The Japanese-owned operator of 7-Eleven convenience stores in Beijing has been fined for describing Taiwan as an independent country and other naming conventions on its company website.

 

The Beijing municipal government in December issued a warning to the company and imposed a fine of 150,000 yuan ($23,500), according to a credit information site affiliated with the Chinese government. The stores in the capital are run by a local unit of Seven-Eleven Japan, a subsidiary of Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings.

 

The company also failed to use Chinese names for several South China Sea islands as well as for the Japanese-administered Senkaku Islands, which China claims and calls the Diaoyu, according to the site.

...

 

 

Note: the fine is stated to be only 50,000 yuan by some sources, but China's very own South China Morning Post (linked) states it to be 150,000 yuan.

I don't like the way people are okay with with this, it's like everyone is scared to go against China. The more powerful they get, the more they can take.

If the world didn't stand up to the USA (which has broadly intervened and exerted more force far beyond its borders), they will hardly stand up to China and their regional diplomatic squabbles.

China’s takeover of Taiwan will either cause WW3 (against China), or worse, every country in the world accepts China taking over an entire land in fear. We are truly living through scary times and hardly anyone knows it.

Taiwan is a strategic location where the chips for computers, phones, cars,... (new economy) come from. For the West, it's like Saddam taking over Saudi Arabia for controlling the access to the oil (old economy).

 

At the same time Xi's China is self-destructing awfully fast, many industries deleted overnight, 300+ million people unemployed or underemployed, the exodus of foreign companies that used to provide jobs, millions of Chinese businesses disappeared last year, going for Maoism again,... There are estimates of their GDP going for the -60% drop. We might see how a country can pull an Artpop decline in success, relevancy,...

 

The quickest way to get rid of China, is convincing them to make short-sighted, ill-thought decisions that is going to backfire hard. In late 1950s the party has decided that the sparrows weren't allowed to eat 1% of the grain and they made the decision that the sparrows should be remove from the country (Four Pests campaign), it caused the locust populations to go out of control and eat all the food. 15 to 55 million people died during the Great Chinese Famine. Australia succeeded in trolling China into creating an energy crisis, multiple days per week of no electricity in the cities and shutting down factories multiple days per week.
