BEIJING — The Central Committee and the State Council of China’s ruling Communist Party of China (PCP) has just issued a document outlining the country’s “moral policy,” including an exhortation to “avoid pornography” in the name of “doing a good job in the moral construction of cyberspace.”

The document, called “Outline for the Implementation of Citizen Moral Construction in the New Era,” has as its goal “casting the Soul for the realization of the Great Rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation.”

Last Sunday, the Chinese government released the new “Outline,” with specific instructions on how “to use the internet, raise children, celebrate public holidays and behave while traveling abroad,” according to reports.

“The guidelines from the Central Commission for Guiding Cultural and Ethical Progress calls for building ‘Chinese spirit, Chinese values, and Chinese power,” explained the Business Standard. “The texts urge citizens to avoid pornography and vulgarity online and follow correct etiquette when raising the flag or singing the national anthem.”

China has the second largest number of internet users worldwide, behind the United States, although they represent only a fraction of its massive population.
