We look at China, and we see Communism, because the Chinese call themselves "Communists". We look at Mao, and Deng, and Hu, and we see Lenin and Stalin and Kruschev, because these men call their party Communists, and we in the West know what "Communists" are.
But we are much deceived in our model.
We are deceived by the word "Communist".
Deng's and Ziao's and Hu's party are not the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, they are the Falangists of Franco's Spain, the Brownshirts of Hitler's Germany.
The Chinese Communists are not Marxists. They are corporatist fascists. Fascism is far more dangerous than Communism could ever hope to be.
For Communism is based on something imaginary, and untrue: the material dialectic of social class, and the eventual victory of the proletariat.
But Fascism is based on things imaginary and vividly true: national pride, history, culture, and the economic power of organized corporations.
Where would you rather be imprisoned facing death as a political prisoner, the Soviet Union, or Fascist "Communist" China? This is easy. The answer is China.
Because the Soviet Russians, lost in their Communist intellectual fantasies and their thuggery, had (and have) sadistic sublieutenants who torture helpless prisoners for the delight of power and torture.
The Chinese understand that prisoners are labor units to be exploited until such time as their market value can be maximized by execution and organ harvest. A starved, beaten and emaciated slave cannot produce. And a tortured man's organs will be damaged. Therefore, if you work in the Chinese prison, you fill your niche and produce, and you eat. And when you are executed, your executioner is not a sadistic torturer sexually aroused by your suffering. He is a prison guard who mechanically puts a single bullet into the nape of your neck, just as cattle are slaughtered, to swiftly and efficiently dispatch you without damaging your valuable organs.
The Soviet Union was backwards and barbaric, incapable of competing with the United States. Nazi Germany, however, with its fascist corporatism, was capable of taking on the Americans head to head, and of outproducing them per capita.
Nazi Germany failed only because Nazi Germany was small. A Soviet Union-sized Nazi Germany would have conquered the world. Modern China is that. "Communist" is a very deceptive label. The Communist Party of China is not Communist. It is Nazi.
YAWN..... another dribble.
I still don't see them lasting much longer because their current wealth production is based of consumer product supply to the world, so if that continues and a larger middle class develops why will they let the Communist Party siphon off so much wealth that business people produce....They don't need the Communist Party to grow their economy...I'm not saying that as China gets richer they will develop a respect for the individual, but if they are producing products that the world buys why keep the reds around to run the political arena...Unless, as has been suggested, the party is just a cover for...What...why the pretence of calling it a "Communist Party" if they have abandoned their Marxist roots...anyway back to baseball, beer, and blogs...
The KPRF and Putin's russia are also built along these lines.
The pretence is important, because the Communists have the legitimacy of being the imperial heirs to Mao. China is a country with a deeply imperial tradition. The Chinese like stability. And with growing wealth, and the fires of nationalism burning brightly, they'll want to keep that stability.
Care to expand?
He is talking about classic Chinese imperial statecraft. Chinese communists went back to its root. They are resorting to what worked in the past.
