Fuck the mainland government, actual Nazis of our generation. White power groups are fucking small-time. I stand with Hong Kong. Tell your own government so if you feel the same way. Not CW'd because it's your responsibility to know about and act on this problem.
@sir Aside from voicing our discontent, how can we "fight back" against China? China makes most things we buy and has their tendrils in a significant amount of media/game companies.
In Australia, China owns a bunch of farms, utility companies, has huge influence in Universities and with politicians.
@patrick @sir OK, so clothes, food and stuff are normally things you can buy without giving China money (though like I said, in Australia more and more of that is being bought out by China). But I do wonder about tech. I don't know if it's currently possible to buy computer hardware that doesn't have anything made in China.
@patrick I didn't mean that we should start with CPUs, I was just using it as an example of something that would be really hard to move (though after I posted that I looked into how many are actually in China ,and like you said, there aren't actually that many at this time).
There are some small companies like System76 that are putting together their own computers in America (System76 has their Thelio line), so that's a start for sure.
