It really is insidious, and I hope it starts getting called for what it is:

Corporate/Government Collusion, with the aim of circumventing the 1st amendment by technicality.

China banned Whinne the Pooh because Chinese were making memes with Pooh representing the Chinese president.

Didn't Apple succumb to Chinese demands for access to iPhones?

Apple on Sunday announced the removal of several virtual private network (VPN) services from its app store in China, according to Reuters.

The Chinese government has been pressuring the company to ban all VPNs — which allow users to bypass China's heavily regulated internet — that aren't approved by state regulators. Apple's compliance is being criticized by some as bolstering China's censorship efforts.

From Apple's perspective, the move is likely a gesture of good faith as it continues its efforts to maintain strong ties with China's government, which has heavily restricted the ability of western technology companies to compete.

This is not the first time Apple has complied with China's demands, which appear to contradict its stance in other markets. Earlier this month, the company announced plans to begin storing its Chinese users' data on servers run by a Chinese government-controlled company, The Australian reports. This could arguably give the government access to users' personal information. Meanwhile, CEO Tim Cook has taken a hard line against sharing user data with the US government.

Agenda 21 makes an appearance. I posted about that the other day to v/askvoat. Seemed like not a lot of folks know what it is.

[–] Shilly_Mc_Shillface 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Agenda 21 is a non-binding action plan of the United Nations with regard to sustainable development.[1] It is a product of the Earth Summit (UN Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels.

The "21" in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st Century. Although it is also the area code for Greater Rio de Janeiro, plus Teresópolis and Mangaratiba in the countryside. It has been affirmed and had a few modifications at subsequent UN conferences. Its aim is achieving global sustainable development. One major objective of the agenda 21 is that every local government should draw its own local agenda 21.

pretty reasonable comic but I don't get the climate change block, like how is that even a controversial idea, so absurd.

Corporate meddling in Government has made it a partisan issue.
