Why does Beijing need to clamp down on HK’s elections? Because too many pro-democracy candidates were winning. “The outcomes have been unsatisfactory,” Regina Ip told me. “The wrong people have been elected.” W/ @KeithBradsher⁩ ⁦@ChuBailianghttps://t.co/EuKxbC4Sql

Yes, this is a long thread. But thought you should know the details, so they are not lost to history. And by the way, this whole IG investigation took place after @PekingMike @KeithBradsher @suilee did this story in 2019, discussing many of these issues. https://t.co/fsMdwZsPMp

Last year China's government dropped a security law on Hong Kong that led to the jailing of much of the city's political opposition. Now it's going further, announcing plans to revamp the city's electoral system so only loyalists win office https://t.co/CR90NyXPvO

"The East is rising and the West is declining," says Xi Jinping. But he also warns that for now "the West is strong and the East is weak." How China's leader is trying to balance swagger and caution in a changing world. https://t.co/bKpqtqLgMT

Must-read on Chinese politics by @ChuBailiang. “The biggest source of chaos in the present-day world is the United States,” Mr. Xi told a domestic audience. https://t.co/ei9wHXMq44

Salespeople in China even pretend to be like the children of elderly citizens as they trick them into putting all their savings into fraudulent retirement home schemes: a powerful story. @jotted, @caocli and @_coralmore https://t.co/YxscX0SQya

The auto industry no longer has high barriers to entry: China's 14 years of heavy investments in electric car components mean that startups like Nio can quickly begin buying parts and assembling cars. https://t.co/fxgefydzkp

Pro-government scholar revamping what Hong Kong children learn in liberal studies classes: “They need to know that, after 1997, Hong Kong is part of China. They only need to know about that. We don’t want them to analyze anything out of that." by @vwang3 https://t.co/3UvacymLJa

The planned overhaul reinforces the Communist Party’s resolve to quash the few vestiges of political dissent after the antigovernment protests that roiled the Hong Kong in 2019. @KeithBradsher @vwang3 @austinramzy https://t.co/P8z6puq1gG

Beijing is moving to make Hong Kong’s political system ever more like its own, where only staunch loyalists can even dream of holding office. On forthcoming “patriotism” requirements, w @KeithBradsher @austinramzy: https://t.co/TA6gL3po0R

China is drafting plans to vet candidates for all elective offices in Hong Kong, including the committee that chooses the chief executive. Anyone deemed “unpatriotic” (critical of Beijing) will likely be investigated and barred from running. https://t.co/LbyIls755q

Particularly memorable in "Land of Big Numbers", the new collection of short stories by @tepingchen, is the narrative of a new fruit with magical effects on emotions and human interactions. The shadows of commercialization and Chinese politics are expressed in an understated way.

“Land of Big Numbers” by @tepingchen is the best fiction I have read in years. The fusion of contemporary China, beautiful turns of phrase and magical realism worthy of Gabriel García Márquez is extraordinary. A must-read.
