Things going great with China

The state of play: This isn't the first time Beijing has squeezed an apology out of American business.

Marriott apologized to China after Beijing shut down the hotel chain's website because it listed Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet and Macau as separate countries. "We don’t support separatist groups that subvert the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China," the company said in a statement.

All three big U.S. airlines — American, United and Delta — bent to China's will last summer and scrubbed references to Taiwan as its own country.

The Gap — under threat of getting cut out of China — apologized for selling T-shirts with a map of China that didn't include Tibet or Taiwan. The company said its map was "incorrect."

Beijing, which is Hollywood's biggest international market, has also pushed American studios to alter content in order to get into Chinese theaters. From Axios

And their U.S. boards and shareholders would eviscerate them if they didn’t capitulate.

Gosh, see how liberating capitalism is when left unfettered?

Free Taiwan.... Ok, we won't talk about it.
Free Tibet ... nah, they don't exist any more. Successful genocide.
Free Mongolia ... Genocide in process. Anyone want to buy a nice liver, kidney, heart ? Cheap !
Free Hong Kong ... Internet is going down there shortly and there will be um... a 'correction of the lawlessness'. Nothing to see here, move along. Lots of cheap human organs from young people, very healthy !
