Be Like Water: Hong Kong Protests
One of my favorite quotes is Bruce Lee’s, Be Like Water. A simple but powerful phrase.
This was the ethos of the protesters in the 2019-20 Hong Kong protests.
Be strong as ice, be fluid as water, gather like dew, scatter like mist.
The disadvantage of a protest lead by a few individuals is that knowledge and strategy are centralized. If you take down the leaders the entire movement collapses. A lesson the Hong Kong protesters learned through experience during the 2014 Umbrella Movement.
