Beijing - Residents are overturning lockdown policies by protesting - many communities in the capital previously in lockdown are now open again as protests are taking place, leading to more protesting and dissatisfaction from other communities still in lockdown.

Video in mandarin Chinese, but general gist is this local district is enacting its own covid policies based on the central government's own legal clauses. Hopefully someone more fluent in Chinese and knowledgable on China's new 二十条 九不准 "20-clauses and 9-restrictions" can also chime in on whats going on?

观点文章 | Opinion Piece Historical trends regarding uprisings and the fate of the ccp

Upvotes

Historically, the average dynasty would last around 250 years. When the people are dissatisfied, there would be uprisings. The government would succeed in brutally suppressing the uprisings. There would then be a period of peace. But the uprisings would never stop. More future uprisings would emerge.

The uprisings are like the heads of a hydra. Every time you cut off one head, two would emerge until eventually there are hundreds of uprisings happening simultaneously all over china. This eventually always leads to two outcomes. Either members of the military/government start breaking off, consolidates their own regional hold on power, and become warlords or members of the military start joining the rebels. This has happened in every chinese dynasty.

Some famous examples are when the rebels besieged the capital during the end of the ming dynasty and the imperial troops abandoned their post because they haven't been paid in months and the last emperor committed suicide or during the end of the qing dynasty when a list of soldiers who were planning to mutiny were discovered and instead of executing them, the general simply dismissed them because of his own affections for his soldiers. Those soldiers ended up joining the rebels.

Time is not on the ccp's side. I wonder what color turban will be fashionable in the recent uprisings? I'm am also wondering if there are powerful anti-xi factions within the ccp who are supporting the uprisings and trying to use it for their own political gain?
