Dominator, unlike you, has experienced communism first-hand. Your knowledge of communism is theoretical. Ours is practical.Originally posted by Napoleon
They used to have a socialist economy, but since the 1970s they have been capitalizing their economy, and basically you are assuming that since capitalism beat out soviet socialism, that it would happen today too, which is kinda silly, since china is a very interesting hybrid.
Besides, you've managed to miss your own point,. China does not run its economy in a communist manner. It's not a communist state, nor is it an interesting hybrid. It's a capitalist state run by dictators who call themselves communists. And why did they turn to capitalism? Because - again, unlike you - they experienced communism first-hand, and they know how bad it is for the economy.
