Constructing a New Socialist Countryside – the China Daily view

Happy Peasants

China Daily has a roundup of New Socialist Countryside projects, models, and photo galleries of happy peasants, happy peasant children, shiny new villages, and all sorts of bumper harvests.  The images, in particular, are reminiscent of posters from the Cultural Revolution, and even the Great Leap Forward eras, when wheat fields were said to be so thick, children could walk on top of them.  Now they sit on top of the bumper corn harvests.
