A lot of those issues are out of our control. Boycotting or hating on a company will only stop the brand from selling in that country, the Communism will still exist. It changes nothing in our world. Has Hong Kong been set free due to the back lash from Blizzards banning of Blitzchung? Reality is people need to blame something to justify bad actions, that's always the case. In this case, Blizzard was an easy target and so are corporations who don't have much of a choice aside from lose a crap ton of money and shares. You wouldn't half your income to help the protesters, no one is expected to, and that's the reality of it. Like a murder, someone or something needs to be blamed. Its something I have grown and seen past.
It's their authoritarianism, not communism, that's the issue.
And the government caved to one of the biggest demands from the protesters. That Hong Kong citizens would not get extradited to China or Taiwan.
Though that's more of a separate concern.
It's mainly how it will affect us. For example, if Steam doesn't let us play a video game, because China doesn't want us to.
My income? You mean my means to pay rent and live?
I can assure you that none of the NBA executives were at a risk of not affording rent.
We're talking about millions and millions of excess money, upon the already obscene amount of excess money they have from western markets.
Would I settle for just being a multi millionaire/(billionaire?) and tell China to fuck off?
Yes. And that's why I would never make it that high up in a gigantic multinational corporation. Those people will let the world burn for the right price.
That's how they got there.
