Call it the progress


from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

The Guardian, The Washington Post, Australian Broadcasting Commission etc certainly would or perhaps already did. In March this year the Chinese politburo announced a great plan to advance the urbanisation of China. Since 1980 the population of Chinese cities increased only by about 500 million people, so far without any plan or the Party’s approval. Mao must be turning in his grave.

china.politburoAs the admirers of communist systems know or ought to know, China operates on the residential permit system. USSR had one; some time prior to the October revolution it was know as serfdom. The Chinese one is called hukou. A resident, (none would dare to call him or her a citizen), once registered in a certain place, needs an apparatchik permission to register elsewhere. The system, undoubtedly, to warm the hearts, if any, of the Greens and other totalitarians in our midst.

The system softened somewhat; an offender is unlikely to be jailed or deported back to his village, but without hukou his/her access to the government services, such as education or health is severely limited. So now the progress – by 2020 100 million migrants are to be able to receive urban hukou; leaving, by 2020, 300 million? 500 million? without access to medical services.

Another victory for the socialist version of progress.


About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
