[Opinion] “Lie Flat”, the Civil Disobedience Movement 2.0

Author: MOS Translation Group – GBW

“Lie-flat” is a popular internet term in Communist China in 2021, referring to the attitude of young people who choose to “lie flat” out of frustration with the repressive work culture. “Lying flat” is a way of nonviolent protest against the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) slavery system. Instead of being treated as a slave, it is better to “lie flat” and be a person with low desire. “Lie flat” has the potentials to become the civil disobedience movement 2.0.

“Lying flat”, a seemingly passive action, contains massive power. The CCP’s propaganda machine quickly told the Chinese that “it is OK to resign oneself to fate but not OK to lie flat.” The CCP has reasons for concern. Once the Chinese people “lie-flat”, the repressive CCP regime will come to a standstill and cannot exist for a single moment. The CCP’s army and guns will be useless in front of the “lie-flat” people.

The concept of “lie-flat” shares some similarities to India’s civil disobedience movement led by Gandhi. Civil disobedience uses nonviolent methods to protest against injustice in government. However, there’s more to just being nonviolent. Gandhi called his overall method of nonviolent action Satyagraha, which translates as “Truth-force.” Gandhi wrote “Truth (satya) implies love, and firmness (agraha) engenders and therefore serves as a synonym for force. I thus began to call the Indian movement Satyagraha, that is to say, the Force which is born of Truth and Love or non-violence.”

Coincidentally, the anti-CCP Whistleblowers Movement also has the “truth” element. Miles Guo, the founder of the movement always says “Only truths can prevail.” Truth has been proven effective at fighting the CCP’s false state. So far, the four-year-old Whistleblowers Movement has woken up many Chinese, who were previously poisoned by the CCP’s brainwashing. In the last year and a half, the Whistleblowers Movement consistently told the world the truth of COVID-19 being a CCP’s lab-made unrestricted bioweapon. Today, the lab origin claim is the mainstream. As a result, the world demands a full, transparent, and evidence-based investigation into Wuhan labs and to hold the CCP accountable.

Recently, Miles Guo said he will add a new element to “lie-flat.” He proposed the concept of “lie-flat coins”, meaning Chinese who “lies flat” can receive “lie-flat coins.” In the 20th century, civil disobedience might entail jail sentences. In the 21st century, civil disobedience 2.0 will consist of “lie-flat”, truth, and digital currency. It is not only a safe and effective way to end the CCP but also a source of wealth. We look forward to participating in civil disobedience 2.0.
