In China, it is only 1 day left before the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party. Lol. To be honest it is the first time that the Communists make such a big noise just for their congress. =(.
I still remember when the 1st Congress was held, they secretly and quietly held the meeting in a lecture hall, hoping that nobody would know.
But today, look at them! Nearly a century later, they are acting proudly as if fearing that nobody would know they are about to have a meeting!
But at the same time, they still fear that someone will come to sabotage. They raised the security level everywhere over and over again, interrupt the express deliveries, cut down the internet communications, and even mute anyone who dares to criticize. It’s hilarious that a post from National Weather Service, a Typhoon Yellow Warning, was deleted due to it is related to the word “Yellow”, which also means “Pornographic” in Mandarin. (Later they deleted the complaint from National Weather Service that their weather warning was deleted by mistake.) In this special period, they are releasing a signal that “No one makes trouble!”.
I guess it is another form of “the government fears the people”? I used to believe that the Communist Party do not fear their people, but I was wrong: they finally noticed that no one is THEIR PEOPLE. More and more people would rather not to believe the Communist Party nowadays.
But, as the Iron Curtain was formed, will it be possible to break it? Nowhere to get the answer. Maybe the Mao II is coming.
