    The opening scene might be the best part of that movie, it reminds me of Pixar's short films.

    Can people not make videos about movies without calling them "forgotten masterpieces" or "underrated" all the time? Just say the movie is good, you don't need to talk about how it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. It's especially annoying when there are thousands of people talking about how "underrated" the movie is, when it clearly isn't.

    I don't think any of them are in the wrong either, all of them clearly like the shisa to some extent.

    Because the comparison itself is disingenuous. White isn't a belief.

    Skin colour ≠ belief It's not like neo-nazis are extremely white.

    No, they're defending the notion that capitalism should be abolished.

    Took me longer than it should have to realize you were criticizing something that is often defended.

    Don't give yourself the choice to play games, then. Lock all your games up and throw the key away.

    Well 90% of the population use the internet, so I'd say yes. And if they didn't know about the Hong Kong protests now, I doubt some graffiti will change anything.

    No. This raises no awareness, the Hong Kong protests are already well known.

    Is the harm done worth the awareness raised?
