[Without a revolution, corruption can’t possibly be restrained] China is about to enter a rapid historical process of rot and “granulation” (沙化), and this can’t be stopped! There may be some moderation of official corruption now, but the corrupting trend of the rash and self-seeking drive for profit throughout our entire society will grow more an more severe. Even though weak ideological slogans and propaganda education will do their utmost to resist it, the “economic foundation will dictate the overall structure”, and aside from revolution all work is in vain.

The original Chinese language post follows:

【除非发生革命,腐败不可能遏制】中国将进入加速腐烂“沙化”历史进程,不可阻挡!官场腐败或许有所收敛,但整个社会私有化下的“自私自利、唯利是图和一盘散沙化”的腐败将越演越烈。尽管软弱无力的意识形态空口号和宣传教化会做出顽强抵抗,但“经济基础决定上层建筑”,除了革命都是徒劳无功的。
