China is maybe jumping the shark, stuff like this has to be a material productivity and motivation killer.

The 'central control' thing seemed to be working there for a while for a few decades, I wonder if we're seeing the end of the 'golden leap' what with lower growth, problems abroad, and internal shenanigans like this.

I also wonder how many Chinese actually 'get this' program, and how many see through it for what it is.

It's one thing to have bits of propaganda into film and TV, it's another thing altogether to force people to do some 'daily shenanigan'.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
