The left's Irrational Hatred of China

Can any of you give a reason asides from US Propaganda about it being somehow capitalist because it has GOVERMENT RUN Corporations and a 80-90% workers control of the MoP Instead of 100% Instantly (Which is simply not viable for china's Material Conditions?

chinese 'government control of economy' makes it no more socialist than Singapore, South Korea or Japan.
hell, even the 'communist party' has abandoned communism wholesale:

Working conditions and wages have been improving tremendously in the last 30 years. China is the only reason liberals can pull off the whole "global poverty is decreasing" bullshit. Just because a few workers killed themselves in some factory doesn't mean that living standards for Chinese workers haven't increased.

That's not what the article says. You pulled that out of your ass.

Bullshit, there is a significant difference. China has the highest state quota after Cuba and the DPRK (I believe it's over 50%). Businesses are usually bought up by the state and corporations don't control politics. All the important assets of the economy, such as transportation, banking, infrastructure and heavy industry are in firm state control. What China did was letting foreign investors set up companies, they never gave up their grip on the enterprises they had control over before.

Socdems out

china is imperialist, fact

last time I checked both countries (esp us kiwis) make their own foreign policy

literally just a tiny country that barely matters, and the official line is still one china bitch


impossible to protect something that never existed


china is early stage capitalism, facing either the middle or stagnation


the ccp has proven itself able of pushing forward a brutally rapid policy of industrialisation, and they deserve acredit for that, but it's not socialism

It's only doing fighting these things to incorporate them into its own empire.

I didn't say China was socialist. I was merely calling out your radlib arguments. China is not a socialist society by any standard, but the socialist mode of production exists in China parallel to the capitalist mode of production, like the NEP in the USSR.

Point to an example where China is imperialist.
Ah, so you are an actual fucking retard, never mind.

the best example, out of many, is dprk

That's geopolitical posturing. I don't see how there is any incentive for China to do this except that they want to put a stop to the DPRK provoking the USA more. Of course I don't agree with it, but that's different than, let's say, the US putting up sanctions against Russia because American oligarchs want to tap into the European energy market.

wew, you fucking retard.
the op did call China socialist - I was answering that you fucking mong. Working conditions and wages improved tremendously in the 30 years after WWII, wow let's all support fucking US of A
oh there is state ownership of economy in the UK (until the 70s)? WOW REAL EXISTING SOCIALISM TAKE ME ATTLEE
the fucking cheek of you marcyite radsocdems
you're so blinded by the red flags you can't see class collaboration when it's held up to your nose

How are public enterprises class collaborationist? How his it collaborationist if the state holds the most shares in a company? That's technically expropriation. Class collaboration, like Fordism or fascism looks very different, because property relation remain intact there. Lenin makes a clear difference as well between socialist ownership and state capitalist ownership - China has both currently existing in their state sector of their economy. This distorted view that you present is the usual Trotskyte deveation from a rational Marxist analysis. Everything is bad, mimimi, feels > reals.

No, because the USA clearly remained a capitalist country throughout its existence.

after this declaration an enormous amount of businessmen joined the party, you know, people from the Capitalist class? the one thats interest is inherently opposed to the interests of the Labouring class?
but on the other hand there were red flags so it was ok and not class collaboration at all. praise Xi

How does that change anything I've said? Make an argument any time. You haven't actually proven anything besides being emotional. How do these businessmen exercise power over the CPCh?

CPC is now a party that represents the capitalist class and the working class
that makes it class collaborationist
do you disagree?

I don't have an irrational hatred of China. I don't even necessarily think the path China chose after the death of Mao was wrong, but it was not the path of socialism. China is a (technocratic, authoritarian) capitalist state.

China has

>Bullshit, there is a significant difference. China has the highest state quota after Cuba and the DPRK (I believe it's over 50%).
First of all, gimme a source on that. Second, state ownership is not necessarily socialist ownership. You could have the state own 95% of the economy and still have a bourgeois ruling class exploit the labour of the working classes. In South Korea for example the state used to own a large chunk of the economy and use some sort of central planning to achieve fast economic growth, but that doesn't mean South Korea was in any way "more socialist" than other capitalist states.

something like leverage in recent trade negotiations?

I do, because you'd have to provide evidence how the CPCh is now bourgeois in character, bourgeois right does not dominate economic decisions of the CPCh. There were millionaires in the CPSU under Stalin.

Increased from what though? Incredible poverty? It's not much of an achievement going up from mass starvation.

>There were millionaires in the CPSU under Stalin.

how would one go about proving this? is the explosion of labour discontent under their rule enough? policies that support capital over labour?
so much for dekulakisation

are you a Chinese PSYOP?
China's a state capitalist now dictatorship that virtue signals Marx to trick its populace into believing their nation has ideals

are you defining bougeoisie in a cultural meaning?
because financially every member of the CCP is a billionaire with exceptionally large real estate and stock portfolios

China is a dictatorship of the proletariat. The proletarian billionaires will implement socialism.

This is Wang Jianlin: CPC member, delegate to the National People's Congress, vice-chair of the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, and vice-chair of member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. But he is better known though as the billionaire founder of the Dalian Wanda Group, China's largest real estate developer, and one of the wealthiest people in China.

I don't know about that. The "Land of the Free" has been turning into a sci-fi dystopia over the last couple decades. For real, watch some twentieth century American sci-fi, and the corporate nightmare worlds that they imagined look freakishly prescient in retrospect. America is the image of old school comic book corporate totalitarianism.

Or we can say hi to Zong Qiinghou, another CPC delegate to the NPC. And founder of Hangzhou Wahaha Group, China's largest beverage producer, which has made him a billionaire.

Nobody ever claimed China is communist.

their government does

From responses ITT it looks like the subject of the thread was on point.

Oh really? Source your claim.

"Communists" bash China for two reasons

1. Liberalism

2. Edginess

There party is run by literal billionaires.

Fucking lol at totalitarian regime-supporting ML's thinking people don't support China to be edgy. This has to be bait, right?

This shit should speak for itself, but you know some idiot will reply saying that it's real evidence that Xi is on the path to communism.

WRONG. It is in no way socialist.

China has "advanced" to the kind of capitalism that would make early industrial capitalissts blush for its brutality and perniciousness.

America couping China would be a progressive regime change at this point.

The party is not run by billionaires, it is exercising a dictatorship over the billionaires. The existence of billionaires is a byproduct of the developing of the productive forces. The Chinese leadership understands Marxism and dialectical materialism unlike you.

America attempting a coup would be good since it would harden anti-American sentiment within China which would help to accelerate their development of counter-hegemony, which they (unlike Russia) are somewhat lazy about doing.

Of course, this is why these billionaires are allowed access to leadership positions within the party and state, giving the bourgeoisie access to the machinery of state and party power is how you exercise a dictatorship over them.

uh and the president declared himself the emperor for life. wow, worker revolution right there good ol 100 percent peasant-lead maoist communism.

Neck yourselves

Faggot shill traitor


The social credit system isn't rationing. It's not to better distribute resources, but rather to exclude anyone who challenges the status quo from resources and infrastructure.

Tell me again why you're not a political leader.

Why on earth would I, or anyone on this board for that matter, support the repression of labor activists and other anti-government leftists? This scheme is just the latest form of bourgeois repression against the chinese proletariat.

Next thing you'll tell me the anti-government protesters in Venezuela are leftist "labor activists", too.

Answer these two questions:
1) who organises these labour activists and who funds their protests?
2) how did you hear about the protests?
2b) if you heard about it from Western media, why is the Western media talking about it?

The pattern is that Western imperialists generally support the dissidents and protesters. Then the Western media points to those protests as a sign of discontent in the country. If they want to do regime change they just say the government wants to kill innocent protesters (like they did in Libya) to justify sanctions or military action.

I don't know why I have to explain this to you…

Read this

And these while you're at it

So there's no way conditions could have improved in 14 years?

So they beat them up and broke up the strike only to give in to their demands? Interesting tactic.

You need to read things more critically, not just eat up whatever is written.

Considering little has changed regarding the systemic issues that plague china, like the fact that it's government is more or less controlled by obscenely rich oligarchs, as well as the commonality of wildcat strikes, I would say little has improved. Any improvements gained have been do to workers resisting the status quo and organizing outside of the system, in opposition to it. You need to read that article again btw, I'll help you by copy and pasting the part you should focus on:

Or maybe China is a capitalist state, with all the signature signs of capitalism. The only ones fooled by the red flags are you infantile Marcyites and politically illiterate liberals. Contradictions of capitalism cause the emergence of communism (as-the-real-movement) such as labour action. If it's supported by hostile imperialist states doesn't make it any more or less communist - the German empire supported the Bolsheviks to weaken the Russian empire for example.

China is about to become the worlds top economy and you guys can't seem to get over it's officials strategic use of stage theory. I honestly don't follow.
What do you suggest they do, go socialist now? Wouldn't it be in their interest to let the west disintegrate (EU, American imperialism through some more of Trump's protectionist policies) and their population to at least hit western European levels of economic development? IIRC they're just now getting cars. Going on that Xi is not bluffing with his rhetoric on introducing socialism a relatively short period, given that he now has supreme rule indefinitely, aren't these some signs that shit might not be as fucking god-awful as you're so dead-set on it being? But at the same time I get why one would maintain a critical attitude as well. Some nuance would be okay though.


The Chinese capitalists have invested so heavily in the American economy that it is now in their interests to try to keep it afloat now.

You don’t build a factory to dismantle it. China owns so much property in America them bailing out the Burger sate is in there self interest.

It isn’t a bluff. It’s a campaign promise that isn’t going to fulfilled. Xi is a polition, and politions lie about what there going to do.



How is this more indicative of socialism and not capitalism than, say, socially provided and communally owned cars, which are a more efficient and expedient use of resources and labor time, whereas the personal private ownership of cars is better for the development of capitalist profit?

That is some funky geography you have going on, dude.

Why would people who are getting rich on capitalism want to get rid of capitalism? The Chinese bourgeoisie has an overwhelming interest in keeping capitalism going, and they are the ruling class. Surely you do not expect them to forego their class interests in the name of being good communists. No, when capitalism falls apart, they are going to be the people who try to hold it together, because that's how class works.

Seriously though compared to the U.S. or Russia, Chinese foreign policy is relatively benign. I'll stick with the 'broad, multilateral global frameworks based on mutual cooperation based on upholding international order and finding peaceful settlements of essentially political problems' and such as the Chinese like to say. They're not bombing anyone.

It's natural geography, not shitty political geography.
It's based on how the Earth is really composed, through tectonics.
Two super-continents separated by major oceans of water.
Afro-Eurasia (incl. the underpopulated pebbles in Oceania) & the Americas.
Geology, not pseudo-science pol"sci".
I'm arguing that since a crash were to have happened anyway (to trigger a chaotic situation like this) then the combined dynamism of #1: the CCP being faced with a global depression, #2 the Chinese working class (one billion) developing into a point of relative socioeconomic maturation and autogestion and #3 the multi-polarization of the global economy. As (N.) Americo-polarity is shrinking both in physical numbers of humans living there as well as in relative economic dominance to Afro-Eurasia then I'm speculating that the chances of a class conscious billion of workers in an industrialized period could manage to change their conditions. Now that of course begs the question; what would the rest of the super-continent look like geopolitically while this were to be taking place?

I don't know. You tell me. There are already socialist pockets in southern Europe, and scattered all across Asia and Africa in various incarnations (Communalists, ML states, socdem/demsoc states, ongoing left-wing national liberation movements) and the Afro-Eurasian continent consists of billions of thinking people.

Fundamentally it's not like we haven't been in an economic depression before; you extrapolate a little for what the incarnation will manifest as.

And China is in damn near the northeast corner of it. "The heart of" would be somewhere in the area of Egypt and Iraq.

You are anticipating that the Chinese workers will stage a revolution against the Chinese state while the world is weathering a depression that does not greatly affect China? This will happen while those places that are the most greatly affected by the economic collapse do… what?

Beyond the absurdity of the prognostication, we have seen this very scenario play out before. The global capitalist economy goes into a depression. The effect is particularly devastating to the older empires, although an emerging power feels the effects as well. What does that emerging power do? Why it joins in the carnage as the old empires destroy one another over what is left of the economy of course! Then it uses its now-unrivaled manufacturing advantage to dominate the post-war environment, thus saving capitalism from itself. Been there, done that, don't need to see the rerun.

Socialist market? U trollin m8?

If you want to praise something chinese praise their commitment to eliminate poverty by 2020, even though that has been made out of fear of the lesser classes rising up against the party.

If China's state really both controls large amounts of the economy, and genuinely represents the working class, why are there billionaires in the government and a huge lack of safety devices that are not cost-prohibitive to install in the factories? Why does the so-called worker's party allow workplaces to go without basic safety railing that allows people to fall into vats of boiling chemicals? These are not expensive nor difficult to install and yet workplace accidents in China are as horrific as they are frequent.
