China has recently been trying to exert their power on Hong Kong; however, a growing number of people in this region are attempting to resist China's authoritarian communist ideals in order to protect their current system of government which largely runs on a platform of democracy and capitalism. 

Over the past few weeks these protests- which are done to protect Hong Kong's freedom and sovereignty- have turned increasingly violent. The Hong Kong police, under orders from the Communist Party of China, have abused their powers and often use excessive force on the largely peaceful Hong Kong protesters. The events that unfold over the course of the next few weeks can have significant consequences on the people of Hong Kong since it may determine whether democracy remains or if the oppressive authoritarian Chinese system of government prevails.  

Unfortunately, the free world has remained eerily quiet on this issue, despite the increasing intensity and the continued occurrence of these pro-democracy protester. As the most powerful democracy in the world the United States has a moral and political responsibility to spread democracy, as well as to protect existing and aspiring democracies across the globe. 

The United States of America should announce their support for the the Hong Kong protesters and their efforts to have Hong Kong remain a sovereign democratically run region; furthermore, the U.S. government should also encourage all other democratic nations to join them in support of this movement. 

Ignoring the events unfolding in Hong Kong can have serious negative consequences for the future of democracy in this region of Asia. The unrestrained spread of Chinese communist values, as well as their growing presence in areas outside of mainland China, is means for alarm. China may soon begin to impose their harsh and undemocratic laws on people in neighboring regions if the United State and other free countries continue to avoid addressing Chinese aggression. Ignoring this spread of Chinese imposition can lead to the destabilization of the Asian region, and potentially the oppression and suffering of millions of people.
