Be Vigilant Against Those who Denigrate Chinese Communism

It is often left-leaning capitalists in the UK that criticise Communist China. This type of bourgeois often supports the Labour Party, and whilst living within, and supporting the capitalist system – openly attack non-European countries that have thrown-off the capitalist yoke. My view is that this is anti-Chinese racism as manifested on the left of the political spectrum.

Lucid Marx

Even the old Soviet Union (1917-1991), in its English translations of Marxist texts, used the term ‘spiritual’ to refer to ‘consciousness’, and in so doing, marked a clear separation between socialist and communist theory, with that of the theology of the established Judeo-Christian tradition that had dominated Europe with its ecclesiastical imaginations for over a thousand years.

Eurocentricism in the British Left

Marx and Engels were born in Europe, but the system of analysis that they developed transcended their own ethnocentric predicament, making the Marxist conception of history and dialectical analysis truly universal. Professor Yang Geng of mainland China, comments in his 2010 book entitled ‘Defense for Marx’, that Marx, through his genius, saw through his own historical conditioning, simultaneously completing, and transcending the entire philosophical project of the West.
