Possible Emergence of a Left Faction within the Communist Party of China

Post by Celtiberian on Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:01 am

Marxist political economist Miniqi Li (author of the excellent book The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World-Economy) speaks with Paul Jay of the Real News Network about a recent debate within the Communist Party of China, wherein an emerging Left faction is proposing a different model for Chinese economic development. Li also briefly discusses an encouraging Maoist mass movement gaining traction in China.

"The dogma of human equality is no part of Communism . . . the formula of Communism: 'from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs', would be nonsense, if abilities were equal."
—J. B. S. Haldane Hammer Sickle

"Nationality. . . is a historic, local fact which, like all real and harmless facts, has the right to claim general acceptance. . . Every people, like every person, is involuntarily that which it is and therefore has a right to be itself. . . Nationality is not a principle; it is a legitimate fact, just as individuality is. Every nationality, great or small, has the incontestable right to be itself, to live according to its own nature. This right is simply the corollary of the general principle of freedom."
—Mikhail Bakunin Red Star

It would be great not only for China but socialism in general if a socialist turn would happened there since China already went through the capitalist stage unlike in 1949, although i think that the probabilities are few of that turn happening.
