Zhang Yan — Xi's thought a development of Marxism

Marx gets and update with Chinese characteristics.
In contemporary China, guided by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the scientificity and truthfulness of Marxism has been fully tested, its people-oriented approach fully implemented, and its openness and epochal character fully manifested. Xi's thought therefore is a development of Marxism, which is applicable to today's China.

There was some guy saying on YouTube that China was unstoppable, so I clicked into it and he was a libertarian going on and on about the people in the West who don't want to work and are on welfare. He said that in China there are no government run state schools, no welfare, no social security, no state healthcare, nothing.

Well, I didn't agree with him about how a society should be run, but I hope China does eventually create a social safety net for it's people. I have read that they have been debating about whether to have a state run healthcare system at some stage if they can afford it. Lets hope they one day they get it.

Both Russia and China are now focused on improving the standard of living, ending poverty, and growing the middle class. Putin seems to be emulating Xi in setting these objectives for the near-term — Xi's five year plan and China 2025. and Putin's coming term as president.

The US and West will do everything possible to prevent the rising competition on the world stage in order to maintain dominance based on "Western exceptionalism."

I have read how China wants to increase domestic demand do it does not need to rely on exports to the West so much.

The Chinese are naturally collective and if they are genuine about their Marxism (with Chinese characteristics - which means it doesn't have to be communism), they could end up with a really nice society.

I hope so, I hope they can present an alternative and fairer system to the world.
