Beijing has been busy preparing for its once in a decade leadership transition. We’ve already seen some of the absurd security measures being taken.
But Beijing’s propaganda machine is also in overdrive. Officials have set up a giant electronic screen in Tiananmen Square that has been showing propaganda videos. On display in Beijing, is also an exhibition titled ‘Scientific Development and Splendid Achievements’ before the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party kicks off on November 8. The exhibit acts as a reminder of the country’s political, economic, cultural, and ecological progress in the past decade.
