Apple is censoring words and phrases customers can engrave on products in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, which include 人权 (human rights), 新聞自由 (freedom of the press) and even numbers such as 8964 — which refer to the Tiananmen Square protests, which took place on June 4th, 1989, among others

For as long as the democratic world turns a blind eye and not "get down to their level", china and other dictators will continue to do as they please, when will we boycott a product or punish a company for cozying up to dictators? Or for supporting corruption?

There are other words and phrases outside of Chinese communism I believe that get given the same treatment:
- 1984
- Covid-19 totalitarianism.
- Illuminati
- and many more
