Still Working to Survive at Age 101 in Communist China

Madam Tan Xiaozheng (pictured above) lived in Guizhou for more than 50 years but never got her residents permit, so she is not entitled to receive a pension or any support form the government. She has had to support herself all her life and is still doing so at age 101. (screenshot).

The regime has always promised to look after the elderly.

In 1985, Newspapers and local cadres were told to promote this:

On red banner: Family planning (one child policy) is good, Government will look after the elderly. (screenshot)

In the 90's, On red banners: Family planning (One child policy) is good, Government is helping the elderly. (screenshot)

In 2000, on red banner: The elderly cannot completely rely on government to look after them. (screenshot)

 

In 2012, On Red banners: Delaying retirement is good, support yourself in your old age. (screenshot)

In 2013, Words in gold: Living off your mortgage, enjoy your future life.

The above are newspaper articles (propaganda) from 1985, 1995, 2005 and 2012 with the same slogan as the above banners.

The communist regime had tried to allay fears that the one child policy would lead to very few family members to look after the elderly, by promising that the government would do so.

Now many elderly people have no family to look after them and have been abandoned by the communist regime.

On Nov 14th, Gambia cut diplomatic ties with Taiwan.  On 15th Nov. the communist mouth piece, China Daily, quoted the spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, Mr. Hong Lei declaring (in the screenshot above): China (Chinese regime) has acquired news (Gambia cutting diplomatic ties with Taiwan) from foreign media. China did not contact Gambia before Gambia’s decision.

Chinese bloggers found this statement extremely amusing, as it corresponds to the classic Chinese folk story:

A man named Zhang San earned 300 taels of silver from hard work and he was happy and tried to hide his silver. He thought carefully and buried his silver at the back of his house. Still unable to put his mind at ease, he placed a sign above which read, “There are no three hundred taels of silver buried here.” His neighbour, Wang Er saw what Zhang did and later at night, he dug up the silver and put another sign there: “Neighbour Wang Er didn't steal the silver.”
