What the CCP thinks is funny:
What actually is funny:
So-called Autonous Regions, meet Ein Reich, Ein Volk, Ein Fuhrer & Eine Han-Pekingese Sphrache.
(with new and improved Party-State-capitalistic characteristics... )
NB. The CCP under omnimpotent Dada also considers supporting the status quo (i.e. not supporting CCP's right to launch military invasion) an act against it and its "sovereign" rights...

And in other news, meanwhile in the CCP-ruled PRC... One. Hundred. Million. Children.
So, certain ill-willed illibertarian Canada-residing Han chauvinist polemicist has penned what appears to be an euphemism-laden piece on Carl Schmitt, the Nazi icon aka "Hitler's Crown Jurist" (1933-1945) who is now venerated as the saviour of the CCP of a new nazional-sozialist era.
Schmitt's fine legalistic innovation can be summed up as "a dictatorship can and must do anything to preserve itself and codifying its own actions as 'lawful' gives it a veneer of respectability".
Pursuing Lebensraum and genocide at neighbours' expense? Check.
All perfectly 'legal' and 'respectable' under the dictatorship's own 'laws'.
Also a very helpful concept with all the sycophants, "loyal trash" and others "just following orders"...
So-called "NSL" anyone?
Here's a good backgrounder on the character that first helped to justify Nazi policies and now the CCP...
The Nazi Inspiring China’s Communists
A decades-old legal argument used by Hitler has found support in Beijing.
Broader look may support different hypotheses...
Broad proportion of sheep affinity for brands (name recognition), strongmen, and authority. Or just plain old naïveté.
Left out from those surveys - Brazil, India, Philippines and Turkey... I'd like to know what their numbers are.
I wish they'd also surveyed opinions on the local leader of the day in each of those published countries.
