.https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/preaching-to-the-mob[Preaching to the mob meme template]: "中国人道德低下素质差。所以不适合民主。" Translation: The Chinese people are immoral and uneducated (people are angry). That's why they're not suitable for democracy (people are happy). This makes fun of the fact even if you say bad things about the Chinese, some people will complain that you are racist. But the same people will also say the same bad things about the Chinese people as a way to explain why it is better if they don't vote, and no one minds that. https://www.reddit.com/r/chonglangTV/comments/jssa4t/道德低下素质差的好处/[Source].

An amazing smear post: https://www.163.com/dy/article/G36KA6P80551MFOX.html 一个售卖肉体和灵魂的人——澳大利亚反华女妖许秀中 (A person who sells body and soul - Australian anti-Chinese female demon Vicky Xu) with a Photoshopped image entitled in Chinglish: "A tipster of Vicky Xu's private life - maintain sexual relationships with over 10 men at the same time". The real question in most men's mind is: "where do I sign up?".

Not about China specifically, but broadly anti-dictatorship, and so much of it applies perfectly!!! With that typical British humour touch of course.
We have to translate the following into Chinese and add to the relevant sections:

* https://scarfolk.blogspot.com/2020/03/social-distancing-laws-1970.html "Illegal to gather in groups of one". This is a reference to <<covid>>, but it also applies perfectly to the lack of freedom of assembly in China
* https://scarfolk.blogspot.com/2020/01/nhs-face-removals-1977.html "Lose Face" reminds one of the popular Chinese expression "miànzi 面子" translated at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Face_(sociological_concept)#Chinese as:

____
face; side; reputation; self-respect; prestige, honor; social standing
____

However, when you try to ask if you can make fun or criticize specific points of dictatorships like the Chinese government in 2021, many people in the Stack Exchange community simply refuse to give a clear yes or no answer:
- if they said no, they would be considered evil for supporting an evil dictatorship
- if they said yes, then this would allow you to post images that some people living in said dictatorship find distressing (Chinese media calls this "[to hurt the feelings of the Chinese people](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurting_the_feelings_of_the_Chinese_people)"), and like good Liberals we must strive to please *everyone*

So their tendency is to:
- reply that anything that is not suitable for work should not be allowed. But in the end, they mostly don't really enforce it for China.
- deciding allowed and non allowed topics is too hard. Sure I'm all for human rights, but I don't have the time right now
- say anything that is not suitable for work should not be allowed. But they don't really enforce it for China, because that would imply helping a dictatorship.
- say deciding allowed and non allowed topics is too hard. "Sure, I'm all for human rights, but I don't have the time to say yes/no right now"
- close/delete the discussions asking such questions, e.g.: https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/361493/200117 (Is Winnie-the-Pooh allowed or not?)
- this should be posted on Twitter! Sure, but I have no Twitter followers, and Twitter is banned in China.
Imagine if a legal system also "refused to give any clear and specific guidelines, rather deciding everything on a one-by-one basis".
