#Gramsci #Thread Part II:

Wrapped up last thread with some thinking on how Gramsci's concept of WarOfPosition could be used to understand the current PRC approach to HK.

This had been part of broader thinking on policy shaping PRC civil society under Xi.
Within PRC, I argued that CCP is aiming to construct an #IntegralState, where doctrine is formulated within political society, then legislation and regulation developed to ensure this doctrine permeates civil society and, crucially, restricts alternative perspectives.
Yet, China is complex and, while this applies mostly at the national level, there are several territories where alternative strategies are required: HK, Xinjiang and Tibet.
