Trump ban tiktok.
1. is it a right thing to do?
Of course damn not. I found all my way out of GFW, not wanna see US copy every policy from China.
2. is there any other options?
Seems not. It's an option of no options. The right thing to do is force China to open internet. Is this make sense to you?
3. what will be in the future?
If you look into the face of evil, it's going to look right back to you.

I took some further thinking of "the China phone". To a certain degree, it's pretty like a bug. You should not take it, when you're going somewhere you don't want others to know. You should cover it, when you're talking about something sensitive. But, at least it has one advantage. If cops in China ware asking you to hand over your phone, it will be pretty safe to hand it over.

My conclusion is:
* don't trust clipboard too much, it's not so safe some how.
* keep the permission of clipboard in browsers disabled.
* close some "untrusted software" when copying sensitive data, or even disconnect the internet.

* phone: android. one for China apps, one for globals. I gave up the security assumption of "the China phone". Not sure how the risk is to the global phone.

Regarding the security of clipboard. I searched some docs, to see how big the risk is to my desktop/laptop/phone.
* desktop: linux. run just limited software. The biggest risk here is the websites in the browsers. (clipboard access disabled by default in firefox and chrome)
* laptop: mac. run limited software. The biggest risk here is Wechat. Not sure if it's monitoring clipboard.

My guess is, until now, there should have some China policeman "help" their Hong Kong colleague. Next move of gov will be, more remote support, less natives. Because natives has risks.

香港目前为止应该有不少广东公安“支援”了。再下去会进一步加大异地支援比例,减少本地人手。

But that doesn't mean Hong Kong citizen should stop fighting, even for profile. The speciality of Hong Kong is, it between the west and the east, and connect them together. It will be impossible under the China gov.
I'm with HongKonger, although I don't think this works.

然而这不代表香港居民不应抗争。即便从利益角度也是如此。香港的特殊性在于中西方中间的一个纽带。如果纯在大陆治下是肯定无法做到这点。届时香港一样退化为一个小渔村。
然而如我上条推。我支持这个行为,但不认为这个行为有用。

What happened in Hong Kong here, is because their citizen doesn't trust China gov or HK gov. Gov says, I'll do you a favorite. Nobody buy it. Currently, citizen can't push gov back because they can't vote. Gov don't care if they looks good. They just want to stop people thinking "fight works", especially for mainland China citizen. So this should be long, and could damage Hong Kong's reputation and economy.

香港现状的起因是香港居民不相信大陆和特区政府。政府说,今天我要为你做一桩好事,居民如惊弓之鸟一样连忙摆手。当下这个局面,居民并不能以选票制衡政府,政府也并不在意形象,因此长期强势镇压已成定局。这会长期和强烈的损害香港的形象和经济。一个搞不好,香港会再次回到小渔村。
