China Formally Becomes Dictatorship, Again

China Formally Becomes Dictatorship, Again

March 11th, 2018

Via: BBC:

China has approved the removal of term limits for its leader, in a move that effectively allows Xi Jinping to remain as president for life.

The constitutional changes were passed by China’s annual sitting of the National People’s Congress on Sunday.

The vote was widely regarded as a rubber-stamping exercise. Two delegates voted against the change and three abstained, out of 2,964 votes.

China had imposed a two-term limit on its president since the 1990s.

But Mr Xi, who would have been due to step down in 2023, defied the tradition of presenting a potential successor during October’s Communist Party Congress.

Instead, he consolidated his political power as the party voted to enshrine his name and political ideology in the party’s constitution – elevating his status to the level of its founder, Chairman Mao.

    The President is dead. Long live the President…

    …followed closely by, “Plus ca change, plus ce la meme chose”.

    (The more things change, the more they stay the same)

    What’s truly funny is the whole idea that the ruling political junta were ever actually anything BUT a dictatorship.

    (in truth, this statement could easily be applied to every nation-state on earth, if one is willing to stop marching to the heavy drumming of all the different flavors of modern propaganda and step out of line.)
