Is this a recent SARFT mandate? I don't recall these being issues, though knowing how heavy-handed the Ministry of Culture is, I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it works nowadays.More recently, the fact that Chinese movies have many themes they aren't even allowed to develop or show possible narratives that are vaguely related to the government or government policsy such as independent heroes, or forbidden romance being successful etc... Unless it's killing Japanese people then they love showing it from the TV I watched there
A lot of Chinese people don't trust the safety standards of their own products. That's why Hong Kong is a popular tourist destination, and why items like baby formula are some of the most popular tourist purchases. I suspect that the overall quality is getting better, but everyone knows that the current systems are corrupt.I mean, how prevalent is this stuff actually? Yet you hear it repeated over and over in threads related to China. If you only hear the most negative stories reported out of a country on repeat, its not surprising that china is viewed negatively. It's boarderline propaganda in essence.
