From descriptions of audience applause recorded in official transcriptions of speeches by Nicolae Ceausescu. They were included in a blog post published last year by Yuan Ling, a journalist. The post, which drew parallels between Communist Romania and contemporary China, was widely shared on social media during China’s Nineteenth National Party Congress. Translated from the Chinese by Diana Bates.
