In China in Ten Words written by Yu Hua, Hua tells us in his book about what he went through growing up. He also tells us about China’s failures and achievements to make China a better place. The chapter “Revolution” describes what china does to make China better when Hua was younger. In this chapter there is a saying that caught would catch the viewer’s eye, and this saying is “The government is fully committed to this project. Nothing will be permitted to stand in its way.” (130). This saying describes the Chinese Dream very well because this website is about what China is doing or about what their trying to do. China is one country that will do whatever they want and don’t care what others say and they won’t let anybody or anything stand in their way.

The organization mythology of this website was mainly for the Xinhua News Agency to get ahead of other news agency out there in the world. But they also wanted to let the world know what China is up to and to let China know what the world id up to as well.
