Soft Power is like the Wind
The Simpsons are like the wind! I would argue that the power of the Simpsons is a type of soft power. Soft power is like the wind and can erode anything over time. Soft power is invariably unseen by anyone until suddenly a zeitgeist revolution occurs.
Hong Kong Customers noticed that episode 12 of season 16 is missing from Disney +, which launched in the city this month. This comes as authorities in Hong Kong clamp down on the entertainment industry, banning films that violate a strict national security law. Disney has not commented on the missing episode. The episode, named “Goo Goo Gai Pan”, sees the cartoon family, the Simpsons visit China. Anyone who knows anything about Chinese politics and culture must have realized that episode would be censored in Hong Kong and elsewhere.
