Don't bother learning to read Chinese. Basically, a sycophantic commentary on the recent remark by the government in Beijing: "only patriots are fit to rule Hong Kong". The sad part is it was published in one of China's most liberal and socially conscious newspapers.

And I quote: "Patriotism, after Piety, is my least favourite virtue."

My gratitude to anyone who can spot for me the author of the quote, which sounds about right here.
