Man, China is ascending at a meteoric pace meanwhile capitalist nations boast about a political system that platforms and signal boosts far-right reactionaries like it is some kind of a plus-point.

The world doesn’t appreciate yet how advanced China’s political system is. Hopefully at some point the truth will.overpower the lies.

Yeah, I think the key difference is that Chinese system has proven itself to be much more flexible and dynamic. It’s seen rapid evolution and adjustments using scientific method of creating hypothesis, testing them, and adjusting based on results.

This is completely counter to western narrative that one party systems are rigid dictatorships. Having a single party simply means that the country agrees on pursuing a single ideology, and that frees the government to actually start implementing this ideology at scale.

Meanwhile, multiparty systems are still in the process of debating what ideology to pursue and are unable to do any long term planning. When a party gets in power and starts making advancements, they eventually get voted out by party that has a different vision and pulls in a different direction. Because you have many parties pulling things in different directions you end up with the lowest common denominator. Thus your political system is not able to evolve or meet big challenges.

In a multi party system when a party gets voted in with the promise of bringing some kind of change for the masses, more often than not they just get blocked by opposition. It’s just a way of maintaining the status quo.

You’ll find that people in capitalist countries cannot imagine a single party system being democratic. Their conception is based on two things mostly. First is that they cannot imagine being an agent in their governance. For them politics and the ruling party are things that exist in complete dissociation with their being. Second is that not only do they know nothing about China’s governance (also of other socialist experiments), they label them as undemocratic without doing any investigation.

It’s one of the many reasons that even in this day and age I cannot see electoralism as a way achieving socialism without establishing any form of dual power.

I completely agree. This discussion I got into on twitter is a perfect illustration of what you’re talking about.

China’s system is efficient because there’s no opposition and the government has the legal powers to do anything.

Move to China, you are free to.

Not really, getting citizenship is very difficult and the language is very hard to learn. If not for that I would’ve moved a long time ago.

You’re not lol, you can’t just waltz into there like you own the place. If you want to live in China you’ll need permanent residency, and for that there are very strict conditions. You could have: made direct investments in the Chinese economy for 3 years, found a full-time job at the level of an assistant manager or factory director, made an outstanding contribution to China, been a minor or moved back to China to take care of your elderly parents (family reunification).

China is out there eradicating covid-19 and building space stations and marvels of architecture, and here we’re ecstatic if GDP grows by 2% a year.
