“Apple and Google agreed to demands from the Russian government to remove a strategic voting app developed by opposition leader Alexei Navalny from the iOS and Android app stores.

Apple then disabled its Private Relay feature (which enhances web browsing privacy) for users in Russia. Google also removed YouTube videos giving advice on how to vote strategically in the elections.”

Big Tech will choose profit over democracy and human rights every time.

@aral they don't have enough clout in russia to 'fortify' the elections enough to get him out yet, i guess :blobcatdunno:
@fluffy @aral
>Big tech at the guardians of the Judeo-Puritan Oligarchy's fake democracy

FIFY
@Aether @aral nobody is going to protect what is precious to you, least of all random companies who stand to profit.

btw big tech has done worse in the usa, although many americans won't admit it, too proud.
@fluffy @aral It is not really profit alone, I honestly think big tech are spending incredible amounts of capital to censor the right, and to a lesser extent the non-liberal left as our overlords and their SJW enforcers have commended it.

You are right that the USA's Big Tech censorship is worse then anything Russia and China are doing.

The censorship exists because of a consequence of the great meme war of 2016, GloboHomo always assumed its arguments would win but low and behold they lost. The censorship is to create a safe space of shitlibs and the house eunuch's of Conservativism Inc to have their fake and gay debate where our rulers can control the narratives and direction
@Aether @fluffy @aral anglin just posted a very long artical on china and it's pretty good. We will probably be doing war stuff soon but I really don't think China is at fault here as much as the West has gone completely insane.

@aral you really missed on the bit where Telegram founder threw a poll "what's better: disable these bots for two days or be completely blocked in the country" and the first choice won

@aral Good to know that this only happens in Russia and China, whereas in illuminated western democracies, these players selflessly service society. </irony>

@aral

This is interesting considering how that worked out in the US Elections. Shows who has the power, or who tech titans prefer to be in power, for their own gain?
