An American company gathering data is quite different than a enemy foreign power doing so. Now, NEITHER is good or right. It is just that one is much worse than the other.
then don’t download it. Non Americans may feel the same about Facebook and other platforms collecting data but I bet people would lose their shit if countries all over the world started banning American social media platforms. Also, banning an entire app would be near impossible. People who really want access to TikTok would find a way around the ban through VPN and other ways to change IP address.
And idk about your position on the matter but I would like to hear if @comicsgate agrees with this, as he/she still can’t comprehend the fact that Ukraine shut down churches and political figures with ties to Russia after the war started as it’s tyrannical and whatever. I’m curious if he keeps the same energy with banning Chinese platforms.
Is that cancel culture? No. A person is not being cancelled by a mob it’s a legislative body legally deciding via the law.
so it’s canceling in a bigger proportion. Or at the very least censorship. Not very freedom-like, if you ask me.
