    What I mean is that there will likely be a lot of people 18 to 25 years old that really liked/was addicted to Tik Tok who will not take this ban lightly and will go vote to express their anger about this ban (these people would have otherwise not voted).

    I echo your sentiments. Since Disney bought Star Wars, it has lost the essence of what made it special for me.. New commercial films are mostly standardized formula to maximize reach of audiences including non English speaking audiences such as in China.

    The primary purpose of a justice system is to keep the public safe. Hmm lower crime and incarceration rate would qualify wouldn't it?

    Crime rate:

    Number of prisoners per 100,000:

    Number of police officers per 100,000:

    Who's doing a better job by the numbers? Anymore Indian wisdom to share?

    And the primary purpose of justice system is to provide justice for the one who seeks. For a country with a 99.9% conviction rate, your system essentially prosecutes anyone who is taken up by the cops. That's not justice.

    "Nearly all criminal cases that go to trial in Japan end in a guilty verdict. Two veteran legal scholars explain how Japan came to have a 99.9% conviction rate and examine the issues facing Japanese prisons."

    https://www.nippon.com/en/japan-top...-explaining-japan’s-99-9-conviction-rate.html

    I assume you're gonna say Japan has no justice since it has higher conviction rate than China? Or are you going to tell me Americans have no justice because they jail three times the number of residents per 100,000 than China?

    I knew you would come up with a country that has an extremely low crime rate, to justify yours.

    We have both lower crime rate and lower incarceration rate than Japan or US. South Korea also has a 97% conviction rate, and higher percentage of population in its prisons.

    Your narrative that police in China are arresting people left and right has more holes than your brain. There are extremely few cases to begin with in the first place in comparison to outside world. It's certainly safer and more prosperous with much better opportunities for its citizens than that rape capital you call India.

    I know chinese have a hook or crook thought process, but you should be ashamed of something like that.

    Reprehensible.

    He certainly is crushing his own country real good and pissing off all his friends. I wholeheartedly support 4 more years of Donald.
    No we didn't. Americans are in a mess because of their inability to coordinate their response, not because of some non-existent external attack.

    Why do you post the dumbest shit like this all the time?

    As dumb as he is sometimes, he's still more intelligent than most Indians.
