China's New Life Movement
The New Life Movement was a government led social movement in China, starting before the civil war and continuing in measures through the mid 1940s. They may not have originally been intended as humorous, these illustrations supporting the Movement, but I must laugh my ass off after knowing the current state of manners in the People's Republic of China. Standing in line is a contact sport. Busy restaurants are ear splittingly loud and raucous. Two people on a sidewalk can make a crowd. And if you use a crosswalk, be careful, because you can never be sure the drivers will yield. All of the issues that arose before the 2008 Olympics still exist. Hey wumao, quit bugging me about this post and instead GTFO and restart the The New Life Movement!
