Public Humiliation in China- A la Confucius

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2010

Actually this is a confuciuan ideal, public humiliation, and the Chinese want to export that to us.

China Uses Public Humiliation as punishment.
Enforcement officers in southwestern China stuck confiscated paper advertisements all over the bodies of two boys and paraded them after they were found dispensing the ads in Chongqing.

The image “https://i0.wp.com/www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2006-09/24/xin_220903240959540218047.jpg†cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Police officers covered the boys, 10 and 15, with the ads, in an attempt to publicly humiliate them.The illegal flyers are everywhere, and have come to be known as ‘urban psoriasis’.
Even in the Chinese capital, the flyers are found in walkways and overpasses.

The two boys admitted this is the second time they had been caught pasting the adlets around the city. But using public humiliation to attempt to control the use of the adlets in China has met with strong criticism from the public.

“It is an insult to the boys,” an anonymous local resident said, with another asking “how would these officers feel if their children had undergone a public parade?”

China Creates New Internet Suffix- zhongguo

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2010

China has created the suffix, ‘zhnogguo’ which in pinyin means China.the funny thing is that the url will also accept traditional Chinese characters so that yoiu can type .zhongguo or

So for instance, you can type in blahblah.zhongguo or blahblah.中国, both of which it will recognize. I say great job! I mean isnt it much more efficient to type zhongguo, which is 8 keystrokes rather than the more efficient .cn? This is just China, htey have a ton of people so efficiency is not even in their vocabulary.

China to Spread Communist Propaganda Abroad

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 29, 2010

File this one under communist propaganda heading overseas. I live here and basically all of the news is terrible, it is white-washed bullshit. Even the educated Chinese dont watch nor read it, so why would foreigners?

“Country aims to establish ‘a batch of world-famous cultural brands’

BEIJING – China will boost the development of its cultural and media industries abroad to reduce its big cultural deficit, senior officials have said.

In a report about China’s cultural industry development delivered to the top legislature on Wednesday, Minister of Culture Cai Wu said China plans to expand the export of its cultural products and promote Chinese culture abroad.

Favorable policies on the export of cultural products and services, in terms of market expansion, technical innovation and customs clearance, will be issued or fully implemented, he told the National People’s Congress Standing Committee.”
