A story banned in China.
A time when communism roars.
A room where a commander’s wife and a soldier are trapped...
With an ubiquitous crowd.
WHO ARE THEY?
It’s you that you’re fighting against.
Serve the People focus on language oppression and self-censorship. Language constitutes our knowledge, our way-of thinking, and our identity. It tells us what is right and what is wrong. It’s our super-ego. Language orders us what to do. It’s our mind commander.
But what if the language itself is wrong? What if it tells us to do something we don’t want? Do we fool ourselves into believing it or do we fight against it? Maybe the answer isn’t that easy. It’s you that you’re fighting against.
Come and enjoy NEW ORIENTAL AESTHETICS!
