China does great propaganda. From the Great Leap Forward to the 2008 Olympics, the posters tell the story and this guy collects 'em. My favorite so far is this one.

"Where do you spit your phlegm? In a handkerchief! In wastepaper! In a spittoon!" We could sorely use some of those hygiene posters, and maybe a few of those posters about smiling: "Serve customers in a cultured, civilized and enthusiastic manner--Develop new socialist habits."

O.K., but the old Soviet stuff can kick Chinese propaganda's ass every day of the week

Were the Soviets truly as motivational as the The Posters of the WPA?
