>>865092 >It is clear to everyone that China is qualitatively different from the liberal democracies This is the important part, there's a lot of people here who think that since China doesn't fit their conception of a communist country, it must be a liberal democracy/autocracy. China certainly isn't a socialist country (which the Chinese agree with), it's more like a social democracy run by communists, but I will stand my ground and continue to call it communist. "Communist" and "socialist" are vague terms nowadays, and few people ever give their definitions when using those words, so here's how I define them when speaking of practical reality: Socialist refers to the structure of the economy, while communist is pic related. If communism is the "real movement which abolishes the present state of things", and that present state is neoliberal globalization, then China fits the definition quite well. Developing China into a modern, advanced country is a death sentence for Western neoliberalism, as it relies on global inequality so it can outsource capital to cheaper labor markets. By developing its productive forces, China has put a huge portion of the third world proletariat on equal footing with the West, which has been stagnating in its own decadence for decades now. The trade war was started because Western porkies panicked when they realized that China was about to blow past their level of development. What's important to realize is that it's difficult for us to conceive of what "workers ownership" will actually look like, just like it was for Dutch mercantilists to conceive of fully industrialized capitalism. China is at the forefront of technological advancements right now, with 5G, AI, smart cities, high-speed trains, blockchain, and so on. Then there's the Belt and Road Initiative, which is an international development project that has no close precedent in history. I don't give a shit about whatever dead niche ideology you identify with, China is the future and is taking humanity to new heights. Nick Land, that reactionary boomer, put it best when he wrote "Neo-China arrives from the future". One day in an undefined future, we're gonna wake up to find a China that is advanced beyond our imaginations.
>>865131 I remember seeing a video like 7 years ago of a black American man traveling on a Chinese train sperging the fuck out at a local man for this exact same word doing a scene there for everyone's befuddlement. Entitled stupid cunts. They go to a developing country and still find a way to make themselves the victims there. The same phenomenon with anti-Chinese youtubers.

>>865293 >5G >internet-of-things bullshit >blockchain... to accomplish what exactly >technological advancement Can we not pretend Silicon Valley memes are technological advancement?
>>865392 I'm glad you brought up Silicon Valley, because it's a perfect example of capitalism's inability to innovate anymore. In the US, those technologies will never be used to their full potential. Blockchain is used for computer money that's used for speculation and buying drugs online, in China they use it for smart contracts and have created a "digital Yuan". Blockchain is a technology that can fundamentally alter finance and economic exchange, but the West can't do that because it would destroy the status quo. Smart cities allow China to do things like coordinate driver-less electric buses and build the basis of a cybernetic economy. It's true that these things are just memes in the US, not because they aren't revolutionary technologies, but because they threaten capitalism at its base. Here are some articles I scrounged up real quick, I'll look for some better ones too: https://news.cgtn.com/news/3d3d414f34417a4d78457a6333566d54/index.html https://www.china-briefing.com/news/when-can-i-buy-use-and-trade-chinas-digital-yuan/ https://www.eco-business.com/news/tencents-smart-city-seen-as-model-for-post-coronavirus-china/
>>865293 Yeah I only say it isn’t a “socialist” country because that is typically used with connotations of either being akin to the 20th century ML states or having some kind of obvious “worker’s control”, which I don’t think China represents. But they do represent something strange and different from the liberal democracies, or the liberal dictatorships that often serve as collaborators of global capital. Primarily because the party is clearly still in control of the country, and the party very arguably directs state policy for its own preservation and the development of China. But that former point, “its own preservation”, means more than just sinister horror stories of people being black bagged or whatever. The CPC also purges corrupt officials and reproduces its own guiding principles as a form of legitimacy. It continues to represent itself as ideologically communist, and it does promote communist theory and traditional communist ideals in the process of its reproduction. It hasn’t repudiated those things, in fact it recognizes the repudiation of those things currently as a danger to its legitimacy, as just shouting to the Chinese people that the communist party is officially a dictatorship of corrupt oligarchs like in Russia, except no sham liberal elections or anything like that. But in the process of reproducing the communist principles of the party, it does continue to produce communist cadre. And these communists are willing to openly struggle with capital to retain the authority of the party. That means the party has incentive to distinguish itself from capital, if crisis occurs or capital steps out of line the party will quickly throw them under the bus in order to prove that it isn’t just a stooge of the bourgeoisie. But it is a delicate balance and I just don’t pass swift judgement because the party itself can still be very opaque, so it is hard for me to say where this is all going. When China suffers a big capitalist crisis or stagnating profits, what does it do? That is when the CPC has to really pick sides and fully show its hand. Does it whip capital and nationalize failing industries to protect the proletariat, thus choosing to adhere to its public guiding principles, or does it allow the proletariat to be ground up into dust and bail out capital like the liberal democracies do, who openly worship the market and will feed it with misery and corpses because “there is no other way”?
>>865493 5G and IoT are fundamentally bad ideas, you can't make them good with centralized planning.
>>865493 >coordinate driver-less electric buses How about they just use a light rail system like a sane city?
>>865516 >>865519 We're getting bogged down on specifics, my ultimate point is that China is far more capable of developing and effectively utilizing revolutionary new technologies, just like capitalism could with electricity and trains. Maybe those technologies you mentioned are ultimately worthless, but China is actually experimenting with them. Blockchain IS a revolutionary technology, not because I agree with pampered AnCap cokeheads, but because it allows for the full utilization of info and computer tech in economics. Blockchain isn't just cryptocurrencies, it's something that can be used for bank transactions, voting systems, sharing medical data, supply chain and logistics management, and a whole host of other possibilities that are being explored. Let me compare it to electricity, something like Bitcoin is like an electric lightbulb, it's just a small application of the technology. You shouldn't dismiss electricity by focusing on one tiny application. Bitcoin is the ONLY thing capitalism can do with blockchain as it is right now, China is actually trying to develop it into something far more useful. The Chinese state is not limited by profit when it comes to revolutionary developments, even if segments of Chinese society are.
>>865511 This is a great post, I'll post my own additions to the points you made in a bit. To bring up the American Civil War comparison again, China is currently engaged in a struggle between the new bourgeoisie and the CPC/Proletariat; the Confederates (Chinese Booj) can still win this struggle, but that remains to be seen.

>>865511 Again, this is a great post. I agree that China isn't "socialist" by most definitions, which the Chinese agree with. Understanding China and its future require a solid understanding of Dialectical Materialism. The truth is, none of us know what an actual socialist economy will look like, let alone communism. Leftcoms are correct in saying there has never been a "socialist" society, we've only had DotP's that are meant to develop socialism. A revolution was never going to bring about socialism, just like the bourgeois French revolution didn't bring about capitalism. Revolutions primarily affect the superstructure of society, they have little effect on the material, productive base. It's true that the base determines the superstructure, but the superstructure influences and (most importantly) develops the base. Revolutions happen when material developments within the base make the old superstructure obsolete. These developments come from technological and social advances, not from revolutions. All the great, world-historic revolutions (French, Russian, Chinese) were examples of the base asserting its power over the superstructure, qualitatively changing it in the process. The superstructures of the United States and the rest of the Western capitalist societies can no longer further the development of the base; in fact, they HINDER its development. The Chinese revolution destroyed the old superstructure that held back development and the CPC built a new one in line with the material base. When Deng took over from the Gang of Four, the highest level of base development was represented by neoliberal globalization. The Chinese state actively responded to its material reality, and furthered its development by opening-up and taking part in the global productive base. Now that neoliberalism is collapsing the decrepit capitalist states that built it are reverting to old social forms like protectionism, all in a desperate attempt to stave off their collapse in the face of material reality. China is the only one trying to maintain the global system that came with neoliberalism, with the BRI being something major capitalist states are totally incapable of doing anymore. The Chinese superstructure is in tune with the accelerating development of the productive forces; THIS is how socialism comes about. It was the steam engine and electricity that created capitalism's base, not the French or American revolutions. It will be InfoTech and other new developments that will create the international socialist base, the communist revolutions only created structures that can facilitate this.

>>866180 I love me some Dickblast, and he definitely has written some incredibly important shit. I've heard his books have been banned in China, which is a damn shame if it's true. I remember seeing him talk about it in a video, and apparently his work is read by some CPC members even if it's technically banned. Take that with a grain of salt though, it's a vague memory and I don't have a source. Either way, the implementation of some kind of cybernetic socialism is my litmus test for China. I will freely admit I'm wrong about China if they don't do it within the next decade or so, as the collapse of neoliberalism accelerates to its destruction. >>866229 You don't have to believe, whatever happens, happens. Whether China is actually moving towards socialism or not, it is the future. The Columbian Era of Western capitalist domination is coming to an end while China blazes forward into the future. Maybe it will be a glorious communist future, maybe it will be a Landian techno-capitalist hell, either way, the CPC is inevitable. Study it, learn from it, and oppose any Western vultures trying to destroy it.

But it just shows how petty and marginal these differences are from the perspective of someone in China looking at it from a distance.

>>869744 What about it seems crushing? Do not devolve into cowardice at the first sign of turbulence, christ. There is no doubt that China is prepared for this, and has been prepared for years. Most likely result is a continuation of the cold war, as referenced by the source. The world will be split between two competing tech interests, which will compete for dominance on a country-by-country basis as the flagships for economic and political ties between those countries and the parent countries of the tech networks. You need to understand that the US does not have the power to act unilaterally across the globe. Just because it says it wants to shut down Chinese tech across the globe does not mean it can actually do that.
>>869790 My main concern is that measures like this can be overcome only by reverting more and more to planned economy, but at the same time i'm worried Chinese booj will hamper that.

A lot of Chinese consumer products are already better than the burger alternatives, so it's not like iron curtaining post-ww2 eastern bloc. If a Western porky can get steel for cheaper from China he'll protest his gov. barring his access to it. If Western governments bar Huawei while a lot of their civilians already use them and know it to be superior to the alternatives it's gonna have a cultural backslash.

>>873401 Xi probably is a sincere Marxist but there is no way his country will become socialist without a second Chinese revolution, thus ending the PRC and establishing a genuine proletarian state in its place. Capitalism is institutionalized in China so even if Xi wanted for the country to go socialist eventually it would not happen. The national bourgeois may have less freedom in China than in other countries but at the end of the day the state still does as they wish, since the economy is subservient to the profit motive.

The U.S. is still a dominant power — but it’s not clear if it remains the global leader https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/17/us-is-still-a-dominant-power-but-it-may-not-be-the-global-leader.html SINGAPORE — The U.S. is still globally dominant in many areas including finance and technology — but it’s not clear if the world’s largest economy remains the leading power that other countries look up to, said experts during a debate at the Singapore Summit. Speaking on the third day of the virtual conference, they discussed whether “A Leaderless and Divided World will be the New Normal.” The debate took place against the backdrop of a shifting global order in which the U.S. — widely considered the main superpower — is seen retreating from international organizations it’s led for years, while China appears to be rising and challenging American dominance on several fronts. One of the speakers, Ian Bremmer, president of political risk consultancy Eurasia Group, said he saw a world without leadership in the foreseeable future. “If there was going to be true leadership, it would need to come from” the U.S., he said. He pointed out that the U.S. is still globally dominant, with its tech firms growing stronger during the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. dollar’s role as the main reserve currency and strength of American banks. But those strengths are also why the U.S. lacks the interest to lead, said Bremmer. A world without a leader doesn’t hurt the U.S. the way it hurts other countries, he added. “The Americans are not going to be hugely interested or feel the impulse to fill that vacuum in the near term, so I believe that we’re going to be leaderless and divided going forward for the foreseeable future.” However, Niall Ferguson, Milbank Family senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, argued that the leadership of the U.S. has in fact been “very striking” this year. It can be seen in the U.S. Federal Reserve providing financial leadership during the depth of the pandemic-induced crisis and Washington showing technological leadership in campaigning against Chinese tech firm Huawei, he said. He also added that even if the U.S. did not step up as the global leader, someone else will because the world needs one. “The world has an inherent need for leadership. If the U.S. genuinely can no longer provide it, someone else will. Perhaps China, perhaps — who knows — a European Union who now seems to have its own relatively strong leadership in Berlin and Paris,” Ferguson said. The debate also centered on China’s rise as a global power and its attempt to fill the leadership void left by the U.S. But the experts agreed that China is still far from playing a leading role on the international stage. China itself has repeatedly said it’s not interested in replacing the U.S. or in exporting its ideology globally, said Yan Xuetong, dean of the Institute of International Relations at Tsinghua University. Still, the U.S.-China rivalry may force other countries to choose sides. Yan noted that increasingly, countries are seen siding with China on economic issues and relying on the U.S. for security. He cited Singapore, Japan, Germany and France as example of those who have taken such a stance.

>>875774 China: going full fascism /leftypol/: is this communism?
>>875810 >muh chinazi
>>875824 China is not fascist but in practice, is closer to it than socialism, since the productive forces are controlled by the state rather than the proletariat.
>>875837 The communist party controls the state, who controls the mass membership communist party?
>>875845 The Secretariat of the party, whose head is the leader of the state.
>>875837 >the state is a separate entity from the people Is it retard hours? The state is a tool, and the proletariat controls it.
>>875912 How? The leadership is entirely unelected and are career politicians, far from any kind of proletarian representative system.
>>875915 They're elected by the lower rungs, the electoral system just resembles old ML states. If China is fascist, so were basically all the 20th century socialist states I'm aware of. People can elect representatives to the local bodies, and the representatives up for election are often chosen by either the party or some other groups (I don't know the details, I just know formally there is some wider pretense that it isn't just the party that selects candidates, even though I have little doubt that it is probably the case the party selects candidates in most cases). Those representatives then elect representatives to the greater national bodies, which ultimately elect the central committee etc. But of course even the CPC recognizes that the true pool of people's representatives comes from the CPC itself, which has criteria for membership. So the conditions for who gets into state power are more guarded by access to CPC membership than by the local elections themselves. But this is still just like the old 20th century socialist systems. The party membership is always regulated to some degree, and the state is always controlled by the party. So naturally, the party is regulating who has access to state power, and in effect limiting any direct democratic power over the central state that local elections have. Maybe some consider this fascism, but I don't think an undemocratic state is the only requirement for fascism, nor is an economy with heavy state intervention.
>>875930 Does this mean the entire leadership of China is ultimately elected, including the General Secretary? Is China's electoral system any improvement over the USSR's?
>>875958 I don't know because I'm not sure of the specifics of China's system. Plus, nobody really knows for sure what China's long term trajectory is. Right now it obviously looks very "revisionist" in its trajectory so plenty of people would say it isn't an improvement, but then again the USSR's party literally abolished itself and dissolved the state. The CPC might be closer to real democratic access, but that is only because from what I understand there is some mechanism for other groups to put up candidates, but they have to be from the CPC because China is a one party state. But in practice the lower bodies are not going to organically change the structure of the highest bodies like the Standing Committee because the pyramid structure of the state means that the people already in positions to attain such a level of power are also in positions to punish or harass lower level members. Basically there is a level of political patronage coming from above, and the most powerful members of the CPC are going to have their own networks of influence that aid them in pursuing their goals. Which isn't to say the entire thing is as Machiavellian as it could be construed, I don't doubt that it is still possible Xi Jinping for instance is actually driven by a particular ideological stance rather than just crude self-interest. But he clearly thinks he and people who agree with him (or will support him) should be in powerful places, and so if it were possible for a lower body to have an attempt to remove him then he'd have incentive to preempt it with purges or something. In practice these things always happen at very elementary stages rather than during actual democratic appointments by the Politburo or whatever. The lower body will unanimously agree to appoint somebody to some higher position because the decision was essentially already made before the vote through those networks of power. But those networks of power are not entirely unanimous, and also not so cut throat as to always resolve into arrests or purges. Behind the scenes there will be deliberations and disagreements and even polling as to who should be nominated for higher positions, but once the decision has been made everybody has to publicly show agreement, and once higher office has been secured by some individual they basically will have to make some big fuck ups in order to actually be removed. The way the party works makes it so that once you get there it would be very politically disruptive to have you removed for someone else, so if it can be avoided then it isn't going to happen. Xi clearly has a shitload of power and probably won't be removed unless he really fucks up or I don't know, all of his biggest allies die of old age or something.
>>875930 >If China is fascist, so were basically all the 20th century socialist states I'm aware of. That'd be correct.
>>875930 If an undemocratic state was the only requirement for fascism, literally every western state would be considered fascist.

May I have your attention, please? Thank you. I just want to say a few basic thing, really, and I'll be to the point. 1. Did it ever occur to you that people who have no substance to their arguments are rather harsh, short, and edgy in their takes? This applies to all "hot takes" and trolling over the internet, don't you think? 2. Does the old web-saying of "to debunk horseshit requires more energy than to write it" rings true to you? As a communist, are you tired of 5 word "debunkings" of your posts on /pol/ or other places? A very similar thing is happening here. 3. As a communist are you aware of "ultras" and their whole angle? Do you understand that literally nothing is good enough for them? Do you understand that they'll namedrop Marx while not actually following him? 4. Are you aware of the OVERWHELMING propaganda going on in the anglosphere against China right now? Do you understand what that entails, how it motivates people - people even on the left? 5. Do you understand how Americans feel insecure because their empire and hegemony is crumbling, and how that colors their view of China, the next contender? I could go on, but you get the point, I hope. People calling China "red fascist" have 5k upvotes on Reddit and 50k hearts on Twitter and some among us take this culture from there to here. Can we, reasonable people, moreover, "leftists", do better than that? I, or one, hope so. If you need further substantiation of any points here feel free to ask it from the community. We will assist you. Thanks again for reading my tirade, I guess.

How does the existence of billionaires help develop productive forces? Can productive forces not be developed by "just" millionaires? There are multiple capitalist nations prospering with 1 or 0 billionaires. Only 2700 exist worldwide, thereof 800 in China. China is actually overrepresented amongst billionaires in comparison to their population. This doesn't even include the HK billionaires. Explain this to me Dengoids.
>>877953 can you even write an essay, tho, or did chans and memes fry your brain? legit question so far that post received REEEEEEEEEEEe and no substance. That's a fucking fact.
From the perspective that China is actually a capitalist state, what are some predictions for the world in light of crumbling US hegemony and the general decline of neoliberalism? Is this not the more important question?

>>878037 Dengist capitalism restoration was purely for lining his buddy's pockets. Can Dengoids explain how exporting mass manufactured goods does morego develop productive forces than a planned economy that works entirely for the people and not for the market?

This, in itself proves that they are fucking winning IN THEIR CURRENT STAGE of their economy. >Lmao it was Mao who started the retardation that was Three Worlds Theory to justify turning into an American lapdog. The Sino-Soviet split was completely unnecessary. I love how "anti-dengist" posters vacillate between being "Maoer than thou" and "Mao was retarded anyway." See what I wrote about ultras above. As for the "necessity" of sino-soviet split, I'm not an expert (neither are you), but I'm pretty sure Khruschev had to do with it. <believes in trickledown economics I have no idea what you talk about. China does, in fact, alleviate absolute poverty, unlike the neolib/neocon West. This is a fact. China does construct fucking towns and cities for LITERAL RURAL PEASANTS to live in, like every socialist project did in the past. It is not an exaggeration to say that China is currently arriving at socialist goals via capitalist means. >Dengoids You realize, right, that none of us call ourselves "Dengoids," right?

Has that censored PBS documentary on poverty alleviation in China already been posted? It is actually really good. It gives a pretty good glimpse into on the ground poverty reduction programs in rural villages. https://mega.nz/file/SMsDhArZ#vS7dPwnv5DVsbaB_GP4t3I61CWFzxdIRxix9ivHDsgI I can see why they deleted it, it even shows a kind of odd democratic process of the village deciding who is still in poverty and who isn't. Ironically, it seems like the party struggles to find rural villagers who will define themselves as being in poverty, or who will share details about their living conditions on that basis. They seem to consider it a bit shameful to be designated as in poverty.
>>879012 Why was it deleted?
>>879012 Another interesting thing shown in the documentary is the detailed information they collect. They don't simply check tax records or something to see what your household income is, they have cadre who regularly check in on village households to get data on material changes to their circumstances. Like whether they have children who went off to college, or whether someone in the household got sick, or whatever may have materially effected their conditions recently. Then they put the data in files and once they've decided it is all good data they upload it to a database for more centralized poverty alleviation branches to be able to query for detailed info. There was also an interesting scene where a local cadre that the PBS crew was following says that he researches farming in order to better grasp poverty reduction strategies suited to the farmers in the area, and then later he is talking to this woman while she is doing some work on her property about whether or not she'd be open to producing Mulberries for more of the year, and she tells him that she would but that she'd need to cross the nearby creek/river during certain times of year and it gets too flooded or obstructed to do so. So the party guy asks if building a bridge there might help and she agrees and he says he will put in a report to request a new bridge be built there. So it kind of suggests that poverty alleviation isn't JUST kind of blanket subsidies or mindless construction of housing and ghost cities, but also this very micro targeted stuff that is being generated by party officials living in the rural areas and constantly talking to people and trying to help increase the productivity of the villages themselves. >>879028 I honestly don't know. There wasn't any explanation I could find, so the only thing I could think was that PBS actually took it down because they thought it was too sympathetic to China or something. It sounds a bit absurd, but I really don't know why else it would be missing. The PBS twitter account promoted it back in May I think but if you click the link it is gone, and I couldn't find it reposted anywhere.
>>879028 >>879040 nvm, here is an article about it. It was literally taken down because it was criticized as too pro-beijing because it was produced in cooperation with Chinese authorities. Which of course makes sense, how are you going to follow around party officials in rural villages without their consent? https://current.org/2020/05/after-pbs-drops-film-pbs-socal-reviews-documentary-co-produced-by-chinas-state-tv-network/

>>879160 forgot my picture
>>879160 very fucking good
>>879012 Watched some more of this. Again, very good documentary. Offers plenty of balance. They interview a relocated family in this city towards the second half, and they say that they preferred living in the country because they struggled to find work in the city, making it harder to afford it. The only reason they moved was because the government gave them a free house, furnished, and told them there'd be jobs.
>>879160 At 13:30 starts the real shit
>>879160 https://www.abc.net.au/foreign/the-power-of-falun-gong/12492696 https://archive.is/7jvAz The leader of Falun Gong claims that race-mixing in humans is part of an alien plot to drive humanity further from the gods.
>>878126 Billions of people live under capitalism worldwide and might even support it, does that make it better? What type of retarded argument is this?
>>878125 Do you smoothbrain seriously believe China has a planned economy, just because they formulate 5 year strategies? Lmfao And nobody talked about Venezuela you dengoid autist
>>878240 >Marxism is deterministic Another retarded Dengoid talking point. There's a reason Marx says "socialism or barbarism". It is NOT inevitable, because an even worse system might replace capitalism.
>>880098 >It is NOT inevitable, because an even worse system might replace capitalism. History is marching forward, but that doesn't mean there can occur some set backs (even capitalism was many times dismantled, before it could triumph over feudalism).
>>880098 >Marx says "socialism or barbarism" At this point I can't tell if you are trolling or an utterly brain dead pseud.
>>880098 Socialism is basically inevitable if you have state capitalism being guided by a dictatorship of the proletariat. If you wanna dispute how proletarian the CPC is, and whether it's following a really communist goal then that would be the part to look at.
>>880119 It is a paraphrase of Rosa and Kautsky who came later, but the point stands. Why even engage in a political struggle as Marx did if you literally believe socialism will replace capitalism without any further actions needed?
>>880102 Then explain me the need why anyone has to fight for socialism when it is so inevitable, instead of armchairing and waiting for it to end on its own.
>>880134 >Socialism is basically inevitable if you have state capitalism being guided by a dictatorship of the proletariat. The DOTP necessitates the existence of other class elements besides proletariat that must be subjugated. The example of the USSR shows us that those sectors of the society can dismantle socialism if they deem capitalism advantageous to their goals and have accumulated enough leverage. Anybody claimimg that SURELY the CPC will hold these people down for another 30 to 50 years, or that the bureaucrats and bourgeois will never mix, is really going out on a limb here. At best the promises made are incredibly vague appeasements.
