The Chinese Communist Party, with ninety-two (92) million members, manages and controls the world’s second largest economy. It was the President of China and great reformer Deng Xiaoping (1979) who, with the support of the great neoliberal economist Milton Friedman, opened China’s markets to the Capitalist world, erasing Mao Zedong’s ideologies about Cultural Revolution (The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution) (1966-1976).
Dieng Xiaoping’s foreign investment reforms have put China on the roadmap for rapid economic growth, making major infrastructure projects feasible.

In 1989, demonstrations in Tiananmen Square where the Chinese army killed hundreds if not thousands of protesters showed that economic reforms were not accompanied by political reforms to combat inequality.
The ideology of the Chinese Communist Party is “socialism with Chinese characteristics.” We are essentially talking about a modification of the Marxist-Leninist ideology which is literally not a new system but a critique of capitalism.
The words “… ..Chinese characteristics” adapt the Communist ideology, constituting the shell, its protection from the reality that is the full adoption of the capitalist system.
For the capitalist system to function fully in any economy, the views on workers ‘rights and the workers’ unions must disappear, respectively.
While the largest companies in China are state-owned, private companies are closely aligned with the federal-central government of the country, as all private companies have members of the Communist Party of China, even foreign multinationals operating in China.
In essence, the private sector follows the public sector, always under the supervision and control of the state.
Nationalism remains an essential element in the Communist Party of China, as Taiwan is considered by China to be a breakaway province of China, which will sooner or later be integrated (according to official Chinese views) into Chinese territory.
In this way the Communist Party of China would have completely prevailed over the nationalists by successfully completing (in the views of the Communist Party of China) the “unofficially informal” civil war in China that officially lasted (1927-1949).
It goes without saying that the hegemony and longevity of the Communist Party of China in power must be based on full control of the country’s armed forces, the media, the process of controlling and leading party members in ministries, hospitals, universities, and simultaneous coexistence of control of a strong monitoring network of the citizens of the country.
In China today, individuals can own personal property, be allowed to keep their profits, and employment contracts (employment contracts between employees and companies) now show that the means of production do not belong to the state and the people, as he usually says in Its “core” is Marxist-Communist ideology, indirectly overthrowing Communist ideology and what it stands for.
The ever-increasing social prosperity of an increasing percentage of the Chinese population further reinforces the longevity of the Communist Party of China, which has deliberately chosen not to undertake political reforms, making its members, regardless of where in the hierarchy of the Party, the elite of Chinese society.
