I don't like China but I have to admit this is difficult to refute. Blacks, Jews and homosexual degenerates. Generally all these people care about is the destruction of their respective countries' values, destruction of native population, destruction of culture. China at least is trying to further its own agency, although I'm sure it's corrupt as fuck and not nearly as rosy as it tries to project.

>Why are you CCP admirers
I don't admire the CCP, I'm fucking terrified of it. But that point is pretty much valid. China is factually growing exponentially, while the West, after all this Covid shit, seems to be concerned about tranny rights, diversity, letting hordes of rapefugees in that we don't have the resources, time, energy to handle, and a million other things that come to the direct detriment of the native population. In this moment we need strong ethics, stability, unity, and so on. We don't need to foster institutional racism against whites and the destruction of our heritage, and the replacement of native populations with illiterate criminals. It's impossible to say that what we're doing right now in the West is aligned with Western people's well-being.
I think China is committing many atrocities, it's obviously a totalitarian shithole, but I wouldn't say that what it's doing is against Chinese people's interests. How do you refute that?

Marxism and the Chinese belong together like a hand and a glove. Look into the history of Chinese thought. The explosive growth in China is a result of its wholehearted embrace of Marxism in the 20th century, and the general materialist worldview that Marxism is predicated upon. Contrary to the opinions of unread pseuds, Xi Jinping is actually an extreme orthodox Marxist. Deng Xiaoping Theory is a result of the Chinese actually understanding Marxism. If one reads even basic works such as The Communist Manifesto, we will see that capitalism is both celebrated and condemned for the explosive growth of industry and the productive forces and for the destruction of the vestiges of the old systems and ways and life. What China has been doing for the last few decades is purely Marxist, i.e. developing the productive forces of the Chinese economy in order to transition into socialism. They see that they must exert control over the commanding heights of the economy, just like what happened under Lenin in the NEP phase of the USSR, except they are engaging on an extended NEP in order to change the material conditions to allow the establishment of communism.

China will establish communism, unlike failed underdeveloped agricultural shitholes like Cambodia and the USSR from the 20th century

>>19461516
Assuming you meant CCP shills/leftypol posters, then you make a valid point. I think it is because these people are completely disconnected from the actual costs of implementing the ideology they love so much. I've seen posters on this board who post about how great the CCP is admitting they don't want to move there because YouTube would be censored. Huh? That's where you draw the line?

But it just goes to show that for most CCP (communists in general, and I suppose right-wing radicals as well) fans in the West see their support of the CCP in the same light as rooting for a sports team. As long as there's a communist China out there, they'll support it because they like communism. The minute they face some of the real consequences of communism, their support collapses.

I'm not saying they should actually move to China. I recognize that there are barriers to that. But if you are saying "I support the CCP and communism", you should at least WANT to live in China. If you don't want to because you don't want censorship of things like movies or games, perhaps you shouldn't be as supportive of the CCP as you seem to be.

>If they weren't actually communist, explain all the communist imagery and references to Marx.
no problem, I'll have Lenin explain it to you:
>Marx's doctrines are now undergoing the same fate which, more than once in the course of history, has befallen the doctrines of other revolutionary thinkers and leaders of oppressed classes struggling for emancipation. During the lifetime of great revolutionaries, the oppressing classes have invariably meted out to them relentless persecution, and received their teaching with the most savage hostility, most furious hatred, and a ruthless campaign of lies and slanders. After their death, however, attempts are usually made to turn them into harmless saints, canonising them, as it were, and investing their name with a certain halo by way of "consolation" to the oppressed classes, and with the object of duping them, while at the same time emasculating and vulgarising the real essence of their revolutionary theories and blunting their revolutionary edge. At the present time the bourgeoisie and the opportunists within the labour movement are co-operating in this work of adulterating Marxism. They omit, obliterate, and distort the revolutionary side of its teaching, its revolutionary soul, and push to the foreground and extol what is, or seems, acceptable to the bourgeoisie.

I think our guys still for China as a more authentic shill for Trump, because it actively steams people at home who mutually hate each other.

That being said, I'd appreciate a any accurate take on Chinese governor and society and their social strategy going forward, which due to ideological constraints that make their way into the economy is absolutely forbidden in the US/Anglosphere.

For instance an American book would say Mao was bloodthirsty and the GLF was to secure his own power yet fumbling and incompetent. A Chinese book might say the GLF was poorly handled but purged the society of its detritus and subversive elements. Both can be true.

For instance anyone could just as easily say real capitalism has never been tried because a centralized oligarchy quickly seizes control of as much of society as is technologically in their means to seize and begins dictating economic terms to the point of a command economy. The whole economic as central point debate is Jewish, imo.

I don't know any book that you can read on this that would satisfy your want for unbiasedness though but the CPC themselves recognize the mistakes of Mao, and have largely adhered to Deng Xiaoping’s declaration that Mao was “70 per cent right and 30 per cent wrong”.

My only horse in the race is who's actually in charge and what are they doing to you.

here's your theory:
>And the modern state, again, is only the organisation that bourgeois society takes on in order to support the general external conditions of the capitalist mode of production against the encroachments as well of the workers as of individual capitalists. The modern state, no matter what its form, is essentially a capitalist machine, the state of the capitalists, the ideal personification of the total national capital.
but apparently now supporting the general external conditions of the capitalist mode of production against the encroachments of individual capitalists is proof of socialism
>>
>>19462595
>supporting the general external conditions of the capitalist mode of production against the encroachments of individual capitalists is proof of socialism
Yes. You can't have the socialist stage without the capitalist stage running to its completion. China is making sure that happens.
>>
>>19462595
>they execute it, not obstruct. call me when those financial cartels make it so that making more money out of money becomes a less dominant activity in the world in terms of social production, not more dominant.
They have made it significantly harder to create value though the system of wage labor, private property, and markets, within the countries in which they operate, through various forms of fraud, usury, regulations, etc. Defining capitalism as "capital making more capital" is not useful at all when we need to distinguish the actual productive element in capitalist economies.

the "capitalist stage" runs to its completion with the proletariat overthrowing bourgeois rule and abolishing private property. yet the Chinese state has an extensive apparatus of oppression to make sure that this doesn't happen.
>>19462622
>They have made it significantly harder to create value though the system of wage labor
no they haven't. the system of exploitation has only been perfected. I don't deny that capitalism undermines itself and through its own functioning creates inevitably obstacles for itself, but I don't know what this has to do with anything.
>Defining capitalism as "capital making more capital" is not useful at all when we need to distinguish the actual productive element in capitalist economies.
we have distinguished it like 300 years ago

Are you simply going to ignore the actual productive element, which I outlined to you as the system of wage labor, private property, and markets? That's what pro capitalists refer to when they praise it, simply defining the word in a different way does not address the issue.

You have an incredibly myopic view of power to understand something like the creation of the federal reserve as "capitalism undermining itself" rather than a criminal cartel instituting a massive system of fraud that obstructs markets.

Unless you want things to go to hell, you need to build up the productive forces completely, and create the groundwork for a centralized planned economy. That is what China is doing.

As for the proletariat overthrowing bourgeois rule and abolishing private property? That happened in 1949. China is a communist country, just in the capitalist stage of development.

those are just aspects of capitalism. what's your point?
>That's what pro capitalists refer to when they praise it, simply defining the word in a different way does not address the issue.
I'm not defining it in a different way. private property plus the current level of productive means wage labour and markets, wage labour means capital, and capital means making more money out of money by using wage labour. you're talking about the same thing as I am, you're just confused because you don't understand how the concepts you're using are interconnected.
>>19462726
productive forces are never built completely. the Erfurt Program from 1891 says that "the powers of productivity have grown beyond society’s control, that the private ownership of the means of production has become incompatible with their appropriate application and full development". Lenin called Western capitalism after 1876 "highly developed and 'overripe'". but apparently the great China in 2020 is more backwards than 1890s Germany.
save this bullshit for the 50 iq idiots who'll buy it.

you can't own property in China? okay then. good job, your strategy of saying random ridiculous shit to tire me out out the conversation has worked.

Unironically no, you can't. You're leasing it from the government.

Those are not aspects of it, they are its core, you dont have capitalism without those things.

Explain to me what the federal reserve or the civil rights act have to do with wage labor, private property, and markets. How are these things just "capitalism" to you? Is someone stealing money from a bank also "capitalism"? Do you not care about the vast difference in government structure between 17th century Netherlands and 21st century USA, the latter is just a "late" version of the former because they both had mostly capitalist economies? Why does capitalism produce different results in different countries, why does Israel not have civil rights act or mass immigration?

umm sweaty./...,/,... did you accidentally leave out the rest of the paragraph? or did you think I just wouldn't call you out on your bullshit?
>... The more it proceeds to the taking over of productive forces, the more does it actually become the national capitalist, the more citizens does it exploit. The workers remain wage-workers — proletarians. The capitalist relation is not done away with. It is rather brought to a head. But, brought to a head, it topples over. State ownership of the productive forces is not the solution of the conflict, but concealed within it are the technical conditions that form the elements of that solution.
>This solution can only consist in the practical recognition of the social nature of the modern forces of production, and therefore in the harmonising of the modes of production, appropriation, and exchange with the socialised character of the means of production And this can only come about by society openly and directly taking possession of the productive forces which have outgrown all control except that of society as a whole. The social character of the means of production and of the products today reacts against the producers, periodically disrupts all production and exchange, acts only like a law of nature working blindly, forcibly, destructively. But with the taking over by society of the productive forces, the social character of the means of production and of the products will be utilised by the producers with a perfect understanding of its nature, and instead of being a source of disturbance and periodical collapse, will become the most powerful lever of production itself.
let's see what marx had to say about early communist society in the critque of the gotha programme
>What we have to deal with here [in analyzing the programme of the workers' party] is a communist society, not as it has developed on its own foundations, but, on the contrary, just as it emerges from capitalist society; which is thus in every respect, economically, morally, and intellectually, still stamped with the birthmarks of the old society from whose womb it comes.
those two quotes seem to come together nicely, don't they? who'da thunk marx and engels had thought about this a little bit eh? nice try

Christianity has inexorable shaped every grain of our lives, while Marxism is just one thinker's influence and a few failed states. Empires come and go.
