China's false debate on values

It may be true that China is heading in a positive and encouraging direction but the the use of the term 'Chinese values' to shut down debate and deflect criticism is absurd.

At the end of last week, China’s Minister of Education Yuan Guiren told a conference on ideological and propaganda work in higher education that it was necessary to “strengthen control over the use of original edition Western materials [i.e. materials not approved and processed by government censorship entities]”.

He continued that 'Western values' will never be allowed in the country’s classrooms and lecture halls and that “any views that attack to defame the leadership of the Party or smear socialism must never be allowed to appear in our universities”.
