The last two are yet another example of the Xi-led CCP (the XiCP?) crackdown on the culture of today’s society. Even some of the most lovable aspects of Chinese culture are not safe from the CCP, even as officials have some kind of obsession with promoting Chinese culture. A Chinese culture that has been sterilized and stamped and sealed with their approval, that is.
Sometimes the CCP’s ridiculous policies can be so ridiculous that they’re amusing, but other times their ridiculousness just makes you feel a little :(
