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,” the saying goes, “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！)
