He is a modern capitalistic minded Communist.

I think he's still very much collectively minded about many issues but he is also very flexible in his views according to his biography. He doesn't deny the luxuries he's enjoyed while he's become famous and EARNS playing for the NBA.

Top Bloke... AT one stage Aussie gov't banned this Communist Party... I think it was in the 50's or 60's... hm... :twisted:

pure communist ideology has been on the out for the last 20-30 years in China.

The current "communist" government of china is communist in name only.
Its policies can be best summed up as being nationalistic.
In that the main source of legitmacy has (and pretty always been) chinese nationalism. Its a BIG myth in western countries that the chinese supported the communist party because it like marxist ideas.
Chinese ppl supported the communist because was they won defended and fought the japanese in WW2. It was the Chinese communists and red Army who stood up against American aggression in Korea and vietnam.

It was the "communist" chinese government which won back all (except taiwan) of chinese terriories (Hong Kong, Macao, etc etc( stolen by the foreign imperialists.
THese sorts of things weigh deeply on the minds of most chinese ppl when they say they support their government.

chuck, I agree that communist china is communist in name only.


your comments about communist party popularity also makes sense, but i'm wondering where you are getting this information from regarding public opinion and what weighs heavily in their minds and what does not?


Also, do you know what the majority of mainland Chinese think about the rampant corruption among Communist Party Leaders?

D!ckhead, the communist did not win against the Japanese. For the most part, they stood on the sidelines and waited for the KMT to exhaust their resources fighting the Japanese, and then after the war, overthrew the KMT.

No ur the idiot, its a HISTORICAL FACT that the communists did most of the fighting against japan.
Its the reason the communists got their ground swell of support from the peasants of the country side.

The communists PERSAUDED the peasants to fight for them out of nationalist pride. The kmt was largley nowhere to be found.
Chiang was in Chungking stockpiling weapons and planning to for post-war dealings ... EVEN Before the war was over. Madame Chiang was jetsetting across the USA begging the Uncle Sam for help, at a time when chinese still couldnt use "whites only" toilets and bus seatings.


I know ur from taiwan. But stop reading taiwanese history books. Heck, READ AMERICAN history books! Even the american, british and australians historicans tell that the communists did most of the fighting.

Heck, Chiang prefered fighting his fellow chinese than the japanese invaders. His own kmt generals had to kipnapp Chiang and basically put a gun to his head to force Chiang to fight the japanese.

Put out some facts to back up your claim, because no histroy book in the right mind, even American one's, discredit the Chinese Communists from defending the homeland...

It was the Chinese nationalists who fought the hardest to defend China from the Japanese...the Red army was a HUGE FACTOR, like Communism or not, but it was the Nationalists who had better weapons, mostly from the Allies (US, UK, etc.)
