Rakesh,

I agree with most of your posting and one of the things I think any
future socialist society must do is guarantee full reproductive control
and freedom for women without loss of job and full maternity/paternity
rights.

However, China is not a good example of anything.  It is not grounded on
collectivist principles  - workers do not own the land or have control
over any industry.  They also do not have  control over their bodies......

I think this is a very important issue for socialists to address.  For
instance what happens in a socialist world if we have so many people we
can't feed them all?
