As you know, I utterly love China.
Sure, there’s some things I’m not that keen on … the pollution and the copyright infringement to name a few … but apart from that, it’s amazing in so many ways.
The speed of change.
The integration of technology in daily life.
The TV programs that show a young girl make animals fall asleep on National TV.
All this from a communist country.
I know, everyone talks about China in terms of its mass consumption, and I get that, but make no mistake, China is a communist nation.
Sure, it doesn’t always appear that way.
[Though much of that is based on our prejudice of how a communist country should look]
And it doesn’t always act that way.
[Though communism never said the people couldn’t all be rich. Though that is far from being the case here so that’s not an argument I can make with a straight face]
But the fact is, it is … even if it is only demonstrated by the sorts of signs I saw above.
Though – to be fair – the sign isn’t really telling people to not spend their money on material possessions, but to warn sightseers [I took this at The Bund] of dodgy tourist guides.
But hey, since when has this blog – or advertising – been about ultra accuracy. Ahem.
