Why can't software development just be software development? I hate when laws and politics, etc., get in the way

Look at this, for example: https://arstechnica.com/information...

Apple added some code to make the Chinese government happy, which resulted in a bug, which is stupid!

    Well, hiding the flag or reporting use of the word to the government is pretty bad to begin with.

    @ArcaneEye Sometimes a big corporation is more interested in expanding their market than they are in maintaining good, consistent principles.

    @ArcaneEye Definitely exemplifies my belief that the problems most people have with capitalism is capitalism to excess rather than capitalism in moderation. (Profit is okay, profit at the expense of every other consideration is bad.)

    @powerfulparadox I'm bleeding red on the inside, but I'm also pragmatic enough to see the world we live in and realise everyone else aren't content with equal share, and since it's hard to determine what that share would be, I'll just have to make sure I get more than enough.
    It sucks when you think about it, but socialism doesn't work with the way people think yet
