Universal Suffrage in Hong Kong

I have been grappling with the idea of universal suffrage in Hong Kong but hitherto cannot see any discernible benefits from it. Thus far, without universal suffrage, Hong Kong is still by far the free-est place I've ever lived in, I can speak freely about what I think, I feel safe when I leave my house, I can setup a business from scratch with little to no assistance and I can enjoy a multi-cultural and multi-religious environment free of discrimination.

What will universal suffrage bring? America, for instance, has universal suffrage but it is one of the most unsafe places to live in, where racism is rife and you cannot even walk down the street drinking a beer…..

Have I missed out on something?
