Not only is this disgusting, it is to be expected. The interest of capital and money will far outweigh human rights under the current system. I would like to stress this: Democratization of state is worth nothing if the workplace is not also democratized. If my livelihood depends on Job A and practicing my freedom of speech will cause me to lose Job A, I will not practice my freedom of speech and my freedom of speech is thereby suppressed and violated.
On the bright side, the American community is united in backing the people who are being silenced. Adam Silver stood up for Daryl Morey and the gaming community as a whole supports Blitzchung. Also I'm not sure how hard I can bash China on here without getting hit with a ban hammer but fuck China and fuck Winnie the Pooh.
