Cage dogs of Hong Kong

2012/01/26 Labels:

The Dailymail did a story on Hong Kong's cage people - a group of people whom very existence has been ignored or neglected by the HK government.    An estimate of about 100,000 people in HK who are forced to live under appalling conditions like this - in a city where the GDP per capita (2011) stays around $46,000 USD and a budget surplus of HK $60 billion.  This is also a what you call the "freest economy" in the world according the Heritage Foundation, where the little invisible hand apparently is too busy milking the cash cow for all its worth and indifferent about the people in the bottom.   This is a fucking shame.
The mail rightfully calls these people "dogs" as they're indeed living in dog-like conditions.    A lucky dog somewhere in the world could easily live a life far comfortable compared to these people, whom human spirits and dignity are all deprived.    While the HK officials are busy congratulating themselves for another year of the freest economy title, they should take a good look at another gold prize - one of the highest in the Gini coefficient scores in the whole world.
Here I leave a quote from Donald Tsang: “The life expectancy in Hong Kong is among the highest in the world … you can come to only one conclusion: we have the most environmentally friendly place for people, for executives, for Hong Kong people to live.”
If I have to live long in places like this, I would rather put a bullet through my head.

Yes this is a prison cell in Sweden.   Lets travel to that country and rob someone.
