When I work as a medical practitioner in previous administration, I need to deal with a lot of requests for sickness leave and I am very much willing to grant it to the public as long as the request is reasonable. When I start to work as a politician and endorsed President of Independent Hong Kong HKN, I start to think about the rationales behind the frequent requests of sickness leave among the locals.
The only reason to grant a sickness leave is because it results in decrease of functional status and you need some time to recover from it. Professional medical practitioners are very much willing to assist as long as it is a reasonable request but not with bad intention.
What I am starting to worry about is the deterioration of this situation because I find out that a significant reason behind this is lack of upward escalation in previous administration. Young people even work very hard still cannot obtain chance of upward escalation. Previous administration starts to protect those with inherited connection or vested interest holders but not connection built by people themselves. In west, people will be rewarded if they are capable and they can even be Head of the State if they are fit enough at a very young age. It seems that this is badly tolerated locally. You will find the recent chaotic situation unstoppable. TRUST ME IT IS THE SYSTEM FAILURE leading to all these happenings in previous HKSAR.
