Alive n Kicking Ideologies of Corporate China

The lesson that China provides is simple, yet very revealing. True that the 
old guards of the left haven't had a say in decades, during which periods, 
puppets of free markets, like Jiang Zemin have only created a "privatized" 
communist party by allowing business houses to have a say in the country's 
governance. It's also true that the current president Hu Jintao has proved 
no better with his pro-market initiatives whereby China allows FDIs worth 
billions in its continued commitment to the World Trade Organization, the 
single biggest global testament of capitalism.

Alongside, Wen Jiabao, who can be called the Manmohan Singh of China, in 
that both the prime minister are famous for their constant adoration of a 
brand of liberalization that promotes national growth only to increase 
rich-poor divide, has also kept the official policies of China in line with 
free market than socialist economy.

Clearly it signals two things: after its official differences with the 
erstwhile Soviet Union following Khrushchev's denunciation of Stalin in 
early 60's and of the Soviet-Chinese border clash in the mid-60's 
(following Czech crisis), the US of A has grown to be a bigger player in 
determining Chinese future courses. It became apparent also recently with 
the unfolding of Nixon archives , where it was found that the US was 
clearly subverting the subcontinent region by playing China and Pakistan 
against India in Indira Gandhi's pro-Soviet decision to liberate 
Bangladesh. If not in relative types, in certain degrees more or less, the 
bipolar world (highly ideology driven, and entirely governed by 
conspirators who were no mythical then as active they are today) has 
continued to exist.
