headlong drive towards capitalism is beginning to meet resistance.
Workers’ protests are growing. Opposition is even being voiced
within the ranks of the Chinese Communist Party itself. It is merely
a matter of time before the class struggle erupts on a grand scale.
The widening income gap in China and
the resulting social explosions, threatening the interests of the
ruling bureaucracy and capitalists, is a top item on the agenda of
the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party. In a bid to ease the
revolt, the 11th five-year economic plan is nominally focusing on
more equal distribution, but this cannot solve the contradictions
created by the move towards capitalism.
