Have you read the Abolition of Work? Totally changed my thinking
I recommend Piotr Kropotkin and especially his work
“The conquest of bread”.
Bakounin, Proudhon etc
In the social vision of Kropotkin we all would work
from our 20s to our 40s some days of the year
for 4-5 hours daily in good working conditions,
it would be a contribution to our whole community,
and we would have free time for arts and sciences
The ideology of Communism is flawed because of the command economy which is derived from it. However, the one-party state government is what makes a country adopting this form of government successful such as the Communist Party of China.
China’s communism is not communism
It’s state capitalism, maybe but not socialist
Yes, China has reformed the government to be as the name terms “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics”. And yes again that the economy is state capitalism not a free market economy which is laisez faire capitalism.
Nowadays China officers, I had heard,
say that Mao was 70% right and 30% wrong
Many casualties from mao, millions,
but not intentionally
Those Chinese officers are probably correct. The “Great Leap Forward” and the “Cultural Revolution” stagnated the economy and starved many Chinese people.
During that time, the CPC just won the Chinese Civil War and were trying to establish themselves from World War 2 and the Japanese invasion.
I have read the history of chinese revolution and the civil wars between the communist party and kuomintang
The Chinese Civil War continues to this day thanks to the Kuomintang’s protectorate, the United States. Don’t be surprised if there is a military conflict between China and the US over Taiwan.
Chiang Kai shek was a traitor.
Cooperated with USA imperialists
That’s in the past now. The new enemy of the CPC & KMT is the DPP (Democratic Progressive Party) of whom forges Taiwan Independence.
Is there kuomintang still today?
