Humanising the Leader / India’s Protests

Interesting analysis of how the CCP is working on humanizing Xi Jinping, this time by admitting he can cry… Fascinating to read about exactly when and why those incidences occurred, as a window into the cult of personality as it’s being built.

 

India has being experiencing an unusual number of massive protests lately, resulting even in the shutting off of water supplies for Delhi for a few days. Many of these protests are about the rights of castes in India’s political system, something both historically, culturally, and politically complicated. This is a useful explanation for understanding some of the dynamics at play.
