Supporters of then-U.S. President Trump attacked Capitol Hill at the beginning of the month. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying compared the incident with Hong Kong’s anti-revision demonstrators breaking into the Legislative Council the year before. He criticized the US for double standards on violent incidents. Democrats pointed to both. The causes and processes are different.

Tian Beichen, member of the Legislative Council of the Real Political Roundtable, said on a radio program this morning (24th) that some people compared the two things and even used the US police to open fire on the demonstrators, showing the restraint of the actions of the local police. However, he believed that the comparison should not be forced, let alone This proves that the other act is right or wrong: Even if the US police choose to open fire, it does not mean that Hong Kong cannot solve the problem by other means.

Tian Beichen believes that the occurrence of the incident has a lot to do with the development of social media, referring to the market for extremism, and that reflecting on the incident is important to those who really care about the development of democracy.

Tian Beichen said on the program that each country, system, and even demonstrations have their own reasons and characteristics. He described it as unwise to force comparisons based on events from different times and places.

The New Democrat Party Chairman Ye Liu Shuyi has also publicly compared the United States' incidents of breaking into the Congress and Hong Kong into the Legislative Council on many occasions, in order to criticize American politicians and overseas media for "very different" attitudes.

Tian Beichen emphasized that he does not agree with the rationalization of violence in Hong Kong and criticizes breaking into the Legislative Council without meetings as a seemingly cowardly and reckless act of venting anger.

He mentioned that in the early days of the anti-amendment incident, supporters of "civil disobedience" once believed that destructive actions would be no problem as long as they did not hurt people.

He believes that as long as the violence is accepted, there will be reasons to heat up the incident in the end, and ultimately harm everyone.

Trump proves that extremism has a market

In the United States, Tian Beichen believes that political ideas should be aside from thinking about what is happening in the United States.

He pointed out that Trump has always used his extremism as a selling point since he participated in the Republican primary elections, and his victory was based on rumors and lies, and that those who were elected in the two-party system should maintain a balance between both sides. , No longer applies to Trump, and his extreme methods have also attracted diehard supporters, sowing seeds for future destruction. After this defeat, he made more unreasonable accusations against the election and finally called on supporters to be in Congress. Assemble and lead to tragedy.

Tian Beichen's analysis pointed out that the incident proved that extremism has its market, and under the prevalence of social media, even if many of Trump's remarks are likely to be false news, they still affect many people.

He believes that how to make good use of the digital world and strike a balance between freedom, self-discipline and supervision is the key to human civilization in the future.
