- Reaction score
A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, a capitalist economy subject to stringent governmental controls, violent suppression of the opposition, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
Now, which of these definitions is more fitting to what China actually is. They have a free market system, but business are beholden to the government. Whatever the party says goes. If the party tells them to install spyware into the computer chips they manufacture, they do so. Opposition to the party is disappeared. 2 million Muslims are in concentration camps and forcibly sterilized by the party. China believes it was the 1st empire and its going to “take its place” as the dominant empire of the world...Like I said, it’s time to stop calling China a communist country.
