Quote of the Month (January)

Writes Mr. Aaron Jacob over at Theden:

Hong Kong ranks highly on numerous international measurements, with an intelligent population, little corruption, and a high standard of living. So the question begs to be asked: why do you need universal suffrage if everything is functioning excellently? If you’ve got a great working government, who cares how many people can cast a ballot? Especially given democracy’s long track record of destruction and dysfunction, the idea that democracy ought to be foisted off on Hong Kong as a positive development is eminently stupid—unless, of course, you’re a progressive.
