Despite the fact that China has long been no longer a state with a totalitarian regime, the echoes of the times when the country was ruled by the strong hand of Grandfather Mao are still palpable. In a country that provides the whole world with sex toys, the most seemingly harmless things are suddenly banned.

We will tell you about just five unusual prohibitions legally enshrined in China, but in fact there are many more such interesting rules, and not all of them lend themselves to logical explanation.

Representatives of hip-hop culture, according to the directive of the General Directorate of Radio, Cinema and Television of the People's Republic of China, are prohibited from providing airtime for performances on all state channels of the country. Moreover, TV companies are strictly forbidden to invite people with tattoos and other citizens to the airwaves "whose moral character is low, and who have spiritually departed from the ideological dogmas of the Communist Party."

Actors, performers and athletes who have appeared in scandals or have a dubious reputation also fall into this category. The resolution of the party for all these elements alien to the people is the same: "Vulgarity".

The strict ban on reincarnation, which is valid throughout the territory of the PRC, is imposed for political and religious reasons. It is known that Tibet was occupied by China in the middle of the XX century, and its political and spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, lives in exile in India.

So that the head of the Buddhists and the main supporter of the independence of Tibet could not shake the situation in the country, they banned reincarnation for any purpose. Now, if the Dalai Lama leaves this world and decides to be reborn anew in his native Lhasa, he will not succeed, since there is a paper with a seal prohibiting such a cunning move.

Time travel was declared illegal in China in 2011. This is due to the fact that shortly before that, local science fiction writers gave out several "masterpieces" that distort the history of the country. Historical inaccuracies, according to high officials, could form a wrong impression about the PRC around the world. That is why it will not be possible to see ancient Moscow, that is, Beijing, without the sanctions of the relevant authorities.

It's not that the Chinese authorities have banned the public demonstration of Winnie-the-Pooh on pain of being shot at the stadium, but this character is undesirable. If you look closely at the photo with the Chinese leader, then everything will fall into place.

Moreover, any content of such a plan cannot be stored on media — it is prescribed to delete it immediately. In this unobtrusive way, the Chinese government protects its people from unnecessary and harmful information. Alas, it is already clear that the appearance of Chinese analogues of jokes about Lieutenant Rzhevsky is not expected in the near future.
