China and it’s idea of communism is slowly evolving!
Xi Jinping recently announced that he likes to put his faith in the Chinese dream: but what is it? To put it simply it is an ideology that firmly follows the foundations of Chinese Communist culture: the ruling party of China was established in 1921 and under the leadership of Mao Zedong they pursued heavy development, with the help of industries and extra income from peasants.
Mao grew his own brand of Communism and called it Maoism. Too much industrialization to grow China eventually sacrificed many to starvation but his boldness in hunting his enemies is still worth appreciating. China today is interested in modernism and preserving it’s classical traditions. The Chinese Communist Party wants to see itself as one of the dominant powers in the world of politics but that is so tough to do.
Once humiliated as an independent nation and after falling into poverty from riches, now it is littered with fast trains and statues of Confucius. Traditionally, it is tough to comprehend how much Xi wants to preserve the past and grow the Chinese state despite his chants about family roles and individualism and its positive relationship with China.
Mao was influential in protecting his country from outside influence, such as that from Japan and the West – they could not control as many ports as before! But his industrialization efforts also gave rise to famine and poor agriculture harvesting. Although, the wonders of Marxism cannot be spoken enough off and what it did to identify ‘the struggles of numerous classes’, it is always tentative steps or too much industrialization, sans sufficient risk assessment that greets you over national interpretations of Communism in various states.
