    I'm sure that lots of people in lots of places wish they had more than they do.

    New Zealanders do have a whole bunch of them, but I suspect that many New Zealanders really don't sufficiently appreciate them.

    Media bias? I read everything I can and form an opinion, then read something else, which might make me change my opinion, ad infinitum (but not yet ad nauseum)

    It's often a matter of reading between the lines - and sometimes a matter of trying to figure out where those lines are. . .
    Yup - read between the lines and you were ready to insinuate I was from China?

    Read between the lines, GTM 3442 - much of NZ was built on the back of innocent Maoris whose land was forcefully taken away, and when they protested, were slaughtered.

    So before you cast the first stone at any country, recognize first (after reading between the lines) which nation(s) is/are the worse at trampling over human rights.

    Always interesting to see where the lines lead, and where they intersect.

    The BBC gave this ex-British Consulate HK trade officer extensive coverage - poor chap was detained and tortured by the Chinese to extract confessions from him of his support of the protestors etc etc.

    Oops!

    Turned out he was detained for visiting a prostitution den in China not once but three times.

    As expected, zero coverage from the BBC about him being detained for said illegal activity. his apology to his family and children and being sacked from the Consulate.

    Illustrating Western bias on a GRAND scale.

    If you can handle raw footage of violence, watch this.

    For those who are genuinely interested in understanding why American opinion and influence are not welcomed in other countries.

    This is the way for Hong Kong people to show their stance - not beating up, injuring, burning and killing opponents who do not agree with their views.
