Apple Free Speech

It has not been a good week for Apple with the spotlight turned directly on the Politics the organization appears to be trying to push.

Apple have according to Elon Musk threatened to pull Twitter from the App Store because Musk has made it a free speech platform, at the same time they have remained silent on the workers at their factories in China being in full revolt against the Government over conditions in the country.

“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter,” Must wrote. “Do they hate free speech in America?”

The answer is yes, not only do they hate free speech in America, they hate it all over the world. In the United States, Apple remains one of the “Big Four” tech giants with a backdoor hand in censorship.

Contrary to what Apple says, many of the apps that are blocked by its teams are not related to gambling or porn. This is especially true for China, where there are currently 10852 apps unavailable, including News Apps such as the New York Times and the BBC.

Apple enables the Chinese government’s surveillance and censorship of citizens, as well as denying people living under China’s rule access to a free and open internet.

At the request of the government of China, Apple has removed 1,000+ “virtual private networks” (VPNs) from the App Store in China, in addition to news media apps like The New York Times and Quartz.

VPNs not only allow access to information but they provide critical, safe communication channels for Tibetans, Uyghurs, and Chinese dissidents and human rights defenders working to secure basic rights and freedoms.

In October 2019, Apple removed HKmap.live; a crowdsourcing app being used by Hong Kong residents, journalists, and tourists to see where protests and police build-up are happening to allow areas to be avoided and to stay safe.

Some more damming evidence from STALLMAN.ORG

Apple spies on its users, and helps others spy on them.

  • If you carry a cell phone, it tells Big Brother where you are. Apple wants to hand out the information too.Using the lever of “You have a choice, but unless you say yes, your old activities will stop working” is something that Apple has done before, with malicious “upgrades”. Apple ostensibly doesn’t force people to accept the new nasty thing; it just punishes them if they don’t.
  • Apple left a security hole in iTunes unfixed for 3 years after being informed about the problem. During that time, governments used that security hole to invade people’s computers.
  • Apple’s Capitulation to China’s VPN Crack-Down Will Return to Haunt it at Home.
  • Apple has outsourced its user data storage in China to a company controlled by the Communist Party of the province of Guizhou
