"What is socialism? It is socialism when the people feel happy" -- Wu Renbao, party secretary of Huaxi Village, the richest (or one of the richest) villages in China.

This farmer's definition speaks the essence.

That farmer speaks nonsense. Socialism is redistribution of wealth, nothing more, nothing less. Usually by taxes. But there is no such redistribution in China. You need to pay fees to go to school. You need to pay fees to get medicare. That is not socialism. Thus, China is not and never was a socialist state.

Let's not distort terms and definitions. Socialism is socialism. Happiness is happiness. They have nothing in common.

Chinese people are extremely quick to judge Japan and the Japanese when so few have actually been there.


i don't think that would help, mencius.  from everything i've heard, japanese are pretty chauvinistic when it comes to other asians, especially chinese, in their country.

thanks for writing it well, chrissun;  that pushed the bile down a bit which would have spilled out onto the fineries of a couple of apologists and flamebaiters around in these threads who seem to think their yardsticks and standards are the best measures for China when their credentials are no bigger than a spider's arse.  We have seen them before last year when the forum was old; they've spilled into the new format;  sour wine in new bottle.
