Kind of funny seeing Hollywood and apple two entities that pretend to like diverse thoughts and opinions kowtow to China on this issue. What a joke.

And this is exactly what soft censorship looks like. Makes you wonder if our media companies are operating under the same set of "guidelines".

If you want to know who controls you, look at who you are not allowed to criticize. ---Voltaire We live in a society. Islam is right about women and slavery. Blame the white guy. It is okay to be White. Wall Street is looking after the national interests.

Can you even type "China Sucks" on an Apple product? (I almost expect a "Clippy" equivalent to pop up and say "It looks like you're trying to desparage a foreign nation. Would you like to report yourself for re-education?")

Don't aggravate the slave empire that makes all our stuff. They may charge one penny apiece more and hurt our bottom line.
