still another blown opportunity…//Revolution, capitalist restoration and class struggle in China 

Still another demonstration of the way marxist thinking as a legacy induces lost opportunities to transform society, here the dismal example of China.

The US should lead the way to postcapitalism: its ‘democratic’ legacy, however illusory, might help to forestall the idiocy of communist cadres with no blueprint to guide them….
