“In August, dictator Xi Jinping announced the launch of the “Clean Plate” campaign, accusing Chinese citizens of “shocking and distressing” food waste that the Communist Party would soon end. The campaign banned the controversial videos of people eating large feasts on their own and required catering companies to use technology to regulate exactly how much food people eat at private events, banning them from selling more food than the government’s preferred amount for any group of people to eat. The legislation that resulted from the campaign also required restaurants to cover their establishments in government propaganda browbeating patrons not to order too much food.”
The Oligarchs that run China have indeed made the country richer and a world force, but the reality is that perhaps Xi and the Communist Chinese Party today is not really that different from Mao and his Great Leap Forward. 80 million Chinese have not yet been starved to death under Xi but those days may be coming.
Imagine going into your favorite restaurant to celebrate your birthday with your best friends and the Chef comes out and scolds you for ordering that extra Cannoli. What? In the old America, Chefs would want you to buy more, eat more. Manja! Manja! No more Cannoli and you can forget about the Zabaione for dessert as well.
Let’s face it, the Oligarchs who control things won’t have those restrictions, but if you are a serf in the new America or up and coming “middle class” member of the Communist Chinese regime, you can forget about enjoying a feast. Clean your plate first Prole! Like during the Great Leap Forward, the Party has not been good stewards of the farm land. No incentive for farmers to do the right thing. The Party was too busy screwing the world over with Covid and causing death and economic destruction. China’s farm land has once again been polluted and is nearly unusable. They can’t grow enough corn to feed the pigs – the Chinese favorite meat. China even has to import most of their corn from America, rather than Ukraine. It turns out Ukraine is tougher on China than America. But you won’t know any of this, because China and the Media Oligarchs in America have done their best to censor this information. China will continue to bombard its people with propaganda to “clean your plate”! Don’t waste food! I wonder how long before we start seeing this kind of propaganda in America? Of course, this sort of tyranny led by tech oligarchs couldn’t happen here, right? Did you know that Tech Tyrant Bill Gates is the largest owner of farm land in America? Hmmm. How did that happen? Manja! Manja!…while you can!
