China, 2nd to U.S. in Billionaires

17 04 2010

China, April 17th – Communist Capitalist China now has a total of 64 Billionaires in Mainland China, more than any other country besides the United States according to Forbes Magazine.

Since Deng Xiao Peng hijacked the helm in China’s Dictatorship of the Proletariat, he has mapped out a full plan to restore capitalism while paying socialism lip service- undoing the programs and campaigns of Mao Zedong’s cultural revolution as well the Great Leap Forward.

China - July 2009, Tonghua Steel Workers StrikerThe Cultural Revolution that allowed China to promote a popular culture of collectivity over individualism was decimated through time.  China would lose worker’s and peasant’s rights through the years and use the iconic people’s army to guard private industries against its own people.  As worker’s and peasant’s rights were plowed over for capital gains that has created a new threat to China’s people, strikes would blaze through the country such as last year’s Tongua Iron Steel Plant Strike where a manager fired its worker only to be beaten to death.  The boss who sent the manager was the 10th richest man in China.

Slogans like “Serve the People” meant to get intellectuals and Professionals to fully integrate their work to help the people are rarely practiced.  China is the new rising capitalist country ready to vie for power and resources against the current dominant United States.

As countries like China and United States duke it out to secure resources, costly wars will be averted with industrialize nations, however, nations such as Iraq, Palestine, India, and the Philippines will be used as battle grounds to absorb as much resource and profits as possible.

When countries like the United States go in deep recessions, all satellite colonies will be affected.  The only way to afford these costly wars of aggression, is to maintain the class struggle

China’s current rhetoric to make “our society fairer and more harmonious” is playing to deaf ears.  Since the fall of both the Great Leap Forward (Industrializing the Nation for social welfare) and the Cultural Revolution (promoting scientific mass orientated culture over individualism and profit) there has been no gains to democratic socialism in China and instead modern revisionism which has lead China to abandon socialism and follow the path of capitalism.

Strikes will continue to blaze through China, and the rich will continue to get rich while the poor suffer.  We have to remember there is always hope.

The Return of Concubines in China

18 09 2009

It’s not like Concubines suddenly left China and returned.  The changing make-up of the ever increasing fascist China Regime has overturned many accomplishments during the Cultural Revolution.  2 main benefits won with long and hard efforts by Chinese Communists during the time of Mao was abolishing the practice of footbinding and concubines.  Both practices were “ancient” feudal Chinese practices to limit the freedom of women.

ABC news reports that the citizens of China are upset at the rise of concubines amongst officials, those who have wealth.  However based on the interview, the citizens have ignored the real issue which is the reintroduction of capitalism.  The corrupt bureaucrat’s concubines are the one’s threatened with their lives when more education should be done with the people the root of the issue.  We can not blame the anger of the masses, however we should redirect the anger to promote a pro-people agenda.  Read the brief article here.

With the reintroduction of Capitalism, people’s rights are ever decreasing from the student free speech movement during 89′, to the large riots and rallies sparking around the country.  The youth generation are frustrated, workers are pissed, peasants are losing their land and ever so there is a need to reengage in dialogue, what was the purpose and the gains of the cultural revolution, and what should we do to gain our freedom back.   Read the rest of this entry »





Three Gorges Dam: Up the Yangtze and China’s Peasantry

14 04 2009

I was inspired to write this topic because another friend, Da had posted a blog about the environmental damages and affects of crops and livelihood of those who live near Kawabe River in Japan.  With the broad support of those within cities, the people were able to shut down the construction of the dam.

3 Gorgeous DamIn China, the 3 Gorges Dam was finished in 2008 on the Yangtze river despite the environmental impacts and broad support against the project.  The Chinese government had promised the 13,000 farmers affected along the Yangtze river relocation money but because of scandals and corruptions, they never saw their money.  More than 1 million Chinese peasants were displaced because of the project.

China, during the time of Mao and before his death, the level of education of peasants rose tremendously and the average life expectancy had doubled.  This is because education and health care was made available to those without the access and resources.  According to Dr. Pao Yu,

China is a large but resource poor and environmentally fragile country. It has very limited arable land and resources, which has to support a large population. Throughout Chinese long history, its people have suffered through many natural disasters such as flooding and draught. The reason behind the collectivization of agriculture was the understanding that Chinese people have to resolve the problem of poorly endowed natural resources and the fragile environment collectively. The strategy of development during the socialist period was that China’s rural areas and Chinese peasants had to be develop together with urban areas; peasants’ health, education and general living conditions had to be improved as much as possible together with that of the workers and other urban dwellers. Base on the alliance between workers and peasants, China before the Reform went a long way in advancing agricultural production and modernization by preserving and improving the land and the environment. That model of development was proven to be sustainable in the long-term. Read the rest of this entry »
