(LINK) The China Cultural Clash – Stratechery by Ben Thompson

I don’t subscribe anymore to his newsletter so I am thankful this post is one of his public ones.

My beef has always been the simple premise that China is allowed to buy whatever they want overseas but they don’t allow me the same access in China.

They also don’t allow me to build and ship any product I want into China but yet with TikTok they want to build and ship to any country they want.

This NBA thing is the next facet to this issue – China can do whatever they want to control information in China but now they want to control information in other countries. I think they overplayed their hand here.

Let’s hope the global backlash grows and we get more companies and people speaking out like the NBA did.
