Additional information




During Southern Talks, Deng Xiaoping proposed the policy of avoiding quarrels, was it right or wrong? The policy was proposed regarding some concrete measures of reform and opening up in order to win time, we should not miss opportunities by indulging into debates. It didn’t mean we ignore ideological issues, whether to take the socialist path or the capitalist one. It was in line with the law of cognition, in line with the Marxist viewpoint of “practice comes first” and conformed to our past experiences.
— Zhu Jiamu, Vice President of the CASS
opponents are particularly fond of the myth that the Communist victory would provoke a civil war in Russia. We are ending this lie. CPRF’s ultimate goal is a peaceful and stable development of Russia and return of people’s wealth back to people. With our rule, the country will get rid of the destructive rule of the “wild” market. We will restore the state regulation of economic life, its core planning, industrial and agricultural policy. Privatization and the so-called “reform” destroyed more than two thirds of the country‘s industrial potential. It‘s time to rectify the situation.”
— Ouyang Xiangying, Institute of World Economics and Politics, CASS
Venezuela became the vanguard of the socialist forces in the Southern hemisphere. Venezuela’s exploration of socialism may not tally with the traditional definition of socialism and socialism building, but we should say that there can be no fixed model for socialism and socialism building,And such new explorations do not only enhance the vitality and enrichment of the world socialism, but also expands the influence of Marxism in the world, innovates and develops Marxism.
— Zhu Jidong, Director of World Socialism Research Center, CASS
The Japanese Communist Party put forward a new demand to fight against the deregulation of the labor market: to fight against the increasing poverty in the working class. Chairman Shii claimed that “poverty comes from broken rules for decent work, we should be able to impose social regulations in order to curb large corporations’ craze for profit. Consequently, the JCP advocated and demanded the “regulated economy versus capitalism without rules”.
— Zheng Ping, Associate researcher in the Marxism Research Institute, CASS
Ideological confusion and changes since Khrushchev have been the precursor of reverse “evolution” of Soviet Union with negation of the history of the CPSU and the socialist practices of the SU was the core agenda. Hostile forces can only restore capitalism through paralyzing the ruling communist party and grabbing state power, this is only possible if the communist party is in an ideological disorder and poorly organized. Some people argue that Gorbachev’s ideas saw a gradual change in the course of time, his gradual style regarding ideological issues was a kind of trick, he has always been consistent in his final goal.
