Beijing Asks Chinese People to Promote Communist Ideology

On Tuesday September 10, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), the country’s top Internet regulator, issued a draft version of the “Cyber Ecological Governance Regulations.”  The document listed 20 categories of contents that are “prohibited ” or “not allowed,” but for the first time, the authorities explicitly encouraged seven types of information to be circulated in cyberspace.

The seven areas include propagating Xi Jinping’s thoughts; propagating the party’s theories, principles, policies, and major decisions, and the highlights of China’s economic and social development; promoting socialist values; guiding consensus among the Chinese people on certain social issues; improving the international influence of the Chinese culture, and promoting stability.

CAC stated that the main purpose of the regulations is to control the contents of the cyber information of the government, enterprises, society and netizens, and to strengthen positive energy and punish illegal information.
