Anti-Imperialism/Foreign Policy

Should America Aspire To Be More Like China?

A Marxist-Leninist commie-worshiper makes his case for Xi Jinping’s neo-Maoism. To Western leftists who want to live under state-communism, I always say join the military where you are guaranteed a job and all your basic needs (food, shelter, clothes, healthcare) are provided. Or if the military is not your thing, then go to jail or prison.

China is a source of serf labor for Western corporations, cheap loans for US debt financing, and, nowadays, a test market for state repression (e.g. the “social credit” system). Although I agree with him when he discusses the relationship between US imperialism and China. If you look at a map of where US military bases on located in Asia and in the Pacific, it’s obvious that the objective is to encircle the countries where the US does not already have a direct military presence (e.g. Russia, China, Iran, etc. the ones that are merely provinces in global capitalism and direct satellites of the Empire).

I totally disagree with the faux Sinophobia that the right-wing of the ruling class is trying to capitalize on right now (as opposed to the faux Russophobia of the left-wing of the ruling class) but the Sinophilia and Russophilia of some on the far left (and a few on the far right) are just as ridiculous.

  1. I studied China for years, went there in 2008 for the olympics open to Maoist thought. Lived there for 5. During that time I learn to hate the state of both countries.

    China is unimaginable without living there. A ruling class above the law, but with an elementary school education. A working class living in 3rd world conditions, making $1.5 an hour, often illegally immigrated from other providences within same country.

    No law on the ground, pee on the street, no taxes, no safety nets. Die in squalor. In many real ways freer than the US police state, but only if you don’t get out of line.

    The elite would love this model. They can do ANYTHING they want. The lower classes formed into whatever need though total control over education, media and information. Scary dystopian shit.

  2. This guy is smoking crack. It’s like la la land. “No homeless” “No monopolies” “Workers in power”. You can tell he’s never been to a KTV where the ladies line up and you have your pick. Or maybe he has, and that’s why he’s talking like this….
