I’m growing weary of this series of posts, to be honest with you, Loyal Readers. Losing my Tibet post into the aether of the Intertubes was a bit demoralizing, to be honest, and I think you get the point by now.
This post was intended to discuss how pervasive the Communist Party is in China. Topics of discussion were to include 1) the party’s monopoly on all positions of any governmental power, 2) the party’s censorship of all media to eliminate counter-cultural or disestablishmentarian messages, and 3) the network of secret police and informers that send friends and family members off to labor and re-education camps. But if you’ve been reading the rest of the Evil Olympics series, you’ve heard about all of that already. And if you haven’t been reading about the Evil Olympics, then by now you aren’t going to start and nothing I write will make you care.
I have, however saved one more subject for my grand finale. Read all about it tomorrow.
