@anna If we could refrain from jumping on slogans developed by the CIA instantly before learning the first thing about a situation that would be great.

Experts on Hong Kong please comment. (This implies if you're not an expert on Hong Kong maybe don't).

the academy awards had a problem where every fucking celebrity would use their acceptance speech to yammer about their pet cause and it got super wearisome to watch so they implemented a mic kill switch and made some rules, they didnt take the damn statues away, y'know?

tho honestly im more upset about them :cmonBrugzos: yoinking :cmonBrugzos: the prize money than telling him to cram it. he won the prize pool fair and square, no takey-baksies because blizz wants to get all goobergobble about politic's in video games

@anna I don't even use Bilzzard and I know next to nothing about Hong Kong but this sounds right to me. If means a socialist revolution in Hong Kong today, great. If it means to stop China because British Capitalism is better, um...

hot take version: there's a lot of great reasons to boycott blizzard but im not too gung ho on cancelling them for telling someone to not use their platform to regurgitate cia propaganda :blobcatsip:

y'all really putting the squeeze on me to defend state capitalism against the gamers god dammit

never forget bush did 9/11 and hong kong protestors are funded by the burgoeise afraid china is going to take their slaves, the cia, and fascists, so even if you dont like the chinese government, which, fair enough, maybe consider pretty much everything is fash horseshit before getting too wrapped up in a particular side

@auroraborealis @anna

to quote @taweret,

anti-consumerism is the victim blamer's version of anti-capitalism

@anna why is no one providing hard numbers. The straw ban is driving me nuts, no one that should be getting blamed is blamed, and as a result you just have millions of regular people going 'holy shit i am killing the planet through my starbucks straw' and then some company goes 'look at you, using metal straws. but is the world better? no. it's all for nothing'

@anna ..capitalism is all about buying libs to own the libs isn't it?

re: discussion of suicide in a capitalist dystopia 

discussion of suicide in a capitalist dystopia

gonna buy 10 copies of diablo immortal to own the libs

A billionaire can decide he wants a sports stadium where your home currently is and your local government will bend over backwards to lick his boots so now your home is gone but tell me again how you live in a "free" country.
