I was just wondering if China's national anthem was meant to be ironic. According to this article: China's new rules for singing national anthemhttp://www.cnn.com/2014/12/15/world/asia/china-national-anthem-rules/index.html Part of the anthem says "arise all those who refuse to be slaves". But you had better fucking sing it like we tell you slaves, or at least their new law would suggest. I mean fucking hell they already banned the use of puns. Who bans puns?? Jesus talk about a slave society. Does their military goose step?? Ever time I hear about a new law in China I am just that much more thankful I don't live in that oppressive **** hole.

China's national anthem was written during WWII, and the first verse that you quoted was meant to tell Chinese people not to be slaves to the Japanese. 奴隶 (the Chinese word for slave) does not bring up hundreds of years of subjugation that the use of "slave" brings up in Westerday culture. A lot of the younger generation of Chinese realize how much of a shithole their country can be, so that's why you see so many Chinese students studying abroad in Western colleges. None of them really plan to return to China :)

If they outlaw puns, only outlaws will have puns.
