It’s an interesting time in China. The Chinese Communist Party (CPC) is celebrating its 90th anniversary. On the one hand, the country is witnessing ever-rising demands for basic freedoms that are taken for granted in many countries. On the other hand, the CPC is increasingly the bearer of nationalist feelings. One example of the latter trend is Bo Xilai, the party chief in the city of Chongqing whose “red” songs are clearly meant to rouse patriotism, a very different political idea. There are no prizes for guessing which way the CPC is headed.
