AMAZING NEWS: 9/13/20:

News from all over the mental map this week.

Disney’s live action Mulan criticized for filming in province where Uighers are interred and for praising Chinese propaganda office.  (Mini Editorial:  this is an exemplary illustration of the expression “lie down with dogs, get up with fleas”:  Disney has censored its films and given support to Chinese propaganda in an effort to gain access to China’s market.  Now, it’s film is paying a price at the box office because China is suppressing news reporting on controversy surrounding the film.  This is also an example of exactly what could happen with a Chinese WorldCon:  all of the best of intentions twisted into propaganda for genocide.) More. And More.
