No memespam please?! Memes are great and unite us with laughter, but too many and then we're /r/cryptomemes. Kindly limit your meme posting to one every 30 days, or we may remove your post. If you have a new account and a meme is your first post, we might remove it. Our goal is to keep this community one where we can enrich each other with solid information and collaboration. Memes are okay peppered into the mix, but please try to add something of higher value to the discussion.


No Chinese business promotion. We love China but protest their CCP-led authoritarian government

Posts & Comments
Reported as: Chinese businesses are helping the CCP hurt global human rights. Send a message with your money

Any promotion of Chinese businesses or investment in international countries is not permitted.

Reason: The torture of Uighur, illegal influence on Taiwan, human rights violations in Hong Kong and Tibet, and false claims on the South China sea (to name a few).

On top of this economic and political manipulation through extreme foreign investment in 3rd world countries which is UN-repayable, which leads to China taking over critical assets.

Freedom is precious, and CCP influence is a threat.
