Kina lovbefæster historieforfalskning

Filed under: Politik — Hodja @ 23:16

POLITICIANS introduced amendments to China’s nascent civil code to make defaming “heroes and martyrs” of the ruling Communist Party a civil offence, as the leadership moves to strengthen its grasp on the history of the People’s Republic.

Academics who offer different interpretations of history which downplay the role of the Party and its heroes are labelled “historical nihilists”.

Chinese president Xi Jinping has emphasised the need for the party to have faith in its own version of history, pointing to the Soviet Union’s collapse as a warning to cadres about what happens if revolutionary leaders are denounced.

The Party warned last year that a flood of online information is causing people to doubt the party and urged that the party do more to rebut “wrong” points of view.
