"Giving Free Rein to One's Party Nature." (Artist: Guaiguai 乖乖)

To act in the interest of the Chinese Communist Party, implying unethical, selfish behavior. Play on the idiom "give free rein to one's animal nature" (shòuxìng dàfā 兽性大发).

The Party nature of a government official is said to be expressed through forced demolition and other public cruelties. Anyone can express their Party nature by writing paeans to the CCP or breaking into revolutionary song:

GaojiapingRenpoqie (@高家坪仁波切): While I was walking down the street I gave free rein to my Party nature and wrote this song, and now I can't stop singing it. How do I stop?


Oh, great CCP

How I like thee

You'll stay in my heart

No matter what they say

All the rights I enjoy

Are because you serve the people

I worship thee

Marx, Lenin, Mao, Deng, Jiang, Hu, and Xi

No one else will do

You're in my body

You're in my brain

I'll never be selfish again

no way
