Chinese Communist Party Megathread - Cold War 2: Electric Boogaloo

Today marks the anniversary of the political turmoil between the spring and summer of 1989, when some counterrevolutionaries in Beijing got a little too rowdy and had to be re-convinced of the benefits in socialism with Chinese characteristics. Anyway, did you know that job policies in Xinjiang put people first?
As long as your read the fine print in the contract. But the CCP have other tricks in mind. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/chinas-belt-and-road-being-built-forced-labor
Authored by Judith Bergman via The Gatestone Institute,

"The entire Belt and Road initiative is based on forced labor," according to Li Qiang, director of China Labor Watch.
"Chinese authorities want the Belt and Road projects for political gain and need to use these workers."
A new report, "Silent Victims of Labor Trafficking: China's Belt and Road workers stranded overseas amid Covid-19 pandemic" by China Labor Watch, published on April 30, details the conditions of some of those overseas Chinese workers, who are building China's Belt and Road infrastructure projects across the world. China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) forms a crucial part of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) foreign policy and is a key tool in China's ambition to become a global superpower.

China Labor Watch spoke to approximately 100 Chinese BRI workers in Indonesia, Algeria, Singapore, Jordan, Pakistan and Serbia. Many shared similar stories. According to the report:

"They were promised a job with good pay to support their families back in China. Upon arriving in the host countries, however, Chinese employers confiscated their passports, and told them that if they wanted to leave early, they had to pay a penalty for breach of contract, which is often equivalent to several months' worth of their salary."
China Labor Watch found that most of the indicators of forced labor in the definition used by the International Labour Organization (ILO) were present concerning the Chinese workers they interviewed.

Almost all the workers had been deceptively recruited with promises of certain wages and legal work visas. Instead, their passports were confiscated right after they disembarked the plane, leaving them unable to leave unless they paid a heavy fine to the Chinese employer. They received no legal work permits, making them illegal workers. They were locked up in poor living and working conditions on the work premises, which were guarded by security guards. If they wanted to leave the premises, they needed permission from the guards. They suffered excessive work hours of up to 12 hours a day, 7 days a week with no holiday allowance and insufficient labor protection and safety equipment. Many workers were injured during work with no access to medical treatment, leading some to permanent disability. After a worker from a Chinese mining company in Indonesia was diagnosed positive for Covid-19 in November 2020, he was put in isolation in an empty dormitory room for more than 20 days without any medical treatment. Later other workers found his dead body. According to the report:

"We have found that in some Chinese steel and mining companies, workers are frequently detained and beaten by the company's security guards due to disobedience, attempting to strike, or other disputes with management. In a WeChat group of Chinese steel workers in Indonesia, someone posted a video of a worker being repeatedly reprimanded and slapped until the uniform was covered with blood from his nose. Then other members of the group commented that a factory's translator was the one who beat them.
"Intimidation and threats are common for controlling Chinese workers in forced labor at some BRI projects. The most commonly used threats include deportation, reprisal after returning home, high fines and penalties. It is also common to force workers to sign a waiver of rights to sue the employer and to force workers to delete evidence of labor rights violations on their phones."
Most workers received "late payments... and unexplained deductions."

"A worker who went to Jordan worked in the desert for five months but only received his salary for the first six days. In Algeria, when an installation project of a subcontracting company was close to completion in 2019 two workers were left behind for maintenance and installation. They could not refuse the arrangement because their employer threatened them with six months of salary that had not yet been paid."
No surprise then Kapernick and LeBron will close their eyes on this.

I think my favorite thing about Communism is that its typical top-down command structure is naturally feedback-phobic & thereby prone to causing its own breakage by creating solutions to non-problems which cause bigger problems which require solutions that cause even more problems to occur.

The classic example:

>Birds too noisy?
>Kill them all

>Bugs eating crops?
>People starving
>Biggest famine in history

>Fucking millions die
>More dead people than any holocaust, gulag or nuclear strike

>HOLYSHITSTOPKILLINGBIRDS

The modern example:

>China is embarrassed of being blue collar
>Mandate a culture that promotes white collar vocations
>Mandate that only bachelor's degree can get you government employment

>Country losing steam as world's factory
>Merge previously unwanted blue collar degrees with bachelor's degrees
>Make all bachelor's degrees just expensive blue collar degrees

>Students protest that they were just fucked out of promising gov careers
>Send Chinese knock-off Wolf Brigade to beat students to a pulp & threaten their families

>ThisIsFine.jpg

Other modern example:

>One child policy
>Forced sterilization
>Murder female babies

>Devastated replacement demographics
>Country losing workforce steam

>THREE KID POLICY! THREE KID POLICY!!!

"China plans whole generations ahead" ~a retard

The system can't fix problems if it disables bug reports. The system doesn't want to know there's problems. Ergo, the system can't fix problems, until the problem & the subsequent consequences are so profound they can't be denied, followed by panicked overcorrection that just creates even more problems.

China is retarded. I am not even the slightest bit intimidated by them.

If they nuke anybody it will be themselves, on accident, & they'll do the stupid thing of trying to hide it rather than doing the cunning thing of calling it a Western attack.

Just a small correct, but the birds weren't killed because they were too noisy. They were killed because it was incorrectly thought that they were primary reason crops were failing because they were eating the seeds, and grain, and stuff.

I forgot about that, I remembered differently it as being because Mao Zedong just found them annoying.

Are you saying the CCP is the Bethesda of governments? And Xi Jinping is Todd Howard?
