The way to wean Japanese youths away from these communist china spy apps is for JAPANESE app developers to come up with their own apps that are as equally enticing or more so.

It's hardly just the youth in Japan. It's the whole world that needs to be weaned off Chinese apps.

"According to Apptrace, the TikTok app is currently available in 141 countries. It is in the top 25 overall in 135 of these countries."

Chyna, Chyna, Chyna. China is just late to the game America started. If governments don't crack down on allied government and corporations spying on YOU, then there is always going to be cracks for non-allied spy software.

But before Edward Snowden most people were insisting claims of government spying were unfounded "conspiracy theory", or saying surely its all benign if its real. Put your brainwashing aside for a moment and realize that domestic enemies are actually more dangerous than foreign ones.
