The Malaise of Rural Life World in the Context of the New Countryside Construction in Southern Jiangsu, China
  Abstract

Based on Habermas’s theory of the life-world, this paper attempts to examine the recent government’s policies to construct rural markets and countryside living form and to conduct an in-depth analysis of the crisis that is facing the rural life-world within these two dimensions. The paper questions the rationality of the government actions in new countryside construction of Southern Jiangsu. It is contended that excessive government intervention with the systematic lack of democracy and freedom will lead to multiple crises of rural life world and eventually cause the system to colonize the rural life world.
