okay, those. the headlines coming up next inside stories they with us news news, news. news. news is a new cultural revolution taking place in china. the government is cracked and technology companies, education and payment, and even how long children he's been playing video games with all about this isn't like ah, ah, walk into the program. i mean, ron kon, during the past few months, china has tightened regulations and rules across many areas of society. technology,
2:34 pm
firms, education media, few sectors have been sped. the decisions have been sudden dramatic and even baffling. to some observers, the entertainment industry is the latest target regulators. a band tv telling chosen audit broadcast is not to promote what they call a feminist looking men act as accused of tax evasion. i misbehavior about. 2 the work taken offline, the government is also crackdown on video games. children are only allowed to play up to 3 hours a week and only on weekends. the goal is to stop young people being influenced by so called negative and immoral behavior. i don't think the new regulation makes any sense, although it aims to help teenagers. however, the less accessed you get, the more curious you'll be considered here with that on and then what different people have different levels of self control. and they might have different kinds of supervision from parents in care is. this is not something they can simply
2:35 pm
control. people in the in can always play on another account by a counsel metal. the sweeping measures of also targeted take times 10 said and he's been off to eliminate content that promotes what are described as incorrect values, like money worship. and chinese regulators voted the removal of ride sharing company did each using from domestic app stores. it's been accused of illegally collecting and using personal information, and they've also banned the multi 1000000000 dollar private tutoring sector from making profit or raising capital. some celebrity fund club website's been barred for regulators call, kale thick, find culture, and the government is promoting president. seizing pings and political ideology through its education system, children as young as 10, hard to attend the special classes state media says the aim is to cultivate a love for the country, the communist party and socialism. ah, let's bring it,
2:36 pm
i guess, anti pe, william young e stage a correspondent, c d w news. i'm president of the taiwan foreign correspondent, club in london shining lou rita in modern chinese culture and language at of the so as the sd of london. and in new york, and it's augment writer and co host of the china tech investor podcasts. welcome to the program, and let's begin in london's 1st with shouting lou shouting, is this the 2nd cultural revolution by increment by stealth? oh, that's pretty interesting mastering, but i'm afraid i was saying no, but i do see our brief ation of a socialist, the culture in terms of how the parking manage the culture, for instance, they are the low tradition that a culture has been used an instrument to shape people's opinions to most the ideal citizens. a recently we see chinese party of chinese government really put
2:37 pm
a lot of effort to rectify this local, the so called and determined circle online funding online and culture. and it's even impose a limit on the online video game in type a william young. this seems to be aimed at no cracking down on current descent. but actually trying to avoid futures and everything they're doing. it seems that very young people, children and it seems to be aiming to foster a sense of love for socialism. stay and for the chinese communist party. would you agree? yeah, i think the previous upper seeker has already touched on the very important point which is that there revitalizing the very essence of the socialist spirit, especially the socialist spirit in the chinese communist parties, stander and its definition. and one of the very important thing that we see in all of these crackdowns on different sectors is that they are preventing trying to
2:38 pm
prevent any force, be it company, be at tech, tie, kern beard, a pop coke coach. her icon to actually become be able to mobilize a large swath of a social circle and a society. so which is why they are trying to dissolve all these online fin groups . because some of these groups have already shown, kate finds that they are able to mobilize and be able to create some of the things that are considered as out of control in the government the under. and i would actually say that these like standards can all be applied to different sectors. we see the crackdown on major tech companies. and also we see the limit on the ability for the younger generation in china to be able to actually spend too much time on things that are considered as a chaos or a distraction of for the younger generation in china. but let's go to new york now
2:39 pm
in elliot, and let's just talk business for a 2nd here. if you're cracking down or at least putting in some laws about screentime, for example, about access to pop stars, access to money culture, and your us record executive. and you're going, john is a huge market to me. but if they've trying to get rid of all of this, then it becomes less appealing for me to invest in from a business point of view. china is actually doing something counter productive, is not, i guess, to get a little bit that way. i don't think she's paying looks at it that way, but what we're definitely seeing is a de prioritization of or, and capital. so for much of the past 30 years, we've seen them really prioritize attracting foreign capital to china. i think that at this point she didn't thing doesn't think that that the most important thing for china right now. and i think a really good example of this not just with tech regulation, but just recently the black some group have been trying to acquire the property
2:40 pm
developer soho and the black, some group, and stephen sportsmen. they had very, very good relationship with the chinese communist party and they had funded a massive, massive program as to why university, which is the intellectual home of the party and are sorry, black rock black. but they have not been able to secure this deal. it was denied by regulators and what i think aging is saying to support investors right now in that you know, if you want to come here and make money, you can but we're not going to cater to you the way that we used to selling lou and london, there's a real rest care that simply because this is china as the chinese companies policy, the doing it the automatically everybody is going to go. this is authoritarian, this is bad, but i'm a parent, i worry about screen time and how much my children spend on the laptops and i pads and things like that. i worry about the impact of culture. is this
2:41 pm
a very chinese way of doing it? simply what the west is doing and other ways, but just because there's a centralized culture, this is the only way china can do it. i'm glad you asked me the question. i'd like to say the small being in fact a partially, if the ccp in response to people, demands in the traditional chinese culture. that's such saying except for the indulgence of plain steps, ambition, this is why the parents are worrying about their children. sometimes i'm really concerned about of screentime. of course, you know, you have to write the opinion about the government recent measure. but sometimes i'm really happy that the government has taken this measure to been children screentime. why offers boys that they are down and their reservation. because it's going to be effective, you know, i, i think may be, maybe this,
2:42 pm
this is an immediate solution, but it's not going to be a long term effective solution. avoidance times the children may move opportunities of self exploration and being stuck discipline in cetera. and another thing is i'd like to say these measure are taken by the government manifesto, the folk leave the governments because it just simply use the single master to implement the single math or you know, across the board across the country, across all kinds of video games. by the way, these times they restrict the time, oh, online video game of but not on the video games, but yet there might be other solutions for you as you come across the part different countries ego games because we all know some video games. games are educational, right, educational. so i think the government may be
2:43 pm
a bit of too lazy time to think about how to really effectively tackle if they have this problem. if they really, if they're really concerned about the spiritual, you know, the house, the healthy citizens now enjoy pay william young. it's not just video games. it's not just screens. i was those d v d that cracking down on actors that they, that the chinese communist party don't see as follow in their ideals were reflectively asking to do is all your cultural icons in china who are chinese to follow a certain model of behavior set and mode of behavior that isn't bigger than the, the communist party, but isn't, but it's in line with communist party families. you effectively imposing culture on cultural actors and for cultures are really tree, breathed and needs to be free. right? right. i think there is, there are 2 sides to argue against this. one site is just exactly like what you
2:44 pm
said. one of the reason why they are emphasizing the banning on the particular assist the man for example, man who are not looking or behaving like the traditionally very masculine way is because they are very concerned about the if the, the impact of the korean pop poacher and a lot of these are k popstars have created these barre, sometimes so called out of control of phantom culture and phantom phenomenon online and they do see some destruction. for example, for in a very small period of time, their fan online fans will be able to accumulate and gather a large amount of money to do something that are viewed as very out of control by the government. and so in order for the government to be able to actually like make sure that everything is in line with their ideals, they put up a very strict guideline and also in post them in
2:45 pm
a very strict way. and we see that most of the entertainment providers, the social media platforms are, has already stopped wrenching the like pop stars, which is used to be very, very popular on away for, for example. and then they have also a band all these kind of like a very competitive culture and wasteful culture inside these like talent shows. because actually these measures are having a lot of support from the chinese medicines and chinese citizens because they, a lot of the normal citizens do actually see some very toxic effect of these extreme behavior and extreme reaction to the rise of the k pop culture. and so, but i think rather than the foreign companies and flooring like entertainment providers or worrying the were those who have more concerns are actually the domestic providers and domestic entertainment producers. because they won't know
2:46 pm
when the like rules will be tightened again. or when the government will decide to impose additional measures to actually make their life and the space for them to operate, even hotter and smaller. so i think the unpredictability of the whole thing is actually having more effect on the domestic providers rather than 4 in providers. that is, when we make some very interesting point, disney is like, hey, we are, we have this international audience, and then we have this domestic audience as well. the international audience for like hollywood films, for example. no time to die. the new james, one film, had just passed the chinese sensor. it's got access now to the largest market in the world. it's going to make a lot of money. james bond is not a socialist, he's no a character. the is embody socialist values in any way, shape or form. you think that aston martin is driving isn't social. but what i'm saying is that actually that seems to be hypocrisy here. the chinese are like our
2:47 pm
celebrities. alliston needs to behave to communist party values. yeah. however, we don't mind hollywood films being played at the cinema, but we are worried about bts and k pop values and the razor of that kind of culture . how much of that is to do with just simple money, like hollywood knows access to that market. i think a lot of it is about money and is about maybe the existing relationship that hollywood has with aging. and with china, with china regulator, but a year or 2 from now, we may see that another james bond movie won't be able to get in. i think of that very much possibility, but i think another way to look at it when it comes to the kind of what says the ma'am saying check the cracking down and some of these sort of more feminine celebrities. i think that the one thing that shouldn't be overlooked here is china demographic problem. and one of the reasons why i feel like really needs to control
2:48 pm
the culture is because they need people to have more children. the census data recently came out, i think in the spring of this year, and it was far worse and they even expected. and i think that right now babies, regulators are panicking, and policymakers are panicking a little bit about this sort of long term demographic crisis that they're facing. and whatever they can do to try to do some more, more baby making that they're going to do. and it needs to be honest, traditional masculinity gets married and right and more if you're more a feminist or something like that, maybe that's not what you want your life. and i think that's also how they interpret this. we should be aware of say, think generalizations, but i will let you get away with the sounding lou in london. what we're talking about right now then, and it seems to me that all 3 of you said effectively the same thing. this isn't a new cultural revolution. this is a reshaping reformulate formulas ation of chinese values. chinese customs
2:49 pm
is this fair for an ongoing project to all of you at some point and mention this is what's happening right now, but it might not be what's going to be happening in the future. i would have think this is the ongoing part of the ongoing process. as i said, the importance of the socialist culture. maybe the parking nowadays do not use the id on to anymore. but if we look at the shooting 2014 talks at the paging for our basic her art on the, he's specifically used to terms the good, the, the true, the, the, to the good, the beautiful. that the 3 thing as the essential values that of when you to advocates and so from the government perspective, for the public figures or we cause the never a tease, you know, the inferential public a figures, they have a rate her social obligations to,
2:50 pm
to fit samples for the moral direction of the society, i think this is fund a mental difference going to difference between the socialist culture and the so called a western or a culture. or, you know, the celebrities. they are important not only because they produce excellent worth and, and to turning, you know, movies and tv shows, but out the party that government has expectation of them as a person to, to they should have a coach, the more it tech ricky. so whoever books i'm who has some transgressive ass, however you define, you know, whether it's evasion, it's kind of banned us, or other things may, may be deemed as problematic. so that's my answer is a lot of the us government has spent a long time accusing china. monotheistic practices of dominating markets, of using it's money to dominate foreign foreign policy in africa in south asia.
2:51 pm
and it's often complained that china has been too big to influence directly. all things like this cracked alman, a weapon for the u. s. government uses say actually what the chinese are doing is violation of human rights. and therefore, this is something we can use to try and put pressure on them. or once again, is trying to just simply too big to put any pressure on. yeah, i think it's kind of a ladder. i mean, the us can say all that they want and i believe that cracked down on human rights. this is not something that i know that make me less likely to want to live in china, i guess. but i mean the u. s. and say all that it wants and it does, it is effective. you know, if you look at some of the sanctions been able to levy, i think it definitely has put pressure on. i'm fine and it's officials. but when it comes down to what i can get this point, china doesn't really care like china is going to do, which i don't want and they're big enough. and i think she's jumping as
2:52 pm
a political will. and a political enough validation and power to be able to make it happen. and i think that that's generally where they're at right now. we mean, a lot of the activists that you speak to a lot of the people you speech in your course in your daily course of journalism must be very concerns. the china simply is getting away with whatever at once. and grandpa, she is actually basically just doing whatever he wants to do is that a concern for them that the voice is radical. voices dissenting voices are just becoming lost right. i think this is already a fact that we are seeing over the last few years, especially i think, after even hong kong becomes one of the biggest target for the crackdown and the extreme level of the measures that china is willing to impose on hong kong, bypassing all the existing system that are supposed to exist under the one country
2:53 pm
to system. i think those who are inside china who have been experiencing this kind of very heavy handed treatment since the, i think the early ninety's and all the way until she jenkins ride in 2012. busy they are basically very pessimistic about how the outside world has any sort of influence in leverage to actually i think lester some of the life i think, struggle that they are facing. we are seeing a lot of the different kinds of, like, unjust is being imposed by like i think the legal system is very vague about when to detain someone and then someone can beat the tank for years before they actually finally have a sentence. and a few months after they were properly sent and they were released because they've already been jailed for years before they were actually able to have a proper trial. and a lot of these trials are actually happened behind closed doors. we're actually
2:54 pm
also seen this happening to flooring citizens, including the 2 canadians and the australian journalists can lay. so i think right now the, the question, the big question will be, how the international community decides to deal with china while upholding their ideals and also their values. because it seems like if they cannot hold up a very united front against china and find a very effective way to counter china, aggression and ambition, then things like the detention of the indians when we already got time. and i would like to bring shouting, lee lou here in london. channing, a similar question to you. is this about reshaping the cultural values of china or is it simply just a cracking down on future descent or is that mixture both? i think the reshaping the culture rather as a place,
2:55 pm
a bigger part because we do have to strike a balance between the commercial and the political and the party have to deal with very difficult task. how not to let you know the so called a captain sabbat is to, to dominate the society. but we do see very creative resistance from the young people of times we have we have seen all kinds of lay flat hidden people just like one to my daughter and cast the resistance to the the dimes i or she just the high pressure of the work so i do think that they are still possibilities. we think within china, i want to thank all i guess william yang shouting lou and eliot zog men, and i want to thank you to for watching. you can see the program again, any time this thing a web site. i was there a dot com for further discussion goes for facebook page at facebook dot com, forward slash ha inside story. and you can also join the conversation on twitter.
