Cultural Revolution - Again?

Recently, Xinhua News Agency ran pieces that promoted “the spirit of the Boxers” and “the Fengqiao social management model”; and official documents stipulating that “Political Screening” be included in the National Higher Education Entrance Examination (commonly known as Gaokao for short) in places like Chongqing, Fujian, and Zhejiang. Alongside these ominous signs of a repeat of the Cultural Revolution is a video, sent to Mingjing News, of Big Character Posters in favor of the Cultural Revolution and oppose private ownership purportedly seen on the streets of Beijing. By now, the Chinese people should indeed take heed of what is about to come: the openly expressed longings by top officials like Xi Jinping for the way Mao Zedong governed China coincides with the Mao-Leftists who are becoming increasingly active, and the people at the bottom of society, those who became part of the leadership class and the driving force of the revolution are reliving their power hallucination.

Domestic Color Revolution of the Democrats

After the mid-term election was over on November 6, the Democratic Party took back the majority status in the House of Representatives while the Republicans maintained control in the Senate. Although the Blue Wave the Democrats called for became merely a ripple, the party sees a bright future in 2020 with the Republicans suffering setbacks in the suburbs. All in all, the color revolution instigated by the Democrats in the U.S. has finally begun to bear fruits. This color revolution aims to change the color of the people and that of the thought.
