> I can only surmise that living under that kind of oppression

It is my very strong suspicion that a large percentage of ANY population prefers to be told what to believe.

It is genetic IMO. It explains why people believe things that are obviously not true. It explains why people from a civilized well educated nation would embrace Hitler or trump. These are the people susceptible to propaganda and advertising.

Its a bell curve.

At the opposite end are people completely immune to propaganda. Most people dwell somewhere in between.

No doubt in my mind that hundreds of million in China totally support their dictatorship.

> amazing if the population in general has suddenly turned on Apple

A large portion of China thinks the west caused China to fall behind economically and technologically. There are very good historical reasons for them to believe that.

Tea, opium and Great Britain. Japan as it is allied with the west which if you think about it has been the case since WWII.

So its not so sudden... trump is a catalyst and Apple is symbolic, first of wealth, now of western oppression.
