1. China is capitalist now.
There's NOTHING socialist about the place anymore, and there hasn't been for years.

even get a visa to visit USA. They have to prove to their
government that they own x amount of real-estate and have
x amount of money in bank. Freedom is a scarce commodity
in China and people are controlled by the Politburo.

5. I said China was CAPITALIST. I didn't say it was free.
Freedom and capitalism have nothing to do with each other.

China is a free-market police state, with red flags for camouflage.

6. Yep, pretty much.
They've got more in common these days with Mussolini than Marx.

2. HAHA I was just in Shanghai and a police car came at me and I thought.. where am I gonna run.
It is an authoritarian imperialistic society. Never ever forget that.

And the food sucks.

And they don't know who Troksky is. Or how to spell his name. Like I don't.
