China is doing this good because of all the capitalism they have allowed to bleed into the country. If it wasnt for capitalist powerhouses like american corporations, they wouldnt have gone anywhere. (made in china) became such a widespread meme for a reason. The retarded usa keeps outsourcing labor and establishing factories in china, companies like apple "fight opression" on pride day but employ hundreds of child workers or underpaid slaves in their factories. Not only that, chains like mcdonalds, google and apple establish there as well. Dont forget when people in the usa consoom chinese software goods like tik tok and videogames despite being malicious, all the money effectively goes to the communist party. The way I see it, nobody in any society can create true equality ever, its been a rule in human societies since the beginning. Power, and wealth cant be distributed equally, there can never be more than a minority of leaders. So, china effectively (maybe not academically) has psuedo communism, if anything from what ive seen they are communist in culture and government, but when they use ali baba to rake in massive profits by selling to consumers over seas, i dont really consider them true communists. They definitely owe their growth to capitalism, which is ironic. Also, I agree when you say china is evil, and you are right, capitalism aint no different. I just would prefer 30k a year living in the suburbs over living just like that or worse, not being able to choose my job and if I work at all, and being put to death I speak up about anything I dont like, let alone share it publicly. Whether or not its better, you have to admit capitalism innately grants more freedoms than communism does.
