A Glimmer of Hope in China: The ‘Lying Flat’ Counterculture
by Anders Corr

Commentary:

After an anti-China stabbing of a Hong Kong policeman late on July 1, the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and the 24th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong to China, Hongkongers and the world are in need of a little positive energy. The stabbing caused debate between nonviolence and violence advocates on how Hong Kong should respond to China’s increasing repression in the city. After taking part in that debate, I believe that some Hongkongers need a little nonviolent inspiration.

[snip]

Mr. Luo Huazhong, the original “Master of Lying Down,” started the movement by posting a photo of himself lying somewhat flat in his modest Sichuan Province bed, along with a revolutionary idea for China. Mr. Luo wants out of the rat race and he believes that “lying flat is justice.” Mr. Luo called the action of lying down his “sophistic movement,” in reference to the Greek philosopher Diogenes, who lived in a barrel and begged for his food, while reputedly thumbing his nose at Alexander the Great.

The movement was therefore explicitly political and philosophical from the beginning, which likely explains its popularity. Other young people in China quickly followed Mr. Luo’s lead, with 9,000 members joining within a few weeks and spawning a Chinese “tangping” (躺平) counterculture that now includes music videos, the sale of “lying flat” accessories, and numerous photos of cats and seals who are—you guessed it—lying flat.

Tangpingers rebel by avoiding anything that requires a lot of time or money, including marriage, children, and house purchases. They live at their parents’ houses, and bicycle instead of drive. They refuse overtime at work, or quit their jobs altogether. They’re against “996,” which is shorthand for working 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., six days a week. That’s standard practice in China.

Tangping is a good way to resist the CCP in a society where any other type of resistance is difficult. Every yuan that tangpingers don’t earn is a yuan that the regime can’t tax. ...
