The Chinese Communist Regime is losing control.
The only way they can control the People is with brute force.
They can forget about controlling peoples' minds, for people are becoming ever more resisitant to state mind control attempts.
Chinese are becoming ever-more fearless of the Communists. They've taken so much crap from the Communists that they've become so frustrated and angry as to forget about being fearful.
This is bad for the Communists' ability to control the People, for fear is a major tool of theirs. And once that's gone, well...
Of course, the bad things that happen to the CCP from now on are all their own fault.
