30 Years?

Why do most of the regular Chinese posters here continue to laud the govt for tehir successes over the last thirty years?

Indeed, the economic development has been spectacular. some work obviously still needs to be done.

The CPC has been in power for the last 60 YEARS.

Is it because the suggestion that China has come so far in the LAST  60 YEARS, and not 30 years, brings up reas of discussion they would rather forget.

I mean, it was the CPC in charge during that time, wasn't it? It seems the CPC only want the people to remember their successes and they are hoping the younger generations (who did not experience the earlier years) will not hold them to account for their not so successful early period.

Because the reforms started 30 and NOT 60 years ago.   Just in case you forgot it.

Once again, because the first 30 years had no reforms or what we understand about reforms today. Capito?

Satsu says it's because the reforms started only 30 years ago.

We all know, however, that things were going BACKWARDS in the previous 30 years, things had to change.
So they tossed true socialism out the door and reformed to what looks like a badly unregulated and corrupt version of capitalism.
Economic growth has of course improved, and while the ordinary urban folk's life has improved, the gap between them and the well connected filthy rich has grown even more.

And now we see the same mob, who were to blame for the backwardness of the early years of the PRC, congratulating and praising themselves for reforming the economy 30 years late !

It has nothing to do with the thread but I found it funny. In todays debate on BBC (World Economic Forum) one of the participants said:

In China we've socialism with Chinese characteristics, in the USA we now have capitalism with Chinese characteristics.
