In 1981 several organisations jointly issued the 'Proposal for unfolding activities to foster socialist decorum'. This included the 'five stresses' - decorum, manners, hygiene, discipline, and morals; and 'four points of beauty' - beautification of the mind, language, behaviour, and environment. In 1983, a commentary in the People's Daily asked for these stresses to be incorporated with the 'three loves' - of the motherland, socialism and the Chinese Communuist Party. A committee was subsequently established in Beijing with CCP Politburo member Wan Li as director.
