Xi – A man sees red

By Johnny Erling

Red wedding dresses, red envelopes for Chinese New Year, red lanterns. The warm color is omnipresent in the People's Republic – even in politics. In socialist countries, people are used to the symbolic color. President Xi Jinping, however, is now applying a particularly thick coat of red paint.

The People's Republic of China, like other socialist states, has become accustomed to the symbolic color red (红色), but party leader Xi Jinping now wants to apply the revolutionary paint for his party and society with an even thicker coat and newfound vigor. Only if the youth grows up with "red genes" would China "never change its color." Shortly before the CC plenum meeting in Beijing at the end of November, the last major party conference to set the course for the upcoming election party congress next autumn, Xi is bringing the party, the nation, and its people into ideological line. At the same time, he is making China back-pedal in terms of the market economy. The party leader is doing everything he can to extend his ten-year rule over China in 2022. The entire country must become even redder: "We'll start with the babies."
