Comments on Sina:
Yes, indeed testing the people’s intelligence.
National slogans represent the path going forward, so that people will not be lost.
Long live understanding!
Our Party…has changed.
From brazenly evil gradually to faintly disgusting.
The beginning was exploring, the middle was being lost, then it was being on the right path, and now it is about making improvements.
As long as the government no longer oppresses the common people.
The Chinese Dream, such wishful thinking, haha.
Here to check your water meter.
Reject formalism, reject bureaucracy, reject thousands of years of unchanging slave mentality in the Heavenly Kingdom. This slogan is more befitting reality!
So all these years we’ve just been shouting slogans, so let’s just continue shouting slogans then! Either way, I’m already used to hearing the “serve the people” slogan!
The first 30 years turned China into hell on earth, the later 30 years has brought order to disorder, and now we are gradually getting on the right track with reason/rationality!
This is how Chinese people’s slave mentality was formed.
Is commenting allowed here, I’m so scared.
