    [–] Google pulls Hong Kong protestor game from store Loccit 1 points ago in news

    The game company should change all the references to hong kong in the game to hang kang and re-release it. I am not big on freedom of speech, but for google to say "themes of protest are not appropriate to be explored" is some wild type censorship.

    [–] Google pulls Hong Kong protestor game from store Loccit -6 points ago in news

    So making a game about protests is ridiculous and that's where we draw the line. But running fake political advertisements, ads for racist, misogynist content, etc. is a-okay? There are plenty survival games based on national natural disasters and even more games, based on realistic conflict. including ethnic cleansing, child soldiers, etc. The purpose of all which is to "capitalize on sensitive events". Shouldn't google be removing those games as well?

    The purpose of removing said game is clearly to preemptively appease China.

    [–] China slams Apple's decision to allow police tracking app for Hong Kong protesters Loccit 0 points ago in worldnews

    I think the colony comments mostly come from Hong Kong, which are with respect to UK's rule in the 80s, 90s rather than republic of China.

    As with regards to Tibet, I share their sentiment, Tibet may have been far from a great place to live. But what Chinese government has done to Tibet during the cultural revolution and in the last decade is severely horrid.

    I mean Chinese Communist took over since 1949, it has been so long ago it is somewhat useless to compare directly the freedoms back then and now as back then freedoms were less extant all over the world. Further Chinese communist party is definitely more atrocious today than republic of China was in its day compared to their peers. And further China is completely atrocious in absolute sense, engaging in borderline ethnic cleansing, concentration camps, mass murder, torture, police state controlling what you think and what you say.

    Don't overestimate it, just because Apple is marginally better than other mass tech companies, doesn't mean that in absolute sense they are decent with regards to privacy. Quite frankly it just shows how utterly bottom of the barrel we are with regards to privacy and Apple is just slightly doing better. Do you forget that this is the company that just recently removed Taiwan flag emoji from their devices? And it still allows google and facebook to listen on your phone mic and collect data.

    It's a balancing game, the more refugees he lets in, the more people he removes from the royal family. Chill dude.

    EDIT: this was sarcastic comment people.

    [–] Outrage in Hong Kong as heavily pregnant teen, 19, who was 'just walking in a mall' is arrested Loccit 0 points ago in worldnews

    It baffles me why this sub is not banned, it is basically hate speech 24/7

    Ouh, right, reddit is also sucking China's dong.

    I think most of them are indoctrinated from childhood. There are quite a few Chinese people in my university, whenever the talk turns about Taiwan they fanatically push the state's talking points and if you dare disagree with them they get massively offended. And this goes pretty much for all of them.

    [–] Husband of US woman granted diplomatic immunity 'not registered diplomat' Loccit 6 points ago in ukpolitics

    Thank god that ADHD hacker kid was not extradited, he would certainly have met his death in US prisons. Look at what they did to Aaron Swartz. The guy released academic journal articles, that normally are behind a paywall (even though research and those articles are funded by US taxpayer's money), the prosecutors charged him with 50 years in prison and 1 million fine and bullied him to the extent that the poor soul committed suicide.

    What do you think about Warren's rise in the polls? By the most recent one she is ahead of Biden while Bernie is steady at ~15%. Do you think Bernie can overtake Warren and how?

    Fucking mod's also happily sucking China's dick! Why cannot I say that reddit is a sold out whore as well? It is okay to run a far right sub agitating misogyny, racism and homophobia, like /r/The_Donald . But say one negative thing about reddit and it gets removed?

    [–] Jeremy Corbyn: Football is part of our lives, our community and it's the place where people go to socialise and enjoy each other's company. Let's take the beautiful game away from the billionaires and hand it to the fans instead. Loccit 12 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago) in ukpolitics

    Ajax is fan owned, so is Bayern Munich and nearly all clubs in Bundasliga. I think fan based ownership can work without a problem. And, actually, quite the opposite to billionaire for profit ownership fan ownership is better incentivized to spend money where it matters.

    [–] Tonnes of British-grown fruit wasted over shortages of EU workers amid no deal Brexit fears Loccit 2 points ago in ukpolitics

    Well, the products are already uncompetitive with imports, hence the agricultural subsidies. What this does, is makes them even more expensive. The outcome of which will be that either the government will need to increase the agricultural subsidies even more or the products will become more expensive. Another option could be, which will not gonna happen, is to open agri sector to free trade. All the farmers then would go out of business, but the product prices for general public would fall even more than the loss faced by farmers. This is actually what economic theory prescribes with a crucial point that the the wealth created from free trade should be taxed and redistributed to farmers to equate their loses. This way the farmers do not lose and there is still extra wealth created from free trade. This is of course not taking into account the notion that farmers may themselves have some cultural value and then free trade may not make sense. That is the reasoning argued by European commission and that's why we have agri subsidies.

    [–] Revealed: global video games giants avoiding millions in UK tax Loccit 1 points ago in ukpolitics

    Because politicians have poor comprehension of economics. Economic theory clearly shows that subsidies lead to a worse outcome for everyone. This talks about it on a very superficial level, but essentially subsidies make the markets less efficient. Lower taxes is a form of subsidy.
