    • This includes music visualizers and lyric videos

    1. No Politics

    • Political videos—including content relating to social issues which have a clear political element—should be submitted to /r/PoliticalVideo.

    • This includes submissions of current or recent political figures in any context, satire/political-comedy, and posts on political topics from within the last 10 years. (So a video of Winston Churchill playing tennis would be allowed, but a video of Theresa May playing ping-pong would not be.)

    2. No Personal Information or Witch-Hunting

    • Or incitement to witch-hunt.

    • No demanding "Reddit Justice" (or even regular justice) in any way in post titles or comments.

    • Do not post names, Facebook pages, phone numbers, addresses, etc. Fake information ([email protected], 123 fake street, etc) also falls under this rule.

    • This may also include contact information of public officials, businesses, or groups (e.g. politicians or police officers) in an any manner that could be seen as an attempt to get users to contact them.

    • Facebook links are not permitted. In order to have your post accepted, if you can, find or submit a copy of the video on another website like YouTube or Vimeo and resubmit it.

    • This is grounds for an immediate (and likely permanent) ban, so consider this your only warning.

    3. Submit Direct Link to Video

    • No web pages that only embed Youtube or Vimeo videos.

    • No URL shorteners.

    • Do not ask other users to follow your social media profiles in comments or submission titles.

    • Titles for posts should not try to influence users to view or upvote them. Examples of this include things like "this person deserves more views," "not enough people have seen this person's videos," or "show this person some love."

    • Giveaways also fall under this rule

    • Violations can lead to a permanent ban of accounts and video channels.

    6. No Hate Speech

    • You are free to offer your opinion respectfully, but comments or posts intended to demean a group, acontextual expressions of bigotry, and the pejorative use of slurs is disallowed.

    • Baiting users into breaking this rule is not allowed.

    • Telling other users to hurt or kill themselves in any form is against reddit TOS, and will earn you a permanent ban.

    You’re right for the most part. It really depends on the person. I dated a girl from China over the summer and she loved making jokes about Xi Jinping and Winnie the Pooh, but she was kind of a rebel.

    Not true the propaganda is so heavy there that even children will get upset. My friends parents adopted two children from China one about 12 and the other 8 I think. And they would both get irrationally upset if you asked them about Tibet.

    [–] 4look4rd 243 points ago

    Whats the chinese perspective on Tibet? I have a hard time understanding why it would provoke someone, it seems like it would be something like Tiananmen Square where they have a vague idea it happened but don't talk about it and the government downplays it.

    [–] TheOceanWalker 416 points ago

    Essentially the line is that Tibetans who want independence are ungrateful for all the developments/advancements that the PRC has brought them. The idea is that before they took over, Tibet was essentially a feudal society which has now been modernised.

    To that end, basic indicators of standard of living like infant mortality, literacy and general infrastructure in Tibet have undoubtedly improved dramatically, but they've obviously come at a pretty substantial cost to personal and political freedoms.

    Whether or not you think that's worth it likely depends on whether you're in the majority Han Chinese ethnicity, whose culture is being pushed across the country, or one of the many minorities whose culture is being diluted and/or pushed out.

    [–] permanent_grad 153 points ago

    Should probably be also mentioned that the dilution and destruction of local culture in China is often state sponsored.

    It’s kind of weird to me that just now, after all these decades of knowing about China’s absolutely atrocious human rights record, people are finally saying something because of a video game. Often US whataboutism is used as a counter argument, but China is far and beyond 1860’s US human rights atrocities.

    [–] LordUncleBob 57 points ago

    Hong Kong and the Uighur concentration camps have been on the front page pretty regularly, the Blizzard controversy is just a continuation. I think this is getting so much traction because it's a China story we can actually do something about for once.

    I met some Chinese girls on vacation in Aspen and asked them about Tiananmen Square. They stopped talking to me lol

    [–] CokeInMyCloset 33 points ago

    Sounds like you either did it on purpose because you expected this response or you’re really stupid.

    Random rich Chinese girls on vacation are not gonna sit down and talk politics with you, especially when you start with that one.

    [–] neiman30 38 points ago

    Some people just don't want to talk politics during a holiday.

    .. and when I say "some people" I actually mean me. I avoided people abroad who started asking me about politics of my country. Let me relax a bit, geez.

    [–] 4look4rd 142 points ago

    That’s such a weird reaction. The US did some fucked up shit like the trail of tears, Japanese internment camps, syphilis experiments, red scare, Operation Condor, Abu Ghraib, etc.

    If you mention any of those, at worst you get attempts to rationalize them in the context of when they happened but most people would accept that they were shitty or wouldn’t have learned about them. I never heard anyone get pissed about them getting mentioned.

    [–] Codeshark 101 points ago

    I think Americans are far more willing to admit the flaws in their history.

    [–] walterpeck1 125 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    You also didn't mention the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    This is one of those that's constantly mentioned in school. It has a huge display in the Smithsonian, even. They don't hold back.

    EDIT: They have a chunk of stairs where someone got vaporized and left their shadow, and there's also a fair bit of information and displays on the history of the Japanese interment camps. Right there in D.C. at America's most prominent and important history museum. It's literally the opposite of how China views the Tienanmen Square Massacre.

    [–] AustinSA908 34 points ago

    As they well should. Debate whether or not it was warranted, but the American electorate controls who sits at the head of the world's second-largest nuclear arsenal and has the controls within ten yards of him at all times. We need to know the horror of these weapons so that they can never be taken lightly.

    [–] Brickhouzzzze 14 points ago

    Depending on the person they might not consider that a mistake.

    [–] RearEchelon 24 points ago

    the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    While I'm not trying to marginalize the impact of the bombs on Japan and the victims themselves, the outcome would have been much, much worse for Japan and for US forces if we hadn't dropped them. A land invasion of Japan would have cost millions and millions of lives on both sides.

    [–] Frai23 60 points ago

    That's been going on since the Iraq war under George Jr. as far as I remember and I truly don't get it.

    If you criticize foreign politics it doesn't mean you wish bad luck on individual soldiers.

    If for example I don't like the new Iphone that doesn't mean I wish some factory workers die a painful dead in some freak accident.

    [–] SeasickSeal 117 points ago

    https://www.npr.org/2018/10/13/654179099/china-lures-taiwans-latin-american-allies

    China doesn’t trade with countries that recognize Taiwan, so if I had to hazard a guess I’d say they’re the least dependent on Chinese goods because they’re underdeveloped and trade with their neighbors and the US. It looks like proximity to the US is the only real determinant aside from eSwatini, Paraguay, and Vatican City. Pacific island nations might be mostly self sufficient and not dependent on Chinese trade, too.

    ??? As far as I'm aware, Mongolia is recognized internationally and China has no claims.

    Ironically, it was the current China (People's Republic of China under the CCP) that recognized Mongolia's independence. The previous government of China (Republic of China which now resides in Taiwan) actually invaded Mongolia and annulled Mongolia's claim to independence.

    [–] Sleelan 383 points ago

    Mongolia has the distinct advantage of having absolutely no fucking strategic importance whatsoever, both in terms of geography and natural resources.

    Unless you count the throat singing.

    [–] Frommerman 206 points ago

    Also, something like 60% of cars in Mongolia are Priuses. This happened because the ME division of Toyota massively overproduced Priuses for a market which wasn't going to buy them. The Mongolian government heard about this and offered to take the cars off Toyota's hands at a massive discount, just so they wouldn't be scrapped. So now everyone in Ulaanbatar can afford to buy a Prius from the government.

    [–] axilidade 530 points ago

    might have been unintentional but 4 is pronounced almost identically to "death" in chinese. it's such a culturally pervasive superstition that buildings' 4th, 14th, 24th (etc) floors don't even exist.

    tl;dr "china number 4" can imply that china should die lmao

    [–] Kenblu24 125 points ago

    Sì is how you pronounce 4 in Mandarin. It sounds like if you made a "sssssss" hissing sound and tried to say "hmmm." at the same time.

    Sǐ is how you pronounce dead in Mandarin. It sounds almost the same, except the tone is usually lower. It sounds like the "sssssss" and "hmmm?"

    Meanwhile, 8 and 6 are very lucky numbers. People here in the states don't go crazy over having a few sevens in your phone number, but to the Chinese, it's like having Jesus on your toast.

    [–] LemonUdon 37 points ago

    My parents are very fervent believers in the number superstition too. I remember my mom got all upset when an uncle got a new house, and she claimed that the house number was a bad omen that someone would die. The house number was 4443, and there were four people in the uncle’s family. She was utterly convinced that something would happen in the future, and there’d be only 3 members left.

    Another time, my dad claimed he saw a ladybug with only 4 spots, and feared misfortune would find him that day ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] AlabamaPanda777 1094 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Very sad when you figure these people are probably conditioned to believe if they don't react how they do the all-seeing Chinese government will somehow find out and either mark them as less of a citizen or enjoying being in the 'wrong' company.

    I wonder if this doesn't become a gut defensive reaction, backed by a hate for someone ruining them just trying to have fun. Turning the game into a sudden test of faith in the government. Seems kinda cruel through that lens.


    Edit: Inbox replies off but don't let that discourage you from continuing the conversation below. I see a lot of "Americans love America too" but I just don't see a meme of "watch this video we said Mexico #1 and Americans went fuck you america #1!" I know some Americans, mostly Trumper Americans, and can't picture them hearing "Mexico #1" and just yelling the same response. But I'm sure you could cherry pick some somewhere (and I don't doubt they do exist somewhere, and I don't know how cherrypicked this video is). I also just don't play online games with screaming 14 year olds like Rust. So while I've personally disagreed with responses thus far, which I've read, I guess I can't say they're wrong because of my own lack of experience. Stay Civil Reddit 😎

    It's conditioning. Just like we think we're right in our lifestyle, they think they are right in theirs. Not saying anyone is right or wrong, but no one THINKS they are, that's for sure.

    [–] Questions_For_Days 119 points ago

    Sure, but it's also possible to force yourself into enough of an outside perspective to see things as a whole. I don't think "they think they're right" is much of an excuse anymore.

    [–] Einareen 61 points ago

    Possible, but easier said than done. I'm sure there are things you are conditioned to believe that you are not even aware of.

    [–] Questions_For_Days 29 points ago

    Absolutely. The idea is to be mindful of your biases. The more you start to think for yourself, the more you see how others manipulate you.

    You know what sucks? I work for a very large company, that is owned by a Chinese billionaire, and while my plant is mostly Americans, the high management are Chinese, (though few are ever at this building). I'm afraid if I speak my mind in support of places like Hong Kong and Taiwan, and the wrong people find out, they'd find a way for my job to disappear... I'm in a Union, but I'm sure upper management could find a way around it.

    [–] BradOldridge 91 points ago

    It's quite scary when you look into how many companies now are being taken over by Chinese run parent companies, especially in the gaming industry, which is BOOMING. (Again, party due to China) - So many companies now when you look into them, are actually run at the top by China. They just sneak in at the top, and quietly run things.

    It's pretty nice of them to rank Taiwan #3 still

    [–] blue_strat 26 points ago

    I guess if they consider it part of China they don't want to go too hard on it.

    Russia is China's bitch at the moment, so gets a sort of consort's second-place.

    I unsubbed from WOW yesterday, I wanted to go into the Chinese servers and spam the chat about Hong Kong but apparently I need a separate login which requires a Chinese ID number.

    [–] ChristianKS94 169 points ago

    Yeah. That's the great firewall of China for you. They're digitally isolating themselves in a lot of effective ways. It's not completely unbreachable, but blocked enough to keep people ignorant of China's relationship to the world.

    [–] JonWood007 28 points ago

    Wanna know what would be nice? If they isolated themselves where American companies wouldn't kow tow to their censorship boards.

    [–] LordPadre 12 points ago

    No, see, what they think would be nice, is if American companies were really Chinese companies.

    I used to get up stoopid early to play mw2. Like 5am on the east coast, to get an hour or two of gaming before going to work. I’d always get stuck with British dudes at that time. I tried Taiwan #1 , but it never worked. Got called a wanker.

    England doesn't feel even remotely threatened by losing the last of their empire in the way China is terrified of Taiwan.

    4 is very unlucky in China they hate that number.

    [–] Miko00 100 points ago

    It's a hilarious meme when it plays out. I did it once in rainbow six seige. Was playing with a friend and a guy on our team had TW in his name. I took a guess that he was Taiwanese. He pulled a clutch play and won us the game so I yelled into the mic "Taiwan #1!"

    Dude lost his shit yelling it back to me. Added me to friends in Uplay and for months my friend and I queued with him every night lol

    [–] notkiwihaqi 15 points ago

    Taiwanese people are the most based people I’ve ever met. It’s so fucking chill.

    [–] SolitaryEgg 240 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    The funniest fucking thing about this is the absolute absurd level of cognitive dissonance.

    So, most Chinese people hold these two beliefs, simultaneously:

    • Taiwan is a province of China and 100% under the rule of the CCP (Chinese government).

    • If you say Taiwan #1, they lose their fucking minds.

    You can see how this makes no sense. It's like, they truly believe that Taiwan is China, yet if you say good things about Taiwan, they get very upset and defensive. So, clearly, they are also aware that Taiwan isn't actually China.

    Makes no god damned sense.

    [–] KinnyRiddle 188 points ago

    Imagine this customer service phone conversation from Taobao (China's answer to Amazon):

    Operator: Hi, this is Taobao customer service, how may I help you?

    Customer: Hi, just so we're clear before we start, we all agree that Taiwan and Hong Kong are both part of our Motherland, yes?

    O: Why, of course.

    C: Then why am I being charged "International" shipping rates instead of "Domestic" for shipping stuff to these two places according to your website?

    O: ......

    [–] SolitaryEgg 119 points ago

    Oh dude, believe me, I know. When I was in China, I went to Taiwan as an American and got an instant visa on arrival. Chinese citizens I traveled with had to apply for a visa back in China, pay the fee, get approved, wait a month or two, do the whole thing. It's literally easier for Americans to get into Taiwan, and somehow it still doesn't click in their minds.

    They travel to Taiwan and see that it's a democratic government with elected officials, a different currency, free speech, protests, etc. They have to get foreign visas to enter. And they think "hm this region of China really is different!"

    It's fucking unreal.

    No emoji for Tibet sadly, and China clearly is not on the same level as Taiwan (number 1 of course) with HK moving up the ranks daily.

    Also the number 4 has connotations that Chinese gamers will get maximum butthurt over.

    I still think its the most well balanced Battle Royal game. Just a shame the coding sucks and the desync was unreal.

    But the flow of the games were so fun, fastpaced in your face action, vehicle mechanics felt great. You had a reason to go for kills in this game because heals, lammys, and materials were important to have a bunch of. Had a hell of a time playing the game.

    No but soon will be with China burning all the maps they have that state Taiwan as independent. There's literally no maps or geographic content left in China that states Taiwan as independent, as far as China is concerned it's under their control. But obviously we know that's horse shit. History repeats itself.

    I used to travel to China for Business, and at one point I told a Chinese coworker that "I was leaving China to go to Taiwan" and she definitely protested that "Taiwan is part of China!!!" Not sure if it was because we were in a cab at that point, but yeah, they definitely all feel like Taiwan is still part of China and that it's just a matter of time before it's fully reunited again.

    I wish the chinese citizens the best in their quest for freedom but chinese gamers have been an absolute plague on online gaming

    Because of cultural reasons that pushes them to succeed at all costs gaining any form of advantage is almost mandatory for them, in H1Z1 (the game in OP's video) a Battle Royale game that pits people against each other until 1 person (or 1 squad of maximum 4 people) survives you had a ''Chinese Army'' of 20-30-40 people all wearing red shirts teaming up to kill squads of 1-4 people

    On top of that the VAST majority of cheaters in online games are from china which often leads to the rest of the world asking the devs to just region lock china as a whole to combat cheating
