So this is a horrible story.

The CCP have realised that they are getting some bad press from the elderly in China being treated like animals and have been forced to take one of two choices:

1-Start spreading the wealth, prove they aren't corrupt and actually engender the values they claim to. This would involve setting up social security structures, something socialists and comunists are supposed to be all for.

2-Impose a draconian policy which can't possibly be followed as China has a huge number of migrant workers who move to the coast to work and leave their families in the country. Then claim any deaths in the old are caused by people not following the policy. Finally they can pocket all the money which would have been spent on a social security program and spend it on party officials. All local authority party members can get a new limo for their motorcade.
