Be Forbearing And There Will Be Harmony

A sarcastic look out how Chinese officialdom is going about creating a harmonious . From the New Observer (新观察) blog (translated by ):

China Railway No. 11 Group Company reminds you to:
Wait a bit and you’ll be safe, yield first and you’ll soon go past, be forbearing and there will be harmony.

sounds so good, after all what is there that we can’t bear? All this time — these past few decades. Even though things are getting more and more unscrupulous, we just have to remain patient and there will be harmony.

You just need to wait a bit and let the leaders walk ahead first.

You just need to yield and let the leaders pass by first.

You just need to be forbearing and let the leaders rise up first.

I almost wonder if this is a slogan invented by xxx’s [Hu Jintao’s] secretary.

Be forbearing and there will be harmony.

It should be the quote of the year!

If Yang Jia had seen this he wouldn’t have ended up dead. Let’s all be patient together! Even if we get constipated, we’ll endure it.

Masses, just lay low and play dumb and society will be harmonious!
