    No one knows why Kim Jong-un is out of sight, but he has been the most public of the three dynastic leaders [in North Korea]. He may also be facing personal challenges -- he does have a family -- a wife and at least one child. Perhaps there is illness or some other problem. Again, who knows?

    In the case of Mr. Jang [Jin-sung], the reality is he defected in 2004, 10 years ago, and it is nearly impossible for anyone having left a country [like North Korea] that has a news block-out to be able to have consistent and accurate and clear information for over a 10-year period of time. Defectors and exiles are also known generally in the scholarship to be colored by their experiences of the past. So they tend to read and interpret events in current times through the lens of the past and their own grievances.

    With [Beijing's decision to set electoral parameters], Hong Kong’s radicals were empowered, and the instability that occurred last weekend was almost inevitable. Beijing has been quick to blame the pan-democrats for the disorder, but it had the power and the opportunity to facilitate a good outcome.
