Strange Sign, Surprising Result

Xiamen University students recently made a survey at a cross road near the university campus, a section where a pedestrian walking bridge was built over a busy intersection.

The test was to see how people reacted towards different types of notice board. They designed 3 notice boards with different content,  displaying them in turn for few days, and in between there would be some days with no notice board at all.


The results below show how many people still crossed the road, not choosing to use the walking bridge despite the signs:


No notice board 69.78%
"Please use walking bridge" 70.02%
"It only takes 9.4 seconds more to use the walking bridge" 60.97%
"You ugly if you cross the road" 41.12%


Sun Yat-sen Back For China's Future? PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

On 27th April, a large picture of Sun Yat-sen was erected in Tiananmen Square, 3 days before the communist labour day holiday, 1st of May.

This could be one of the most defining events in communist China since 1949, when Mao took control of China.

Sun Yat-sen was the founder of democratic China in 1911, the Republic Of China, and was the first elected president of China. Sun's efforts to promote democracy in China remain in the hearts of Chinese people.

The formation of the Republic of China in the early 20th century, inspired many young Chinese to seek new ideas to help China prosper, but unfortunately, many hot headed youths ended up worshiping communism, a cult which promised a fantasy of egalitarianism, but was based on violence, lies and power struggles.

When the former police chief of Chongqing, Wang Lijun (who ran for his life into the American consulate) fell out with Bo Xilai in Feb 2012, the secret coup plan orchestrated by Jiang Zemin, Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai and their faction, was disclosed by Wang.

The coup of Jiang and Zhou was to replace Xi Jinping with Bo Xilai, by using either assassination or scandals. Jiang and Zhou still organized coup attempts even after Bo Xilai was arrested. Zeng Qinghong, the former zsar of the Chinese security forces was also heavily involved in these plans. There is information from Beijing insiders, close to the top communist leaders, that the Kunming mass killings, Guangzhou bus explosions, etc. were all organized by Jiang and Zeng's faction, in order to create chaos under Xi Jinping's leadership; to distract attention, and to prepare another, maybe more deadly chaos. It is quite clear that Jiang's faction believes that the only way for them to have chance to regain control in China is to create more chaos, to blackmail, including killing people.

The situation in China for Xi Jinping and his leadership group is extremely serious, with endemic corruption amongst communist officials, and the battle to arrest top controllers, like Bo Xilai, and Zhou Yongkang, is certainly not an easy process.

How will Xi Jinping lead China forward?

The erection of Sun's picture in Tiananmen Square is certainly eye opening in this totalitarian state.

With the help of internet software to circumvent the Great Firewall of China to obtain the news, many Chinese are quite clear about the struggles the new leader, Xi Jinping and his supporters are facing. Some Chinese were interviewed in front of Sun's picture:

"I don't think it is a small change in Tiananmen Square, Xi Jinping is taking the lead position, things seem quite different to before, things are being dealt with very differently...."

"Well, it is certainly a good thing, what can I say.....the steps can be larger, and change can be made bigger ....but just (Mr Xi) needs to hold on against resistance...."

"Xi, you need to hold on, don't be afraid, if you do the right thing, we citizens will support you."
