Haha, holy shit dude! Really? People making a choice about their business practices is equivalent to the book burnings of Berlin?

You know the burnings they held outside Humboldt University (and elsewhere across Germany) in '33 were the prelude to very real state repression of authors - several who died in concentration camps, right?

Dachau opened within months of the embers dying.

A gaming platform or a publishing house saying 'No thanks, we're good' is in *no way* equivalent to inflaming public tensions against an author as a prelude to their surpression.

To think otherwise is historically illiterate and just plain fucking dumb.
