank: Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production. (Gradual shift from private education to publicly funded began in the Northern States, early 1800’s. 1887: federal money (unconstitutionally) began funding specialized education. Smith-Lever Act of 1914, vocational education; Smith-Hughes Act of 1917 and other relief acts of the 1930’s. Federal school lunch program of 1935; National School Lunch Act of 1946. National Defense Education Act of 1958, a reaction to Russia’s Sputnik satellite demonstration, provided grants to education’s specialties. Federal school aid law passed, 1965, greatly enlarged federal role in education, “head-start” programs, textbooks, library books.

    The French yellow jackets have destroyed almost all traffic cameras in France.
    (There were a ton of them, France lowered the speed limit to essentially 50 mph, and then put up auto-ticket speeding camera everywhere)

    It is ironic they are waving brit flags in Hong Kong, when Britain has the highest CCTV camera per person ration in the world.

    And these protests are fueled by technology.

    People want some aspects of technology, but not others.
    And that is their right, of course.

    The question is how do they win?

    The fiction of capitalist China is about to come crumbling down.
    And even if they are fascist instead of communist they are still brutal and evil tyrants.

    The Chi-Coms understand that they will get nowhere appealing to "New Soviet Man" austerity if that means lining up for three blocks to buy shoddy Chairman Mao jackets made in Laos.

    Just like the New Bolsheviks here understand that class struggle will not play out and have switched from class to ethnicity.

    The Bolsheviks realized that "class struggle" is not going to sell well in a nation where even the most dimwitted of people can easily acquire $700 iPhones, enough food to make one morbidly obese inside of a few months and 60 inch flat screen TVs. Those a few points higher up on the IQ scale can easily afford a family sedan with more power, features and performance than that of a Maserati or Porsche from 30 years ago. They can afford a 6000 square foot McMansion if desired.

    All on easy credit terms.

    No, class envy won't sell.

    But ethnic envy, oh hell yeah, that sells by the bucketload.

    If you can't get the Bolshevik/Jacobin mob whipped up to "take the rich man's stuff" you sure as hell can get them whipped up to "take the white man's stuff".

    Especially after convincing them that everything that evil white man has, only exists because he enslaved your people.

    Brilliant plan, actually, in a Machiavellian way.
