Chinese authorities ban ghost and zombie films

The Chinese authorities prohibit ghost films, and are also actively fighting superstitions and feng shui. 

The Chinese are superstitious people. Hundreds of ancient superstitions are still relevant in Chinese society. And if some of them are completely harmless from the point of view of the law (you can’t leave chopsticks in an upright position or bite noodles), then others threaten criminal prosecution (finding a bride for a dead man). With ideologically dangerous superstitions, the Communist Party of China is engaged in an active and implacable struggle.

A major problem in China is superstition, according to which the deceased, if he was a bachelor, must be buried with his “wife.” The Chinese believed that in the afterlife, a man would be lonely if he was buried alone. These customs are still observed in Chinese villages, although post-mortem marriages were forbidden under Mao Zedong. Relatives of the deceased ordered the corpse of a young woman from the “black grave diggers”, the deceased are symbolically engaged and buried nearby. Dozens of people are judged annually for kidnapping corpses in the country.

Strong in China is also a belief in demons. Many Chinese wear amulets that scare away evil spirits. The country still uses the services of exorcists, which help to clear themselves of the negative.

The Chinese Communist Party has been fighting religion and superstition for nearly 70 years. Members of the Communist Party were always obliged to avoid religion, but with the advent of Xi Jinping, the struggle against faith intensified. In 2017, the rector of the Central Party School of China, Chen Xi, stated that belief in the supernatural flourishes at the lower and higher levels of the party, which is a betrayal of the teachings of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin. And this is a direct road to belief in Western values ​​and a threat to the existence of the party.

Superstition and Corruption. Chinese newspapers never tire of repeating that communism begins with atheism, and that superstition only pollutes the brain. Professor Cheng Ping said most superstitious officials are bribes and thieves. Anti-corruption activist Duan Xiaowen adds that feng shui officials are not interested in helping people, they only think about promotion and personal gain.

It is significant that many high-profile trials against officials in China are associated with superstition. For example, the ex-Minister of Railways of China, Liu Zhijun, in addition to corruption, was accused of superstition. Former Minister of Public Security of the PRC, Zhou Yongkang – in revealing state secrets to the forecaster of the future and the doctor. An official from Gansu Province spent 5 million yuan to transfer a 370-ton block of stone to a place advised by a feng shui expert. For the desire to “protect the city from negative energy,” the official was fired and expelled from the party.

The ruling party intends to help people establish the right worldview and with the help of science to deal with birth, aging, disease and death. They decided to start with party workers. In 2016, new rules for communists entered into force. Belief in the supernatural is now considered a violation of party discipline, for which expelled from the party. In order to “save” the minds of ordinary citizens, films with ghosts, spirits and zombies were banned in China .

According to a 2015 WIN / Gallup poll, 61% of China’s population is atheist. This is the highest rate in the world. At the same time, the country has not yet been able to completely get rid of religion, despite strict restrictions. Chinese churches are separated from their world organizations, religious meetings are held in places registered with the authorities, theology must take into account the socialist path of development, special services monitor parishioners, and priests regularly transmit their sermons to censors for examination. Since 2018, fines have been raised for unauthorized church events. By the way, only ethnic Chinese can preach.

Despite the bans, the craving for superstition and religion is growing in China. According to Yang Johnson , winner of the Pulitzer Prize, author of The Souls of China: The Return of Religion after Mao, the country is currently experiencing a religious boom, and the actual number of believers is much higher than the statistics show. Sociology professor at Purdue University in the United States, Yang Fangang, predicts that more Christians will live in China in one generation than in the most “Christian” countries in the world. Perhaps the Communist Party will have to establish cooperation with world religions.

The Ten Biggest Mistakes of Medicine

© CC BY-SA 2.0, Otis Historical Archives National Museum of Health and Medicine

Heroin, mercury, blood release, and surgical procedures that turn patients into apathetic zombies. Swedish Illustrerad Vetenskap offers a peek into the terrible archive of medicine. Here are ten of the biggest mistakes doctors made from antiquity to the 20th century – and only one of them brought not suffering, but pleasure.

Take a look at the terrible archive of medicine and get acquainted with the ten most terrible medical errors in history.

10. Orgasm against female hysteria – used until 1980

At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, some women suffered from “hysteria”. Doctors treated this ailment with the help of a massage apparatus, which brought them to orgasm.

However, the results were very unstable, and the treatment had to be repeated at intervals of several weeks.

9. Children became drug addicts – used until 1930

“Mrs Winslow’s Soothing Syrup” is the name given to the remedy that many parents gave their restless children in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The medicine contained morphine, which caused addiction in children, and even killed many.

8. Homosexuals were treated with electroshock – until 1992

For most of the 20th century, science has stated that homosexuality is a disease that can be cured.

Therefore, doctors subjected homosexuals to a variety of treatments from “homosexuals” and hypnosis to psychotherapy and electroshock.

7. Useful cigarettes – used until 1926

The tobacco plant was brought to Europe from America, where doctors began to praise nicotine for its medicinal properties.

Today, tobacco is considered the main cause of lung cancer.

6. Dependence on “medicinal” heroin – until 1910

In 1898, the German pharmaceutical company Bayer began selling heroin as a cough and tuberculosis drug.

The chemists of the company were sure that the new drug was not addictive.

5. Drilling holes in the skull – used to this day

From the Stone Age to the middle of the Middle Ages, ancient surgeons tried to treat such ailments as migraines by removing part of the cranial bone or making holes in the skull.

The idea was that through the hole evil spirits come out of the head. Such operations were incredibly painful, and the risk of developing the infection was very high, however, excavations indicate that surprisingly many patients survived.

In principle, trepanation is still used today, for example, in the treatment of the effects of cerebral hemorrhages.

4. Mercury as a medicine – used until the 20th century

For several thousand years, doctors have been convinced that virtually everything can be cured with mercury. The Chinese emperor Ying Zheng (259 – 210 century BC), for example, took liquid metal all his life, despite the fact that his tongue was swollen and his gums inflamed.

Today, doctors know that mercury disrupts the brain, increases blood pressure, harms digestion, causes breathing problems, and contributes to the development of depression and anxiety.

3. They bleed to death – until the 20th century

Doctors once believed that illnesses arise from an imbalance in the body’s main body fluids: blood, mucus, yellow bile, and black bile. Bloodletting was supposed to save the patient from an excess of one of the fluids, but often it ended very poorly.

One of the victims was the first US president, George Washington, who in 1799 allowed doctors to try to cure his throat infection with bloodletting.

The main task of the blood is the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Doctors released 3.75 liters of blood from Washington (80% of the total volume), after which he became very weak and died on the same day.

2. Poor hygiene killed millions – until the 18th century

Bathing is not only unnecessary – because of it, you can also get the plague. So doctors believed in the XVI century. “Baths and baths need to be banned, because after them the skin becomes soft and the pores open. Because of this, as we could see, plague-infected dirt enters the body and causes instant death, ”said, for example, the French court physician Ambroise Paré in 1568.

Therefore, for nearly 300 years, Europeans avoided soap and water, and only in the most extreme cases, they gently washed their skin if the contamination could not be removed with a dry towel.

However, aversion to water was a catastrophic mistake.

The plague was transmitted with flea bites, namely because of the uncleanliness of people, fleas spread. During the time that doctors needed to think of something better, their delusion took millions of lives.

1. Dissection of white matter: the patient became a zombie – was used until 1983

Such an eerie treatment has never received such magnificent recognition as in 1949, when Egas Moniz was awarded the Nobel Prize for the invention of “dissection of white matter” – lobotomy. Doctors of that time believed that a lobotomy cured the mentally ill, but in fact this procedure turned them into “vegetables”.

The Portuguese neurosurgeon Egash Monish in 1935 came to the conclusion that he could make patients with psychiatric illnesses calm and obedient, cutting the nerve connections in the frontal lobes.

According to his idea, the dissection of white matter allowed to separate the thinking part of the brain from the sensory. Doctors around the world have adopted the Monish method.

One of them improved the operational method so that the procedure took only six minutes. An instrument resembling an awl was driven into the frontal lobe through the cranial bone just above the eyeball, after which the doctor moved them up and down.

Then the same thing was repeated over the other eye. At least 50 thousand people underwent lobotomy.

After this, the emotional life of the majority became very limited, because it is the frontal lobes that are responsible for the person’s personality. Many, for example, began to act like little children or suffer from dementia, if not at all, turned into real zombies.

The return of the Hums. Scary trumpet sounds over Eastern Europe and Argentina

On April 3, 2020, very scary news came from the city of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia: Usually, there are always a lot of questions with these “trumpet sounds”, since the videos are isolated incidents, but in this case the whole city heard it all.

And not only the city, and not only in Slovakia. Even the conspiracy theorists do not know exactly what causes these sounds, not to mention the adherents of the officials who will not say too much. Nevertheless, there are two equivalent versions of this phenomenon, unless we are talking about the trumpets of the Apocalypse:

a) Trumpet sounds are connected to some tectonic processes;
b) Trumpet sounds are made by giant alien ships.

We don’t know the mechanism of seismic tension, but we can assume that the African plate moved and began to put more pressure on the hypothetical Great Adria, an ancient lithosphere plate that floats in the mantle under Europe. If the hypothesis about the “Great Adria” is correct, then this plate extends all the way to Norway and is responsible for the Vrancea zone, as well as other mysterious seismic centers of the continent. And now earthquakes started at the base of the Great Adria, and the plate itself somewhere in the depths makes some kind of terrible sounds.

Europe is waiting for an eruption of a volcano, M9.0 or so, and based on their observed correlations of “trumpet sounds” and lithospheric incidents, adventures should be expected in the second half of April. You can also think that “trumpet sounds” are made by alien ships. This, of course, is a more calming version than mega-earthquakes, nevertheless, we also do not expect good news from the “Martians”.

Several Argentine cities report strange sounds from the sky

In recent weeks, several users and local media in Argentina have reported on trumpet sounds invading the night, some with an official explanation and others not. Neighbors of the Buenosairean locality of Olavarria for example, stated that they had heard it, while just a week ago, something similar was reported in the province’s capital, La Plata.

Finally, in the province of San Juan in the west of the country, users flocked online to report having heard the phenomenon and looking for an explanation.

In all cases, the buzzing occurred in the middle of the night early morning, and lasted for several minutes, 15 at least according to reports.

Among descriptions of the event, some compared it to “trumpets,” others to “airplane engine,” and even some were frightened that it was a bombardment. It should also be noted that, according to neighbors, the dogs were barking and were upset.

In the case of the city La Plata, it was the only place where the authorities gave an official explanation, alluding to the fact that it was an internal power outage at the YPF La Plata Industrial Complex, a situation that generated the “increase in noise and intensity of torches due to unit arrests”.
