Claiming that the Basic Law is an "authorization law" and there is no residual power

In addition, when talking about the "constitutional relationship between the state and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region," the briefing pointed out that the values ​​of patriotism should be cultivated among students.

The briefing described the Basic Law as an "authorization law." The central government granted Hong Kong a "high degree of autonomy." "All powers not granted should belong to the central government and not in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region."

In the section of "Thinking Questions" it was pointed out that some people claim that the central government's power to administer the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is limited to defense and diplomatic matters, and all other things fall within the scope of the "high degree of autonomy" of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The briefing described this view as a mistake, and Asked why Hong Kong has no remaining power.
