but they have 4 times more population of USA so each Chinese person pollute 4 times less that an American.
they produce so much goods for USA and other country, that this pollution should be calculated on the buying/using country total pollution produce and not on China.
I have a friend who has been working in China for 12 years as an engineer. They are taking pollution and climate change very seriously and they will soon lead the world in that regard... contrary to countries who denies the existence of a problem and pushing/helping polluting coal, fuel etc.
The problem with China is the lack of respect for other country invention and having a government who won't let newspaper, and journalist write negative article about the government...
I'll be the one to ask the question - do Apple's politics play a role in this?
I'm not referring to the shows in general but I feel like there are a large amount of users, like me, that are conservative and don't give TV+ a chance because they figure there won't be any shows for them?
I think a Band of Brothers(or The Pacific) type show following a certain unit in WW2, a Detective type show like Bosch on Prime, an Indiana Jones type hero show, etc. would bring in me and fellow rednecks like me even though we might not agree with Apple on politics.
- I will once again reiterate that if things continue to go in the wrong direction for TV+, Apple should make TV+ free and have 2-3 minutes of advertising per show. People don't have to watch but I think most would and advertising rates could be huge. A much bigger moneymaker than a subscription service IMO.

Just a measly 2.5% of the company. The following quarters should buy 2% or more as long as the price stays low.

Imagine them having to campaign(on the line at any rate) without being able to call their opponents racist, "literally Hitler", etc..
Don't worry. The truth always comes out in the end.
As the old axiom goes - accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.
