In the eyes of the Chinese government, disaster is not a bad thing. People's Daily, the website of the People's Daily, published a comment today (March 4) saying that "a strong wind knows the grass, and a sloppy one knows a sincere minister." This is another way of saying "how hard it is to rejuvenate the country". To be precise, how difficult it is to raise the party.
The commentary said: "From the flood fight banner design in 1998, to the SARS fight in 2003, to the earthquake relief in 2008, the great struggles have taught us again and again: the Chinese Communist Party is the backbone of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation." The commentators on People's Daily Online are too modest. Since the CCP established its power in 1949, the anti-rightist movement, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, the Tangshan Earthquake, and the June 4th, which disaster was not the "great victory" that the CCP led the people to achieve? Whether it is a natural disaster whose prevention and control is delayed by it, or a man-made disaster caused entirely by it, it can be used to prove that it is the backbone of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation.
As with every disaster, when things go bad to the bottom line, there is no more bad news, the rest is good news. The death of tens of millions of citizens and the collapse of the entire society made everything in the "reform and opening up" period of good news. People can do business, go to school, and move. These rights are taken for granted in normal countries. In China, thanks to the wise leadership of the party.
