Wei Wen

19 Dec

Wei Wen, Stability Preservation. It consumes USD 110 billion per year. It is to promote social STABILITY but actually it is money spend on attacking VPN sites, censorship, secret prisons, some social stability programs, resulting in arresting hundreds of activists and putting stringent limits on liberal discourse, leaving no free space for any. It includes both carrots and sticks (Yanda). Wei Wen seems to have been misused for land and asset claims, political games and private goals of local government officials. It is top down social management with low level of citizen participation.
Quote from Party Congress: “social management” that security forces must “put together a comprehensive and viable system to prevent [disturbances] and control social order, so that contradictions and disputes can be resolved at the embryonic stage”

The leadership’s intention is not to create a kind of civil society, but to improve the capacities of stability preservation.

“The CCP’s propaganda said there were two choices: either that democracy is chaos and bad for everyone; and the other, stability, but with high suppression. Chinese people think that state suppression is better than chaos, at least safer.”

The leadership’s intention is not to create a kind of civil society, but to improve the capacities of stability preservation.

Interesting to know: Political career based on economic kpi’s like growth and social stability, you can imagine ….

Is it real? just the other day I spoke to someone who said he know a person that became millionaire (Chinese RMB) selling algorithms for researching Weibo (Chineze facebook) and fast SDN blocking mechanisms. Since government can never do it themselves the finance these private entrepreneurs….
