In a move to further protect the Chinese people from themselves, the Chinese government has decided to outlaw the usage of time travel as a plot vehicle in works of fiction.
The new rule, dreamed up by the good time guys running China’s State Administration for Radio, Film, and Television, was brought about because- according to the Chinese Government- television programs and movies dealing with the concept of time travel “… lack positive thought and meaning…”
According to the ruling:
“…The time-travel drama is becoming a hot theme for TV and films," it says. "But its content and the exaggerated performance style are questionable…”
They go on to say in reference to the “made up” depictions of a better life before the Reds took over that these works tend to demonstrate:
“… Many stories are totally made-up and are made to strain for an effect of novelty… They casually make up myths, have monstrous and weird plots, use absurd tactics, and even promote feudalism, superstition, fatalism and reincarnation.”
But before you go freaking out, carrying on about this being the latest abuse by the tyrants running the Chinese nation, be sure to take into account that the new guidelines dreamed up by the State Authority does not out and out “outlaw” the idea but rather “discourage” it from being used (I’m willing to wager in much the same way they discouraged that kid in Tienamin Square from standing in front of the tank.)
