China claims all of them.

HK is now just another part of the PRC.

Taiwan is basically its own separate nation.

In recent years unofficial 'ambassadors' have been forced out of HK (non-issuance of visas) due to refusal to accept Daddy Xi's one china principle (basically the same as one country two systems in HK). The current Taiwanese government are fiercely independent and the problems around the extradition of a murderer between HK and Taiwan sparked the big 2019 protests (Because the draft law left space for HK to legally send """"criminals"""" to the PRC (Of course the PRC has been kidnapping people from other countries for years)).

With its massive wealth inequalities, gangs of criminals working hand in hand with the police, corrupt tycoons monopolising wealth, sh*t cost of living, sh*t standard of life for normal people and reliance on exploitative labour migration..... You are absolutely correct.

Yes, there is nothing preventing you from earning more if you work more. Wealth inequity is not a bad thing (only to Communists).

People living in trailer parks in Alabama with their cousin wife struggling to pay for insulin claim the United States is the best country in the world. What’s your point?

The United States is the best country in the world, so they are correct.

At one point Hong Kong was the best example of Capitalism in the world, until China reneged on their promise to not interfere with their system.

I'd disagree with that statement currently.

Reminds me of the opening scene of The Newsroom. You should give it a watch, Noldor.

"A journal reviewer has said “Hong Kong” is a foreign name that should be amended to include its Mandarin romanisation “Xianggang,” raising concerns about academic freedom.

University of Edinburgh PhD student Andrew Yu tweeted that one of the four reviewers of an academic paper he submitted to a peer-reviewed journal said it would “not [be] appropriate to use only the foreign name: Hong Kong.” The unidentified reviewer suggested “Xianggang” should appear alongside its English name, which has been used for at least 180 years.

“One of the reviewers requests me to add Mandarin Pinyin and remove all colonialism-related wordings,” he wrote. “Perhaps he or she is from China? My answer to the requests is NO.”"
