Destiny's mixed metaphors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


In April 2014, an article titled The China Dream and the New Horizon of Sinicised Marxism appeared on the Qiushi website run by the Chinese Communist Party s Central Committee. Qiushi describes itself as the Party s most influential and most authoritative magazine devoted to policy-making and theoretical studies and aims to promote the Party s governing philosophy . The article defined the China Dream as the means for bringing together the state, the nation and individuals as an organic whole . It can do this, the article said, because it accentuates the intimate bond between the future and destiny of each and every person with that of the state and nation .
