How much has been spent to maintain stability?
The cost even exceeds military spending!
Putting aside all the other issues for a moment,
There is a horrendous dark secret behind the internet tax.
People say the internet speed in China is slow,
Contrary to common sense, behind the slowness is huge expense.
The evil Communist Party always advocates twisted ideologies,
Reverse your thinking first before trying to analyze its behavior.
Internet speed in mainland China, many times slower than other countries,
Internet fees in mainland China, many times higher than other countries,
Netizens supposedly pay for internet maintenance,
The cost of which is minimal,
The real expense comes from the internet blockade.
How very unlucky are the netizens in mainland China!
They pay to read lies, and they pay more than others to have themselves silenced
They pay to be hoodwinked, since all the money they pay goes to internet blockade.
The corrupted officials need to please their mistresses, thus they are hungry for money,
Bribing their bosses and taking control in a power struggle, many such necessities also require huge sums of money,
You, among countless netizens, empty your savings to pay for these costs, as well as the salaries of internet police.
If you ever ask why, be prepared to get blindfolded and slapped on the face,
If you ever demand an explanation, an accusation of subversion awaits,
If you ever try to analyze the situation, expect to be labeled a rumormonger.
Who pays for the blindfold over your eyes?
It is you, the taxpayer!
Your tax money at work for handcuffs and shackles,
The internet tax is also part of it,
Not only the internet tax, all other types of fees and taxes function just the same,
Internet police live on your internet tax,
Other tax collectors feed on other taxes.
The evil party officials, sneaky, overweight thieves.
Blind Chen Guangcheng, defending people’s rights without fear,
The evil party treats him like a big enemy,
His house besieged by an army of guards,
Who do you think pays the money to turn his home into a jail?
Tens of millions spent every year,
The party leaders still say it’s worthwhile,
Don’t you find the “world monopolized by the party” dark beyond description?
How can they maintain stability by committing these evil deeds?
The more they attempt to maintain stability, the less stable it becomes,
Everyone is on his guard, everyone feels insecure.
Checking the internet every now and then,
The more I use it, the more indignant I become,
I’ve paid so much to these monsters who are after people’s lives.
The Great Firewall, set up to deceive you,
Breaking it to seek the truth is considered a terrible crime.
Keeping the Communist Party for one more day, no more hope for anyone,
Now Heaven is destroying it,
Announce your withdrawal from the party if you want to survive,
Once the Communist Party is disintegrated, enjoy swift internet surfing every day,
Plenty of savings back in your pocket (with the drastically reduced internet cost),
Surfing the boundless world with great joy!
