维稳 (wéiwěn) maintain stability

Hand-in-hand with Hu Jintao's policy to promote "a harmonious society" has been an increasing focus on "maintaining stability." According to the New York Times, the amount officially spent on maintaining social stability was $111 billion, $5 billion more than the military budget.

Netizens have also begun using the term in humorous ways. For example:

"Chinese people are good at acrobatics because the the essential part of acrobatics is being able to maintain stability."

中国人擅长杂技,因为杂技的核心就两个字:维稳

In 1998, when the Titanic was first shown in the mainland, the scene where Rose, naked, allowed Jack to sketch her was kept in. However, in 2012 when the movie was shown, why was that scene deleted? Finally the The State Administration of Radio Film and Television of China has given us an explanation: "Considering the unique aspects of 3-D movies, we were concerned that when the movie is shown that members of the audience would try to reach out and touch, which would result in unnecessary disputes with those seated in front of them. Given our concerns about maintaining stability, we have decided to delete this scene.

1998年大陆上映的【泰坦尼克号】保留了Rose裸身让Jack作画的情节,而2012年上映时为何被删除?近日广电总局终于对此给出了解释:“考虑到3D电影的特殊性,总局担心,播放该片段时可能出现观众试图伸手触摸而打到前排观众的头,造成不必要的纠纷。出于维稳考虑,决定删除此片段。
