    Yes!


    Isn't it true that the Communist Party has in fact (if not in theory) repudiated Communism? I think so.

    According to our textbook, communism includes two stages; one is the initial stage -socialism, and the other is its mature stage-communism. Current Chinese government claims China is at its initial stage- socialism.

    Well, please allow me not to go further if you don't mind.

    The current capitalistic economy is communism?

    We can stop here if you want. The discussion is in danger of becoming too political for this forum.

    It seems a shame to end a discussion when it is going well, but when they go wrong, it's easy to see the reason for the rule. Shanghaidid look full-on capitalist but you didn't have to scratch far beneath to see that the system was very different from the capitalism we know.
