    In what sense? Define your terms. You chimed in on a thread discussing a cult's propaganda to say that Chinese cultural events are possibly a sign of (presumably) Chinese cultural imperialism. Aside from missing the point that the cultural performance under discussion is not sponsored by China, you're missing the point that alongside the Yellow Peril there have also been periodic waves of popularity for Orientalism. They come and go, so no ... Ming the Merciless isn't going to come and overwhelm Western culture.

    Can't speak to the Shen Yun thing, but I will say that China is excellent at their soft and hard power usage.

    Their hard power tends to be very subtle and at the moment limited to Tibet and the South China Sea.

    Their soft power though has been aggressive ever since they figure out that every nation on the planet is fucking nuts about pandas.

    The Chinese government actually wants to get rid of everything related to Falun Dafa. So in this particular case they did a bad job.

    It's the opposite of China.

    Can someone please explain to me what the fuck does the title of this thread mean?

    I know it's a sarahtasher thing, but it's nonsensical even to his/her standards.

    @Puupi Oddly, it isn't as nonsensical as it first seems. There is a performance troupe called Shen Yun. They are run by a particular cult and the troupe's performances have been reviewed as rather heavy handed propaganda. I linked the wiki earlier in the thread.
