I wonder how really effective all this brainwashing and propaganda are on the chinese population...

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Unfortunately, it is very effective even if only from a fear factor.  Those who protest anything know they are risking their lives or may spend years in an "insane" hospital, reeducation camp or prison.  

As in the former Soviet Union, those who disagree with the official party line are viewed as "mentally ill".  They do seem to have cut down on outright killing them as they are concerned with what the rest of the world thinks.

The "party" officials know very well they can't really kill an idea whose time has come so they rule by the fear of consequences.  

Also, consider that culturally, it is a population with a 5000 year of history of Confuscian obedience.  Any sort of civil disobedience has always been seen as disruptive rather than as a right.
