Thanks China! You proved what a lie Corporate Activism really is...for that I'm grateful...

Corporate Activism

Corporate activism is a public stance taken by a major company to positively impact social change or legislation. In some situations the activism might be driven by a desire for a company to reach a specific audience or demographic who purchase their products. In other situations the owners and leadership within a company may use their personal social influence to support a particular cause

It's kinda weird.

China has done us all a favor.  They've either killed, severely limited and/or humiliated the concept of Corporate Activism worldwide.

The funny thing is that from my chair only one entity has successfully stuck up the middle finger to the Chinese (South Park) but I have no idea on how or even if that will affect their bottom line.

Blizzard taken down.

NBA throat stomped.

Apple in the corner whimpering like a battered dog.

Others like Google, GM, Ford, Boeing, AirBus, Sikorsky, Dell, Nike (the list goes on) are hoping and praying to the Almighty God that no one notices them and that no one demands them to take a stand.

Speaking of which.

We have the reality of Corporate Activism.

It isn't about pushing social issues.  It's about making money and virtue signaling.

Money is the real mover.  If Hong Kong was richer than China or even a bigger potential market then I would expect them same corporations to be lobbying Congress to alert the 25th ID, 1MARDIV and probably a few more to secure the place.  If it was lucrative enough we'd probably add that to the list of places we'd spend 100 years occupying.

General Butler was right.
"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."
The problem for Hong Kong protesters?

They're not worth more than the Chinese market.  So they will be left out on a limb.

Repeating myself but the Chinese did us a favor.  They exposed Corporate Activism for the lie that it truly is...for that I'm grateful.
