Recently, Chinese netizens on various different popular Chinese BBS internet discussion forums have begun circulating and collectively contributing to a collection of photographs taken all around China. With a name that sounds similar to the recent “Photograph and Rescue Child Beggars” campaign, the “Photograph Your Area’s Government Office Building” Chinese netizen phenomenon “exposes” the government office buildings found in various provinces, counties, cities, and towns throughout China that “cause people to stare in awe”. It is said that these photos reveal that the scale and splendor of government office buildings even in impoverished areas of China’s western interior certainly do not “lose in the slightest” to those in China’s wealthier coastal areas.

Comments from Mop:
A common problem in the Heavenly Kingdom. If the money spend building these luxurious vanity projects were used on the parts of the population that have been forgotten or on the lives of the peasants/farmers, what would things be like [for the country] now?
Pretty good, there’s nothing inappropriate, would you rather all of them work in single-story offices so they would appear simple/modest?
Good buildings! China is truly strong and powerful.
I really don’t understand why government buildings are constructed to look like the White House [look so extravagant]? No one is going to praise you as being impressive, they will only say you are corrupt. If you’re going to construct something, first construct/fix the Project Hope schools, hospitales, and roads, and then naturally the ordinary common people will praise you. I really don’t know what these leaders are thinking. The one in our town doesn’t even have 100 workers, yet it occupies 1/3 of the entire town, the large building is the absolute best in the entire town. So disgusting.
Grass mud horse, in other countries, some of the government offices are rented, good enough if they can be used, so why fucking make them this big for? So one person can use 5 offices? Grass mud horse.
Ding, [the government buildings are] pretty much the same everywhere [throughout China].
Would you be satisfied if the government’s buildings were really poor and rundown??
No matter much hardship there is going on, the leaders must not be allowed to suffer hardship. No matter how poor people are, the leaders must not suffer poverty!
Let some get rich first, then eradicate those who cannot get rich, to finally achieve common prosperity!
Motherfucking CP! (Communist Party)
If America saw this, it’d even feel ashamed/inadequate…
Everywhere these office buildings are the best buildings in the entire city, so full of power and grandeur, that people are even afraid to get near them.
Which one do you like best?
So full of power and grandeur. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
