Trying to make sense of a weird world - and maybe make it a little better

Another unanswerable poll question from the South China Morning Post: Do you believe some Hongkongers might resort to violence to fight for universal suffrage?
Do I believe a few hotheaded demonstrators might scuffle with police at a protest march? Almost certainly - which is probably what the 72& who answered "Yes" have in mind. Do I believe we're going to see pitched mass battles in the street and suicide bombings? No way. If you're going to ask a question like that, define what you mean by "violence" first.
