“I read a lot of articles online … and have developed this adoration of Mao Zedong thoughts, and a strong attraction to socialism in Mao’s era,” Yu told the Post in a telephone interview.
“So I have begun to understand and learn more about Mao Zedong … and made friends with a few young people who love red culture,” he said referring to leftist ideas. “I feel proud of what I did … and it would be an honour if I have to go to jail for promoting Mao’s thoughts, which are about equality for everyone and [are] being embraced by a lot of people now.” Deng Yuwen, a former editor of Study Times, an official of the Communist Party’s top academy, said the sentencing showed that Beijing would not tolerate ultra-leftists if they went too far and their actions were deemed to be destabilising before the party’s all-important national congress expected to be held later this year. “It’s very clear that Beijing would not allow the ultra-leftists, or the liberals, to undermine the regime’s stability,” said Deng, who is now based in the United States and is an independent researcher on China’s politics.

Maoists never founded any state. Mao, Hoxha, Kim Il-Sung, Ho chi Minh, Fidel Castro, etc were MLs who later developed their own theories. Mao's own theories were known as Mao Zedong Thought. Maoism (MLM) wasn't a thing until years after his death, it was founded by Peruvian communists in the 80s. I'm guessing most of the hate against maoists on this board lately is against adherents of chairman Gonzalo (leader of the Shining Path).

They took the grand Marxist system of thought, based on logical conclusions, brought it into the pure abstract real only to blend it in order to accomodate their wishful thinking. A hundred of different Marxisms were created and destroyed the movement of change reducing it into a parody of itself.

They also say that China's growth rate increased after the market reforms. They choose either dependent on whether they need to bash China or praise the markets. Reality, though, shows a DIFFERENT kind of growth was achieved with the market reforms, all the while planned part of the economy - SOEs - never slowed their growth rates from Mao's period.

Unless I misread the rules of Leftypol, their is nothing that says you can’t oppose Dengist China, which makes sense considering the vast majority of the Far-Left (Maoists, Hoxhaists, Trotskyists, Left Communists, and Anarchists) is Anti-Dengist, with the only tendency that is an exception to this being Revisionist “Marxist-Leninists”. It’s also worth noting that in response to my recent Six-week ban I have adopted more rational stances on Covid-19, Climate Change, and LGBTQIA+ issues. Finally it is maximum hypocrisy to accuse a historical me of supporting the U$ Imperialist puppet “Solidarity” movement that was supported by Dengist China itself, LOL.

All the tendencies I listed are universally considered to be on the Far-Left of the political spectrum, and with the exception of the Revisionist “Marxist-Leninists” (parties that are members of the IMCWP, the so-called Revisionist “International”, most of which are either Crypto-Liberal or Crypto-Fascist), all these tendencies are Anti-Dengist, with Maoists being the only tendency currently waging Armed Revolution against Capitalism (the Protracted People’s Wars in India, The Philippines, Turkey, and Peru). Finally, by parroting all of the U$ foreign policy stances during the late Cold War (to the point that they were under the U$ Nuclear umbrella), Dengist China for all intents and purposes was on the same side as and indirectly aiding the Polish Solidarity movement the helped collapse the Eastern Bloc.

What do you mean by the "news" exactly? Please tell me how SCMP isn't part of the "news". Sure, it isn't Western MSM, which is purely about spreading the most blatant lies and slander about China, but it definitely represents a right deviation within Chinese society. Ffs it's based in Hong Kong and is owned by Alibaba Group. Tell me, will Jack Ma lead the Maoist revolt and institute a 2nd Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution? Left deviationists right deviationists - one struggle against currently existing socialism.
Anyway, the same kind of news about the Chinese government arresting "Maoists" was circulated by outlets like BBC some time ago. I put the "Maoist" in quotation marks because this could literally mean everyone to the left of the current CPC party line. Mao has always remained a greatly respected figure both in Chinese politics and general society and the CPC still upholds Mao Zedong Thought and displays his picture on Tiananmen Square. Will the members of the Chinese government start arresting themselves because they are upholding a political regime which still holds Mao in great regard?
<Deng Yuwen, a former editor of Study Times, an official mouthpiece of the Communist Party’s top academy, said the sentencing showed that Beijing would not tolerate ultra-leftists if they went too far and their actions were deemed to be destabilising before the party’s all-important national congress expected to be held later this year. <“It’s very clear that Beijing would not allow the ultra-leftists, or the liberals, to undermine the regime’s stability,” said Deng, who is now based in the United States and is an independent researcher on China’s politics.
Again, the Chinese government isn't jailing people who support Mao. They are jailing people who openly attack the party line, whether from the left or the right. And keep in mind that this party line has definitely shifted to the left, with "Maoists" being given a certain space and a role to attack libshits who have infested Chinese society. Chinese academia for example went through a thorough cleansing of these dangerous liberal elements. Obviously you still can't attack the party line as a leftist, but looking at the way things currently stand the position of this line will keep shifting to the left.
If you haven't realized already, the enemies of socialism will keep directly attacking socialism and at the same time empower people who are pretending to be defenders of socialism who attack real socialism for not confirming to their ideas. See for example Chuang, the authentic voice of Chinese proletariat run by a white anarchist from Seattle who uses flowery leftcom language to attack Chinese socialism and publishes articles written by literal glowies about the so called "Uyghur genocide". Just like how back in the day Khruschev's slandering of Stalin was happily accepted by revisionists inside the socialist bloc and by eurocoms and virulent anti-communists in the West.

To be honest, it’s not that my stance has really changed that much but the combination of the fact that I don’t want to get banned (The mods explicitly stated “Covid denial” was a reason for my bans) and I’ve grown sick of the topic (The Virus/Vaccine debate has gotten rather “Old Hat” to me) and would rather discuss more interesting things, LOL.

Only around 7% of China's population are CPC members, so even if it's decided upon democratically among the party members, this doesn't really amount to much from the perspective of the working class and peasantry as a whole. It certainly doesn't mean that party should be exempt from criticism from the general population and especially other communists.

Then why are they throwing Maoists in jail? Defenders of China's policy in this very thread have described it in this way here
>>689492 >Again, the Chinese government isn't jailing people who support Mao. They are jailing people who openly attack the party line
So in other words, the party line is determined "democratically" by a small portion of the population, and people who attack that line are then thrown jail.

Is China reactionary for opposing the Soviet Union then? Moreover, what constitutes "opposition"? According to the article in OP these Maoists were arrested for writing articles critical or some of China's past leaders. You really think this warrants imprisonment? I would say that writing critical articles isn't nearly as bad as sending weapons to anti-communist terrorists like China did in the 80s.

The Soviet Union was knee deep in the pocket of capital following Stalin's assassination and the Khrushchev coup, so just the opposite; sticking with the Soviet Union after that point would have been an act of treason towards the working class. And yes, I'd say attempts to destabilize the state are worthy of imprisonment, no matter how ineffectual it is. If someone plans to crash a plane into a building, they get punished for it no matter how far along on their plan they are, so too with sedition like this.

Why did the USSR continue to back communist and national liberation movements around the world? Why did China back openly anti-communist groups and regimes like the Mujahideen, UNITA, and Pinochet?
>And yes, I'd say attempts to destabilize the state
So you consider all criticism to be destabilization? China really must be fragile if a few articles post an existential threat to its stability.

If they are throwing people in jail for making Maoist criticisms of Chinese leaders then they are in practice persecuting Maoists in general, at least if they express their critiques of Chinese capitalism. Repressing a political movement for expressing its critiques is the same as repressing it as a whole.

Although I agree, I'm also interested in how the Chinese government deals with these issues. Rebelliousness is a core value of leftists everywhere. Mao specifically called it out as a positive value too.
Now that a socialist government is in power, how does one deal with rebelliousness?
Rebelliousness in a democratic centralist organization is outright destructive and wrecker behavior.
Rebelliousness in the Chinese state? On one hand, the Chinese government is single handedly making the US shit its pants, but on the other, there is still a big room for improvement in work conditions. And China is arguably a huge democratic centralist org, from what I understand.

Allowing criticism of a socialist government by its own citizens doesn't weaken it, it strengthens it. It allows non-antagonistic contradictions to be brought into the open and resolve peacefully and to mutual benefit, instead of sweeping them under the rug where they fester and become antagonistic contradictions that can turn violent.

It depends exactly on the type of criticism. For instance if the criticism over exaggerates, is uninformed, paranoid and or nonsensical and a bunch of people are allowed to say it then all you have is a recipe for long term disaster. Additionally if the criticism is things like we want political liberalization but the lib kind then in the long term that will accumulate and destroy the party.
Also if the criticism is supported by let's say regional cliques and or etc then we have a recipe for fictionalized based on region grounds or etc

Why exactly? People spout crazy nonsense all the time, 99% of the time nobody believes it. Should we arrest every homeless guy and tinfoil hat yelling about lizard people and the NWO? Opposition to a set of policies or a government can only manifest itself in a significant way if it acts as an expression of real contradictions, otherwise it's just some rando screaming into the void. Happy, well fed people aren't going to revolt against a socialist government just because somebody tells them to, they will only do so if their own experience indicates that the current order harms their interests to an unacceptable degree. If criticism resonates with large numbers of people, and metastasizes into a large scale political movement, then this is a symptom of deeper social contradictions in need of resolution. Obviously I'm not saying everything should be tolerated, but we have to distinguish between criticism that is the product of antagonistic contradictions (us and the enemy) and non-antagonistic contradictions (among the people). This is Mao's own formula. Tolerating and listening to the latter is not only an essential component of a healthy proletarian democracy, but actually strengthens the state in the long term. It helps it to establish the broadest possible hegemony, and give the largest possible segment of the population a stake in the active support of the existing state. To China's credit I actually think they're pretty good at this, at least when it comes to shit like people's everyday needs in regards to employment, infrastructure, the pandemic, etc. Of course there's always room for improvement, which I think the case of these Maoists shows. As a general rule however, the strongest state is one which is able to exist as the broadest possible synthesis of disparate interests, and this necessarily requires that these interests be free to work out their contradictions peacefully, in the open, through compromise and democracy.
>Additionally if the criticism is things like we want political liberalization but the lib kind then in the long term that will accumulate and destroy the party.
Are Maoists demanding political liberalization of the lib kind? Something tells me no.
>Also if the criticism is supported by let's say regional cliques and or etc then we have a recipe for fictionalized based on region grounds or etc
Again, there often exist contradictions between regional interests, but these are generally non-antagonistic. Why then is it a bad thing for people to express their discontent with how their region is treated if this is unfair? In my own country my home region is relatively rural and underdeveloped, and we are often neglected by the cosmopolitan urban centres. Should we not be allowed to express these grievances? There will be no danger of regional separatism or similar problems if the central government is attentive and responsive to the needs of the people of every region, if it allows them to voice their concerns, hold their leaders accountable, etc. Again, I'll concede that China is actually pretty good at dealing with this, but I'm speaking more abstractly here.

Why should democratic centralism apply to non party members? Why should be people who didn't get a vote in determining party policy at the congress have to abide by policy decisions they had no say in creating? Democratic centralism was a policy that emerged among the Bolsheviks, who were a heavily repressed and censored party operating illegally in one of histories most brutally autocratic societies. Obviously it's an appropriate policy for such difficult conditions. However I don't see why it necessarily needs to be maintained once that party is in power, especially in a country like China where the political base of the state is extremely secure and the party is massively popular.

Because otherwise people don't know why decisions are being made.
No participation, no reading, no stake, no investigation, means no vote or say.

To keep political unity and stability and to discourage division. However while ultimately they should follow the party line they should at the same time be allowed to critic the party line too. They should be allowed some degree of voice hell in china too while the minority parties are chained they are often allowed to critic the main party so to offer an alternative perspective

Also yes while people often say stupid things allowing such stupid things to continue to be allowed is going to lead to dangerous situatioj. Branded America is an example of this. As such we need to limit and suppress the bad critics so the population doesn't get dumbed down by it.
Also there are liberals in china who want liberalization. These people are bigger than you think

Do the bourgeoisie in liberal democratic countries ultimately not have political unity? Do they not manage this despite having multiple parties and factions within those parties? Political divisions are always an expression of divergent material interests. Suppressing the political expression of these interests does not make them go away, it just makes it more difficult to work them out constructively. Moreover the force which carries out this suppression can never itself stand above or outside these divisions.
>Also yes while people often say stupid things allowing such stupid things to continue to be allowed is going to lead to dangerous situatioj
And how can that be the case unless these stupid criticisms nevertheless speak to people's dissatisfaction and grievances? Shouldn't the focus be on remedying these instead of punishing people for bringing them up?

No dude. Imagine I bust into your workplace and start telling people how to do their job. There is a very low chance I'll give them good directions. Whereas, if I study their behavior and integrate into the team I'd be able to make better suggestions.
What I'm suggesting is very basic. If you want your vote to count, then get involved. Otherwise you have no idea what's going on and you're voting based on no knowledge of the subject matter.

Yes and i agree there are legitimate criticisms that cause these people to critic which is why the problems should be addressed, I'm not against this. If the critic is good then follow upon it and fix it and if the critic is bad suppress it but figure out why the problem emerged in the first place. Punisher suppress bad criticism to show the people what is just nonsense while at the same time listening to good actual criticism which will eventually go to the actual reason why the bad criticism emerged in the first place
Also for your other point yes but if we look at these borg states they are often highly dysfunctional. Sure they might address certain issues efficiently but 80 or 90 percent of the time they don't operate that well. And it's on purpose because by purposely creating a system of faction you create a system of very weak gov. Where your pawns or enemies are absolutely divided with each other and thus they can't act against you. After all a highly weak state domestic wise can't regulate against big power corporations.
We should not apply a system that was purposely created to be weak with factionalism and thus non functional to a socialist state since that would be bad

This isn't a workplace Anon, it's a state, and an allegedly proletarian, socialist one at that. Political participation needs to be extended to every citizen (or at least every prole/peasant), that's how a democracy works. You're essentially arguing for relegating the majority of people to disenfranchised second class citizens.
>What I'm suggesting is very basic. If you want your vote to count, then get involved.
Why are you assuming that not being a party member means you aren't informed about the issues, or don't have the capability to advocate for your own interests?

And how do you differentiate between the two? How do you differentiate between bad faith and ignorance? How do you prevent this from being abused, with legitimate criticism being simply labeled as "bad criticism" etc?

Pretty weird how "highly dysfunctional" states managed to subjugate the entire world for centuries.

Dysfunctional in domestic issues but not in foriegn. However let me explain. These borg states created these very weak state that can't act against borg interest but if it's for borg interest they can work. And thats the point they were made weak to challenge interests. After all if one faction is used to prevent legislation or anything in the us case the gov stops functioning and the legistilation doesn't pass. Aka the gov is easily weakened to such a degree that pokie can use one faction to protect its interests so to stop gov from doing shit unless it's for porker interests
Now consider this system where interests can be easily protected by the using of factions to prevent things passing that go against certain groups interest and apply that to a socialist country with regional urban or etc factions that want to protect their interest. It's not gonna end well
And for the had criticism well some bad criticism is obvious like hypothetical covid is made in a lab or really absurd shit, but yeah I cam see what you are trying to say and I need to think about it
This is what i mean by weak gov

Well of course, these are bourgeois states were are talking about here. However in terms of reconciling various bourgeois interests which are sometimes in opposition to one another, liberal democracy is pretty effective. What I'm saying is that the existence of multiple factions or parties engaging with one another openly can accomplish the same task for workers and peasants, allowing them to resolve contradictions amongst themselves constructively.
>After all if one faction is used to prevent legislation or anything in the us case the gov stops functioning and the legistilation doesn't pass.
That's a relatively recent phenomenon, in the past both parties were able to pass legislation that balanced the interests of various bourgeois factions pretty effectively, and most liberal countries are still able to do this.
