Introductory note by Fazal Rahman
In the article with the above link, Professor Petras, one of the most knowledgeable and eminent social scientists and political-economists in the world, has partially analyzed the Orwellian “Communism”; corruption in all layers of society; especially in the top level party, business, and government officials; and emergence of new class divisions; etc. in China.
It is obvious that China has achieved astounding economic, technological, and military development during the last few decades. However, it is also self-evident that it has sacrificed and betrayed socialism and communism in that process, which is clearly manifested in its domestic as well as international policies and realities. It is bending over backwards all the way to appease the current Godfather of capitalism and imperialism, the US of A, with which it has developed enormous trade, financial, and educational relations, stampeding over all the fundamental economic laws and processes, requirements, and principles of socialism and communism. Objectively, the current politico-economic system in China can only be describes as state capitalism, run by a state capitalist government and state capitalist party, still calling itself “Communist Party”! Chinese “Communism”, “Communist Party”, and “Socialism” are all phony and Orwellian.
