    My current understanding of your stance is that you believe there is only one possible outcome to come from any act of censorship, and thus nobody should attempt to exercise any form of censorship.

    Is my current understanding of your stance correct or not? If my interpretation is faulty I'd appreciate if you could clarify on any points that I have misinterpreted.
    I'm saying that if we, the people, hand over control of speech and the narrative to corporations it is only a matter of time before the government start pulling the strings in the background because they are in each others pockets. I'm saying that the price for silencing flat earthers and anti-vaxxers is handing over control of our speech to the government which is where China is at.

    From what I remember about the Blitzchung thing, I don't see how this is the same kind of thing.

    Fox News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and we will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court," the media company said in its response.
    Equally outrageously hilarious as sad

    are they really threatening to boycott, or is their government telling them to say/act out on this statement.

    Bobby has never said that. Because it would be business wise absolutely stupid.

    Also no business big or small is going to look at a country with more potential customers than North America and Europe combined and go "nope not going to get more money.".

    Any business that says it does has likely been booted out of China or out muscled. Those that say they won't are lying to you.

    First rule of business is make money
    Second rule of business is to make more money
    Third rule of business is to monopolise your market.

    That's capitalism. It is insidious and needs to be contained. But to expect any business from the mega corps to the market stall to say no to huge money is to expect to be able to breathe unaided in space.

    his words is that he should take more money from gamers since they have no self control or something similar
    Bobby actually have a goldmine of quotes but they are all old, since his PR team is smart enough to tell him to shut the fuck up since over 10 years now, but his early interviews when he was just fresh CEO show how much he hates video games, from the lovely quote of denying his own grandchildren to play video games, to remove fun from gaming industry, to of course twice firing ~10% of entire company staff in record breaking years of profit to not reduce his bonus even 10%
    Bobby hates video games, he is in that business for money and done, he will abuse anything to get more money (check lot of studies about gambling in video games, like OW boxes)

    Also, The CCP is so damn sensitive to any criticism it almost makes it impossible not to talk shit for fun. Go into a Chinese server on Rust and say "Taiwan #1" and see the absolute shitstorm that ensues in voice chat.
    Eh. Same happens if you mentioned Trump or Biden.

    I hope the dude doesn’t bend the knee to his team or Blizz. Give the CCP all the crap it deserves and continually remind people their hypocrisy for tolerating its existence while they try propagate western humanitarian views.
