Would someone please think of China’s billionaire elites who we now care about all of a sudden!!?!? 😭😭
This article is pretty important as far as I’m concerned. I’ve been very careful not to simply take the rhetoric of the Chinese government at face value; I’ve made a point of cautiously judging them off the back of their actual actions instead. I think after these recent developments, no one can possibly deny that the Chinese government is in fact a dictatorship of the proletariat. Under no circumstances would a bourgeois dictatorship have imposed itself over its own ruling class in this way, to the point where its driving them all to become emigres, rats jumping off a ship they think is sinking. This is the behaviour of the defeated Russian Whites or the Cuban Gangster class scrambling over the sea to Miami.
When someone holds out their hand and assures you they’re your friend you should rightfully be cautious before taking it, but when your enemies rant and rave about how evil they are, you can rest assured they’re on your side.
My thoughts exactly, the fact that capitalists are unhappy and some are actually leaving China clearly shows that they’re not getting their way.
I know what you mean. For me personally, seeing that China is actually committed to socialism, and isn’t just doing some weird capitalism thing wrapped in a red flag, has been the biggest but most welcome surprise of my political life.
No but bro, they have a McDonald’s /s
I mean, fair. McDonald’s is a crime against food the way adult anarchists are a crime against turning 14.
The absolute horror, being too depressed to work because the grifter class might not be able to freely exploit the working class anymore in the future and drowning your sorrow by going golfing and drinking.
My favorite part is how NYT expects the readers to sympathize with these parasites.
that entire paragraph is an unintentional parody
Yeah, I’m just left wondering what I have to do to catch this political depression bug. Apparently, my depression isn’t political enough or something.
Tbf having to play golf is against the geneva conventions
or at least it should be
I also like that the big problem with zero-covid was that a lot of businesspeople lost a lot of money!!! oh no!!!
What an amazing detatchment. I have no sympathies.
These guys knew – or should have known – that they were temporary, and that the Party was going to phase them out eventually. If they were worried about “political depression,” whatever that is, they should have gotten a real job.
Political depression is when you go hiking, drinking, and playing golf instead of working. 😔 Worst condition ever.
If they can escape the ongoing Great Golf Genocide – thoughts and prayers!
When golfers flee the Great Golf Genocide will western countries let their ships sink rather than let them in?
Oh no, the world lost an exceptionalist patriot! The horror!
Is exceptionalism a big issue in China?
Meanwhile the Proletariat have to continue with their (often literally) back breaking labor, despite depression or near damn any other ailment, simply to survive.
Why does the CPC even keep these clowns around?
Western bourgeoisie provide the best pro-CPC propaganda.
“Wont somebody think of those poor-poor rich Billionares ?!?!??” 😭😭😭😭
Anyone got a version of this that isn’t paywalled?
you can use the addon bypass paywalls. There is also a chrome version available on github.
Brilliant! Thank you so much.
Thank you NYT for inadvertently providing ammo to use against ultras.
Aren’t there several billionaires in the general secretariat?
Apparently I misremembered and it was “party members”, not leadership. Here.
So the party with over 96 million member has a handful of billionaires in it who are not in any leadership positions.
Why are they there to begin with?
You’ve moved goal posts quite a bit at this point. I don’t think capitalists should have any representation, but I also don’t know what internal contradictions China has that led to the decision of allowing capitalists within the government.
I think I’ve heard that the CPC sometimes recruits or installs members into shareholder/boardmember positions if they want to keep an eye on or reign in a private company. I don’t have a source though so take it with a grain of salt.
Pretty much a mask off moment, they are now explicitly calling for the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie
It’s disappearing time! For real.

Oh no… Capitalists getting clapped? 🥺
bursts through brick wall, jolly, filled to brim with the blood of golfers
I feel like they honestly and truly misunderstand exactly who has/is the power in a socialist nation. This one paragraph sums up how bourgeois ruled society sees everything as being “allowed” by their hands. They see the corrections of corruption that had been allowed to spread as being “evil”. Private companies and the rich that own said companies aren’t the “good guys” here. It was them that were and have been “allowed” to function by the party of the masses. I hope we see working examples of how other post industrial nations can begin to be moved to socialism come out of China.
Westoids are incapable of understanding causal relationships and bourgeois media only cares about private property rights (except if you’re Russian, then stealing your yacht is fair game).
