An event called “I speak for Socialist Core Values” was recently held at the Shandong Institute of Art’s Media School and has made some mild waves on the web. According to Qilu.com, scores of art students at the campus were selected to express what “socialist core values” really mean in their own perspective. Here are some samples:
The doctrine of socialist core values has been widely campaigned by the CPC since its 18th Party Congress in late 2012 in a bid to “rebuild faith” following China’s three-decade economic boom, during which time it was believed that the country had lost its moral compass. President Xi Jinping suggested that the values be introduced in textbooks, classrooms and art works, yet the set of moral principles has only resonated as vague with the general public.
The posters were an attempt to give people a better “visual understanding” of the values, which range simply and (still) vaguely from “democracy” to “dedication”.
