Be alert to growing 'occupation' culture (freeloaders and deadbeats hit Hong Kong?)

With only slightly over a thousand students, the entire playground of a school will be fully packed during the morning assembly. How can cramped Central, with its numerous high-rise buildings but limited open areas, provide enough room for the "peaceful and harmonious" occupation intended for tens of thousands of protestors? In such a circumstance, the "Occupy" movement may easily turn out to be chaos, with fierce clashes or even violence. If the movement with tens of thousands of protestors is successfully carried out, they might be arrested for their illegal act, resulting in social disorder and serious repercussions.

Advocates should have called off the "Occupy Central" movement and urged the SAR government to conduct a consultation on the arrangement for the 2017 CE Election. Instead, they persist with the movement which has become an issue not only to scholars and pastors, but also to members of political parties and labor unions, who are all ready to get involved in the "Occupy" movement through different channels. Other major world powers are also seeking opportunities to join the movement. After a chaotic occupation of Central, the movement might bring about more upheaval than peace and order to Hong Kong.

If the "Occupy Central" movement turned out to be a "success", it would never give way. This culture of "occupation" would continue to flourish. For instance, followers would occupy the church on the ground of its poor management. Similarly, students could also occupy their classrooms or even the whole campus in the name of justice and civic disobedience if academic bureaucrats rose to power in schools. It would come as no surprise that workers would occupy factories because of their unscrupulous employers. Recently, many teachers have expressed their fears about the growing culture of occupation.

The "Occupy Central" movement, with tens of thousands of protestors, is tantamount to committing an unlawful activity together.

That's the goal, Ho. Oh, and keep a close watch on your wallet.

Good luck, Occupiers. What could go wrong with that?
