The Chinese government is set to hand down a new mandate to artists, writers, and musicians that all new works must follow standards of “morality” and “patriotism.” 

And Fox News learned the announcement will include a directive that the work is “clean” and “honest.” “It is necessary to broadly unite and gather patriotic and dedicated literature and art workers under the leadership of the party, and cultivate a large number of writers and artists with both integrity and ability,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said during an address to the Federation of Chinese Literary and Art Circles. 

“Arts and culture should lead the times but cannot be about things that are bizarre and ridiculous,” Xi added, stressing that “[writers and artists] cannot become the slaves of the market and money.”

China’s government recently banned effeminate men from TV and told broadcasters to promote “revolutionary culture” to help a “national rejuvenation” in the country. Companies and the public are under increasing pressure to align with Xi’s vision for a more powerful China and healthier society.
