稳腚 (wěn dìng): stable bottommaintain stability,” the rationale under which political dissidents are controlled and the media is censored.
Netizens joke that China’s leaders’ obsession with “social stability” is a just a pretext for insuring the stability of their “bottoms” on the thrones of power. “When the officials’ bottoms are stable,” goes a popular web saying, “society is not stable. When the officials’ bottoms are not stable, then society is stable!” (官员稳腚了，社会就不稳定了；官员不稳腚了，社会就稳定了！)
