Not Even Guan Yu

Even dead heroes are not allowed to steal the limelight from the “great leader” in China. During the last Cultural Revolution, the slogan then was breaking the four “olds” – old thinking, old culture, old practices, old habits. The revolution ended up with numerous books being burned and ancient artifacts and buildings being ruined.

The current cultural revolution is based on the four confidence – confidence in Chinese socialism, confidence in reasoning, confidence in the system and confidence in culture. It remains to be seen what ends up being destroyed.
