A huge victory for people power in Hong Kong, but with the passage of the law only suspended, not cancelled, there is still a risk the Hong Kong authorities will force through legislation clearly lacking in democratic support.

The consent of the governed is a vital principle of liberal democracy. The CPC has no understanding of the concept.  Also by creating such a dichotomy between themselves and ordinary Hong Kongers the CPC is driving and creating the separatist/independence rhetoric as that is the only way to oppose imposition of unwanted laws.  If the CPC insists it is our way or the highway, don't be surprised by the growth in the number of highwaymen.

I suspect that they do. They have no interest in it.
