(The Diplomat, By Mercy A. Kuo and Angelica O. Tang) Hong Kong and Taiwan’s strategic value to the U.S. lies in their democratic or semi-democratic systems, which stand in juxtaposition to China’s hardening authoritarianism. Citizens in both territories have strengthened their identities as “Taiwanese” or “Hong Kongers,” eschewing their identity as “Chinese.” Mainland pressure backfired, as many people in these two territories see their business elites getting rich, while their own salaries stagnate, housing prices become unaffordable, and media freedoms deteriorate.
