Hell to you and your free speech!

It baffles me why a small software community needs to be politicized.
There’s no use to advocate any of your political views.
No one cares what you think, believe, and say, just shut up about it!

To be honest, I’m surprised a little software author can be such politicized ignoring the truth and investigation.
I have used notepad for many years, before I leave it, I have words for the author:
Don’t be the Frog In The Well. Respect the truth. Be honest and kindness.

It is shock to me when I find out notepad++ is supporting the riots. These riots can burn people alive if he has a different political opinion. The riots are taking away Hong Kong peoples’ freedoms and human rights.
National security law is common in the world. National security law in US is more strict than Hong Kong. Any American or European who stands up for US in the any place in the world and violates this law, can be arrested in US, even stop-over flight in US allies. The national security law in Hong Kong is protecting Hong Kong people from these riots.

As an American, I cherish and honor free speech as our founding fathers enshrined in the founding documents. As such, i will support Notepad++'s expression of support of Hong Kong.
I am puzzled why Beijing feels so threatened by the freedoms that were enjoyed in Hong Kong and why they have refused to abide by the conditions set forth in the transfer of HK from the British. It looks like the Beijing government cannot be trusted to live by covenants they agree to when they desire their goals.
So feel free to express your disagreement with any pro Hong Kong sentiment. You can always:
1 - ignore the comments and enjoy using Notepad++, or
2 - stop using Notepad++ and go some place where you agree and are not threatened by other’s views.

You are? I’m not.
(and that’s about all I’ll ever say about it)

Supporting free speech movement and what actually transpired there are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT things and should be clarified carefully.
Movements like Black Live Matters received worldwide respect because majority of the protests were peaceful. There were some looting but they’re either largely unreported by media or there were really that few/isolated instances.
What happened in Hong Kong were outright riots. Both caused by rioters/protestors and their local police dept (HKPF) with their questionable tactics. On one hand, public infrastructures were largely destroyed (e.g. pretty much everything you can take apart on a street were taken apart and threw at riot police), while Police sandwiched rioters and forced their hand to fight back (rather than disperse/scatter them). To think that N++ authors support these events makes me rethink how blindly the public is taking news at face value.
Just to outline what’s happening in Hong Kong, free speech is being suppressed, not by PRC, but by citizens with opposite political views themselves. I’ve seen people who seemingly support free speech (the Yellow faction) ganging up hitting, robbing people on the street, confiscating their phones if they were taking videos/pictures, and setting 1 person on fire after pouring gasoline with other onlookers cheering. The “free speech” being suppressed in Hong Kong includes, not being able to say I’ll kill/harm the president, not being able to destroy the legislative branch building (the place was ransacked, much worst than what happened in US Capitol building riot), not being able to tear down national flag and step on. We can still gather up and reasonably protests (with approval from HKPF), we still have unrestricted access to ALL social media.
It is not to say that nothing is being suppressed in Hong Kong, I’m just saying it’s not worth the cause if ordinary citizens’ lives are severely affected. There are 7 million people in Hong Kong, with about a few thousand rioters in numerous instances. It is very unfair for these thousand rioters to be able to harm the rest of the population to the point where, mass transit had to be shut down because the stations were no longer deemed a safe place for citizens to use. We’re talking about a mass transit system used by 5.9 million out of 7 every single day. Free speech movement, yes, but at what cost?!
