All governments are. Rememher our response to Joe McCarthy’s imaginary “Communist threat”?
All Chinese dynasties have been obsessed with stability and hramony. Why? Look at this example of the last successful religious uprising in China. It happened during my grandfather’s lifetime, under the old Emperor, and it brought down the mighty Ching Empire:

That’s about as foolish and vacuous a comment as would be possible. “Obsessed” with stability? How about “really wants a stable society so the country can just develop and everybody can have a nice future without having to worry about the US starting another war in Korea or Vietnam, and without it trying to fill China with yet more CIA NGOs to destabilise everything”?
