The Terrifying Truth Behind CCP's 100 Year Anniversary
The 100 year anniversary of the CCP, or the Communist Party of China, was a display that shocked the world with its imagery. I explain what it meant, and how we can read China better.

Will Hong Kong CRUSH Falun Gong?
Since Hong Kong's national security law was passed one year ago, there has been an erosion of the freedoms that Hong Kongers have come to expect as a former British colony. Hong Kong used to operate under a "one country, two systems" model that allowed things like freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom to practice any religion. Now that that's changing, there's a canary in the coal mine that some people are watching to see just how authoritaian Hong Kong's government (or really Beijing's government) has become. That canary is Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, a meditation practice that has been persecuted in the mainland since 1999.

Jackie Chan Wants to Join the Chinese Communist Party!
Celebrity actor Jackie Chan is a big fan of the Chinese Communist Party. He’s such a fan that he even wants to join the party! But unlike being in a party where you get served cocktails with shrimp, being in the Chinese Communist Party is a little bit more, well, complicated. Watch this episode to find out why Jackie Chan loves the party, but the party may not love him back.

@rockdog @no smoking can you throw some light on this. is this done on request of people or happened over night by CCP leadership?

i am agreeing with Xi on this.
=========
#China TV overhaul announced today banning mass "vote him/her off the island" type voting. Only a live audience can make selections. Shows training young performers to be stars: banned. Actors with "incorrect" political views: banned. "Effeminate" style male actors: banned.

There was a popular idol talent show here in #China which required fans to buy sponsored products in order to vote for their favourite young star. This led to some fans buying and then throwing out massive amounts of yoghurt. This type of voting is now prohibited.

"Sissy" men, "vulgar influencers" and those with "lapsed morals" have been banned from television shows in #China. Programme makers have been urged to steer away from "abnormal aesthetics" and inflating the pay of stars.

On the other hand, TV programmers in #China have been encouraged to vigorously promote traditional Chinese culture and "advanced socialist culture". The public should be guided on the "correct" political direction and correct values via "spiritual leadership".

At the moment, barely a day goes by without one sector or another of the Chinese economy / Chinese society being overhauled by the Communist Party. It's been hard to keep up with all the changes in #China recently and I'm doing it for my job.

In terms of banning the television "sissy boys" in #China, many of the programmes being targeted here have been modelled on Korean and Japanese television, Korean K-pop boys etc. #Korea #SouthKorea #Japan

I agree to what he is doing with banning "sissy boys", because I am observing this trend of young kids, especially male kids becoming too "sensitive", these K-Pop band groups like BTS and doll shows do rewire the brain of young kids.

However, he is creating a watchman state. He started overhauling schooling with history books whitewashing Mao's crimes.

This is a little clickbaitey, (but its a youtube channel after all), but IMO it does have some substance. Basically the recent steps that we are seeing are not isolated, but part of a "Profound" change/revolution, Xi is charting a new course for China (no longer in the path they have been following the last 4-5 decades). Here's the English translation of the last few paras which has the conclusion.
Everyone can feel that a profound change is taking place
...
  From Ant's IPO being called off, to the central government's rectification of the economic order and anti-monopoly, to Ali being fined 18.2 billion yuan and DDT being investigated, to the central government's grand commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Party and its proposal to take the road to common prosperity, as well as the recent series of rectification actions on the chaos in the entertainment industry, all tell us that China is undergoing major changes, from the economic field, the financial field, the cultural field to the political field, a profound A profound change, or a profound revolution, can be said. It is a return from the capitalist group to the people, a change from capital-centered to people-centered. It is therefore a political change in which the people are reemerging as the subject of this change, and all those who stand in the way of this people-centered change will be abandoned. This profound change is also a return, a return to the original heart of the CPC, a return to people-centeredness, and a return to the essence of socialism.

  This change will wash away all the dust, the capital market will no longer become a haven for capitalists to get rich overnight, the cultural market will no longer become a haven for pussy stars, the press will no longer become a position for worshipping Western culture, the red will return, the heroes will return, the bloodiness will return. Therefore we need to govern all cultural chaos, building a vibrant, healthy, masculine, strong, people-oriented culture, we need to combat the capital market manipulation of large capital, the platform monopoly through, bad money to expel good money chaos, guide the flow of capital to the real enterprise, to high-tech enterprises, to the manufacturing industry, the current ongoing governance of education chaos from the governance of training institutions, school rooms, so that education really In the future, we have to deal with high housing prices and high medical expenses, and completely level the three mountains of education, medical care and housing. Although we are not going to kill the rich to help the poor, we need to effectively solve the problem of growing income disparity between the rich and the poor, and common prosperity is to enable ordinary workers to earn more income in the distribution of social wealth. This change will bring a series of new weather to our society, the current rectification of the entertainment circle, literature and art circle, film and television circle is far from enough, to use all means to combat the current social existence of a variety of star-catching, rice circle phenomenon, completely put an end to the social character of the phenomenon of sissies and fresh meat, really let the entertainment circle, literature and art circle, film and television circle wind is right, gas is right, our various types of literary and artistic workers, film and television workers are To the grassroots, so that ordinary workers, ordinary people become the master and protagonist of literature and art.

  At present, China is facing an increasingly severe and complex international environment. The United States is implementing increasingly severe military threats, economic and technological blockades, financial strikes, and political and diplomatic encirclement against China, and is waging biological warfare, cyber warfare, public opinion warfare, and space warfare against China, with increasing efforts to launch a color revolution against China through the fifth column within China. If at this time we still rely on the big capitalists as the main force against imperialism and hegemony, and still cater to the U.S. titty music strategy, and let our young generation lose their toughness and virility, then we will fall first without our enemies, just like the Soviet Union did back then, letting the country collapse, letting the country's wealth be looted, and letting the people fall into a deep disaster. Therefore, the profound changes that are currently taking place in China are precisely to deal with the current severe and complex international situation, and precisely to deal with the savage and ferocious attacks that the United States has begun to launch against China.

  Each of us can feel that a profound social change has begun, not only in the capital circle, but also in the entertainment circle, not only to destroy and heal the bones, but also to clean the house, to freshen the air, to make our society healthier, so that social subjects can feel physically and mentally happy. (Li Guangman)
