1. Fiction's most important function is to find easy scapegoats to important and complex problems
(that's why fiction feels so good; the "answers" are so obvious and easy to digest)
2. When the going get tough, the tough scapegoat
(toughness isn't the same thing as wisdom, which is what is needed to actually solve a problem)

You need to prove your claim with numbers, because USA media is a thousand times larger in reach than Chinese media. Hard to believe that the Chinese media is doing anything except fighting fire with fire (against the biggest and most important liars in the West).

QatzelOk wrote:Was China created in 1948?
If so, then the link with George Orwell's book "1984" is striking.

It was founded in 1921, chiefly by Chen Duxiu and Li Dazhao. The party grew quickly, and by 1949 it had driven the Kuomintang (KMT)'s Nationalist Government from mainland China to Taiwan after the Chinese Civil War, leading to the establishment of the People's Republic of China. It also controls the country's armed forces, the People's Liberation Army.

QatzelOk wrote:So you are suggesting that George Orwell, while working in Burma doing torture for the British Empire, followed what was happening on China with his binoculars, and then wrote a book about their sophisticated PR and propaganda techniques and where they would ultimately lead.
I don't buy it. He was far more familiar with the oligarchs of Europe and their brutality and scheming (what the victims of propaganda media call "conspiracy theories").
Patrickov wrote:This statement is made as if non-Europeans don't engage in propaganda.
I have to say such mindset needs to fuck off.
Everyone engages in some kind of propaganda, the only difference is that non-Europeans (e.g. Chinese / North Koreans) often engage in propaganda without some convincing work backing them up.
