Mickey Mao: Why Disneyland Went to China  more

Mouse Zedong? Disney opens its gates in Hong Kong. The Communist heirs of Mao Zedong and the capitalist successors of Walt Disney shared the stage on September 13 with a near óG1bn monument to globalisation: the first Disneyland on China's newly engulfed territory - Hong Kong. The meeting of the world's biggest Communist party and the planet's best-known entertainment corporation would have been unthinkable to their founders. Walt Disney was a fervent anti-communist; Mao launched deadly purges of rightists and blocked Hollywood films.

While China Daily, the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, critically described its Disneyland-visiting fellow countrymen's misconduct as 'shabby', the authoritarian Beijing regime is certainly complacent when finding itself being stabilized by the Disneyland Hong Kong subtly.
