If China is going to pull this crap then lets just have a global ban on their products. The free world needs to work together to destroy this disgusting regime with its Winnie the Pooh leader

Money talks.  China imposing its own brand of orthodoxy and censorship around the world.

Try telling the Taiwanese they are part of "One China".  Or indeed, many folks in HK.......

You can't deal with a Chinese company without dealing with the Chinese government, and the Chinese government seeks to impose the same restrictions on the rest of the world that it does on its own people. Stop trading with them, isolate them, contain them.

Ha ha, if these "Brands" didn't use the cheep labour China provides then there is no hold, no reach around. Forget any monicom of decency it's all about making money at any cost.

forget rainbows and unicorns they are well behind being an Individual in China's eyes.

Subserviant to the state business wise or as an individual not acceptable for China. Want to smell nice look to personal hygiene not China.

I definitely agree.

I don't agree with ANY nation using sanctions or secondary sanctions to dominate any nation.

Hilarious that you can't bring yourself to utter the words, "I diasagree with what China is doing here."

Do you agree to a nation using sanctions and boycotts to dominate or dictate to other nations?

Yes, whennthose other nations are acting repugnantly like China is with HK, Tibet, the South China Sea, etc. sanctions are far better than war.

The majority of computers or least many of the parts are manufactured in China but with the trade war and introduction of tariffs company are looking to move. Apple which employs 4 million Chinese have moved some production to India and Brazil.

But the Chinese market is huge.

I’m not sure where or how you draw a line with this kind of thing.

The best we can do is try not to buy products or parts made in those countries whenever possible, and tell people we know to do the same.

Electronics is one of the hardest to get around. But clothing, household items, cars, etc.? There are Made in Japan, Made in USA, etc. options for almost all of those.

It'll be hard, but nothing good comes easy.

Complete agree.

I don’t agree with any nation

Just post you don’t agree with China. I don’t think you’ll be disappeared or you’ll be matched away for re-education if you post the words ‘I don’t agree with China’. Give it a try.

As for your sanctions question, I see economic sanctions as a very flawed but much better step than all out war but as I posted, I always struggle with who should be sanctioned, banned or boycotted.

More ant-China everything ranting. Would you like me to name another nation that is acting repugnantly?

Seriously, if you don’t like it call it out when you see it regardless of anything else. Otherwise you’re saying it’s OK because others do it too

I’m with you on how disgraceful the CCP is but there are plenty of other appalling regimes out there who deserve bans and boycotts.

I’m not sure where or how you draw a line with this kind of thing.

China's brand of authoritarian capitalism. Isn't that what Trump/Putin backers want?

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Yes, maybe China is placing the equivalent of sanctions or secondary sanctions similar to that which is placed by some other nations when they want to dominate.

So, do you agree or disagree with China’s action here?

"Dior always respects and upholds the one China principle, strictly safeguards China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and treasures the feelings of the Chinese people," it said,

French luxury brand Christian Dior "strictly safeguards China's sovereignty"?

This is not on China for complaining. It is their policy and its old and its known. Its on Christian Dior for caving so dramatically. Boycott Christian Dior and any company that sucks up to China so vigorously. I mean there is claiming to have made a mistake on one hand, but here they are just completely prostrating and thereby emboldening China.

All for the money..

**** "One China" !!..

Would you like me to name another nation that is acting repugnantly?

Only if it excuses China's repugnance.

Which, logically it couldn't.

So the answer to your question is "no". I wouldn't myself. I'd rather talk about the topic at hand - China trying to impose their silencing of human rights upon the rest of the world. It's disgusting, and any company that panders to them does not deserve to have a customer base in the rest of the western world. Companies like Dior that pander to China should be avoided by anyone who believes in human rights. These apologies to a violent dictatorship for breaking their rules that go against free speech must not continue.

"I always struggle with who should be sanctioned, banned or boycotted."

So sanctions are OK as long as YOU agree, otherwise, as in the case of China they are not OK.

And, I DO AGREE with China holding their citizens to account for RIOTING, vandalizing private and public property, attacking police and other citizens and throwing petrol bombs. All nations have and use riot police/National Guard to control riots.

I don't agree with ANY nation using sanctions or secondary sanctions to dominate any nation. Do you agree to a nation using sanctions and boycotts to dominate or dictate to other nations?
