Having read Karl Marx, and seeing the 10 tenets of Communism, I find it hard to consider China as a Communist country.
Just trying to stick to the 10 tenets.
- Abolition of private property, everything is public.
- Progressive Tax.
- Abolition of rights inheritance.
- Confiscation of property of all emigrants and rebels.
- Centralization of all credit in the hands of the state.
- Communication and Transportation in the hands of the state.
- Factories and instruments of production owned by the state.
- Equal obligation of all to work.
- Abolition between distinction of town and country by equable distribution of population over land.
- Abolition of child labor; child rights to education; education combined with industrial production.
I mean as I go down the list I only see China doing a few of these things, and blatantly doing the opposite in other ways.
I know that these tenets aren't the end all be all of communism - but should be considered nonetheless.
