I hate how they start from the assumption thar everyone in China wants be communist rather than the assumption that everyone in China is a human being who's mostly just concerned about their day-to-day lives. Like, you could flip this same arguments and say "You think you know better than the vast majority of Americans who approve of capitalists leaders over socialist ones?! How arrogant of you!" Like these approval numbers come from a place of "shit could certainly be more fucked up than it is." Like all approval numbers for governments. Its not the whole populous of China saying "yes, i've looked into this thoroughly, and we are *definitely* on a praxis towards a true socialist society."

You’re a western chauvinist for criticizing the CCP Also I know better than the CPP because they should surrender to duterte.


p4nd43z

actually the CPP is a cringe revisionist opportunist group because it opposes a drug war and the guy who started the drug war (who is also a puppet of US and Chinese Imperialism). What do you mean the working class supports them?


SkyComprehensive8012

Bro the CPP More like the CIA

Their party is probably full of genuine communists with zero careerists whatsoever Also Ludditeism had large support at one point, would it have been chauvinistic to oppose that?

In this case, states claiming that they need a dictatorship to achieve communism, but using excessively violent and suppressive means.

"The purposeless massacres perpetrated since the June and October events, the tedious offering of sacrifices since February and March, the very cannibalism of the counterrevolution will convince the nations that there is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terror." - Mao Zedong.


War_Crimer

so what's this exactly? Mao saying because the also deplorable and authoritarian Chiang Kai-shek shed blood it's OK for him to as well?


yrn1101

Oh, my bad. Marx said that, not Mao.


War_Crimer

yk this may be a wacky and wild idea but maybe we shouldn't fanatically follow every single idea Marx had like hardcore Christians do the Bible.


yrn1101

Wish we could but then Marxism isn't really an idea, is it?


Weirdo_doessomething

I mean, you surely can build on ideas and have your own opinions on them, right?


yrn1101

I don't think you people understand how Marxism works
