Another Effect of the Chinese Government vs. Hong Kong
Earlier this month, the Chinese government pressured a gaming company to suspend a pro gamer who spoke out on the Hong Kong side of the recent controversy. I suspect that might have made free speech respectable again. Now, when you're pro-free-speech, you are on the side of Hong Kong and not merely on the side of seven zillion witches. That might even be responsible for Mark Zuckerberg defending free expression.
