China is as communist as my left shoe. Personally I don't think countries
can be
effectively communist. Communism doesn't survive a shift *beyond* democratic
accountability - all utopian ideals desintegrate in a totalitarian system.
But communism
is very useful in exerting pressure on a market that is totally out of
whack. It isn't
generally acknowledged but the current Chicago school economic models are
leading us into a giant mess.

It would be interesting to know what the Japanese communists think of

> happen) would mean an equal increase in support for a geopolitical

> efforts by the Chinese regime (or will be in the future).
