Although the slogans incorporated various legitimization strategies to appeal to the audience, an underlying strategy that the majority of the posters shared was to reach an objective that lay in the future, the 中国梦, the Chinese Dream.

They include harmony, rules, rites, order. When this is accomplished within governance and within society, the nation will flourish and succeed.
