By transmitting the following article, Mr. LI Ka-shing, Mr. CHEUNG Shih-shing, put it in a nutshell and make it clear that the situation in Hong Kong is now in a good state for reading. Li Ka-shing has something to say, no matter what mistakes the Chinese Communist Party has made, No matter how many corrupt elements there are in the Communist Party, we, as citizens of China, should have no quarrel with the Communist Party.

Whatever the reason, it is a historical choice to govern by the Communist Party in contemporary China.

At least now and for a long time, both prestige and governance, There is no party or force that can replace the Communist Party, let alone the new Central Committee headed by Xi Jinping, which has given us hope and positive energy. A political party, like a man, can make mistakes, or correct them; he can get ill, or he may recover.

If we leave the Communist Party now, China will be in chaos. If China is in chaos, it will be our people who will suffer.

There have been a lot of extreme articles on the Internet recently that are not aimed at denouncing the corrupt forces in the Party. These articles ignore the great achievements of China since the founding of the Peoples Republic of China, especially since the reform and opening up policy, They include all the mistakes of the Communist Party, all the crimes, the clearness of the data, the precision of the language, and the closeness of the style, and they are very provocative and demagogic.

It is not like the spontaneous discontent of the people to vent, like a well-organized and premeditated offensive, which cannot without doubt the political motivations and the international context behind this.

As we all know, the rise of China has caused the panic of some international forces. Some countries, such as the United States and Japan, are trying hard to put down and block China, Its practical purpose is not to promote more universal, advanced ideas, but to serve exclusively the interests of other countries. They gave advice and money to cultivate the hostile forces against the Communist Party, There is only one real purpose, that is, to disrupt China, to disperse China, to stagnate or regress China’s development and to become their vassals, so that they can seek hegemony by force.

Look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and Egypt. These are American masterpieces. What do the American people get from these troubled countries? Did they really benefit from the pro-American elements among them?

Fellow countrymen, open your eyes, see clearly, don’t be easily brainwashed, don’t follow excitedly, follow the hubbub, be used and be proud of yourself. We are Chinese, we cant watch this country go to disaster. If we have a chance to help our country, we should do our best. If we do not have the opportunity or the ability to contribute to the country, we should at least not make trouble, should we? If the country falls apart, we all suffer. The least we can do at the moment is not to say, pass on or do anything that is detrimental to the stability of a country, nor to do anything, nor to be curious, nor to watch. ~ Li Ka-shing
