Totally going out of their minds now:

"...the latest guidance on television programming from the State Administration of Radio Film and Television in China borders on the surreal – or, rather, an attack against the surreal.

New guidelines issued on March 31 discourages plot lines that contain elements of "fantasy, time-travel, random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques, even propagating feudal superstitions, fatalism and reincarnation, ambiguous moral lessons, and a lack of positive thinking."

"The government says … TV dramas shouldn’t have characters that travel back in time and rewrite history. They say this goes against Chinese heritage,” reports CNN’s Eunice Yoon. “They also say that myth, superstitions and reincarnation are all questionable.”

I guess GLP is banned there now for good huh? : (

I agree 100%, but I think it would just end up as a total massacre.

Good, because most of the imbeciles talking about such things are jackasses and they pollute viewer's minds with absolute nonsense.

I am curious to know, that if CERN/LHC does in fact discover time-travel, which they admit is POSSIBLE, would China ban reality also?

It's too bad. They had a rich mythological tradition before the Maoists erased it (inside of the PRC).

I thought that was the case since I am a fan of mythology, so I didn't expect something this far. I don't really know anything about Chinese politics and did not know that was what happened. What a shame.

As a budding screen writer, I am going to write a plot where Chairman Mao gets two in the head before the communist revolution begins.

chinese authorities discovered how much of that shit is real, and they don't want to confuse the fuck out of the citizen, by those who know shit.

they know disclosure is around the corner, so people will learn how it really is, so it's best not to confuse them now.

meanwhile in the western world.. the propaganda psyop mind control machine has become self aware.
