British writer Gideon Rachman says Russian President Vladimir Putin’s argument that “liberalism is an old idea” may be right, but anti-liberal ideas do not seem to pay off in return.

Both Russia and China pose a geopolitical and ideological challenge to Western liberalism, Rachman said, but both countries face public demonstrations that undermine their governments’ claims of stability, efficiency and public support.

In response to the popular demonstrations in Moscow and Hong Kong, the writer said that the governments of the two countries are invading Paranoia, which serves their allegations in accusing foreign enemies of coordinating the demonstrations.

Rachman observed differences between demonstrations in the two cities. The recent Moscow demonstrations were attended by about 50,000 people.

The authorities’ concessions to Moscow encouraged the liberals in June when they forced the regime to release anti-corruption journalist Ivan Golonov after he was jailed on trumped-up charges, the writer said.

Similarly in Hong Kong, Rachman noted that the government’s partial review of the deportation of wanted persons to China and its suspension may have strengthened the thorn of protesters and continued demonstrations.

The writer pointed out that one of the basic demands of the demonstrators in both Moscow and Hong Kong is the release of those arrested in previous demonstrations.
