Psst! Something can’t be passed on! Pass it on!

From Evan Osnos’ New Yorker piece about “China’s dilemma”:

“Bloodshed in Hong Kong would shatter the prospects, however slim, of healing the rift with Taiwan, which Xi has declared ‘can’t be passed on for generations.'”

It seems harmless, but which is a witch of a word.

What can’t be passed on?

  • Bloodshed?
  • Prospects?
  • Healing?
  • Rift?
  • Or Taiwan?

I honestly don’t know. I’ll take your vote in the Comments box.
