I'm just about half way through, 'Every Breath You Take,(China's new tyranny)', by Ian Williams.

If accurate then China at the moment is a very, very scary place both for it's citizens and for the world.

I will need to read it a few times and I think I still won't understand the reason's behind the thoughts of Xi Jinping and his reasons for creating the yoke he has tied round the necks of the people.

Certainly not a place I'll ever be visiting.

They're flooded the world (almost plague like) with cheap low quality shite.  And when a stance was finally taken, with tariffs, we coincidentally end up with a global pandemic emanating out of China.  Which of course didn't affect them too badly;)

That's before you get to their human rights issues.

China's political slogans (提法 ti2fa3) are quite fascinating things.

Sometimes understandable, sometime not.

The BBC has recently had a go looking at some of them:

1. 只有社会主义才能救中国

Zhi1you3 she4hui4zhu3yi1 cai2 neng2j iu4 zhong1guo2

Only Socialism can save China.

2. 从群众中来,到群众中去

Cong2 qun2zhong4 zhong1 lai2, dao4 qun2zhong4 zhong1 qu4

From the masses to the masses

3. 百花齊放,百家爭鳴

Bai3hua1 qi2fang4, bai3jia1 zheng1ming2

Let a hundred flowers bloom; let a hundred schools of thought contend.

4. 两条腿走路

Liang3 tiao2 tui3 zhou3 lu4

Walking on two legs

5. 造反有理;

Zao4fan4 you3 li3

To rebel is justified

6. 让一部分人先富起来

Rang4 yi1bu4fen4 ren2 xian1 fu4 qi3lai2

Let some people get rich first

7. 民主万岁

Min2zhu3 wan4 sui4

Long live democracy

8. 中国梦

Zhong1guo2 meng4

The China Dream

 

They also had a go back in 2013
