To The People of Hong Kong: On Virtue, Authority, and Terror (Marshall vs. Cathay Pacific Management)

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Everyone I know is terrified of air travel.

Literally. Everyone.

They have infinite power and zero accountability.

When you're in an airport, you're at the mercy of the people there. If they don't like what you're doing, they can do anything they want to you, and you have no recourse.

I understand the necessity of that coercive power - but such immense power requires immense accountability.

Cathay De-Escalates, Clears Marshall of Wrongdoing

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

I know everyone is getting bored of Cathay, and I'm trying to get back on interesting strategic content, philosophy, etc. But hey, I want to give credit where it's due - they've started to de-escalate and get reasonable.

Some facts here are wrong, and there's some omissions. But anyways, I appreciate this Joseph.

I filmed a video reply (that's friendly!) and I'll post it later. Really, it's entertaining.

Anyways, they're originally saying I caused a gigantic disturbance and was a huge problem, then I said I was going to bring tons of legal action against them (which, y'know, usually means they'd want to preserve their leverage by holding everything over my head that they can), and yet now they just filed no complaints, no charges, and cleared me to fly. That's interesting, isn't it?
