"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Coach Carter

** I loosely use the word "boycott" to mean do not support, buy less, look for alternatives if possible and do not mean complete 100% rejection of that brand. A Chinese company has invested some shares in Reddit, however, my personal view is if I can use Reddit or other mediums, be it Chinese or otherwise to reach out and promote the Hong Kong protest to a wider audience, which may include Mainland Chinese, I strongly feel the pro outweighs the cons. Use your own judgement.
