    Some people take pride in joining the party. Not really expensive to join either. Asking the problem on this forum probably isn't a very good idea.

    chinese communists are rightist-deviationists and are in fact not communist at all,


    how can you have 'the peoples' capitalists'?


    it is a perversion of the true Marxist-Leninist ideas set up in 1949,

    besides, China is guilty of many unethical things,

    In my eyes, the Chinese Communist Party is an instrument of oppressment. I oppose a single-party government and I would never join such an organisation.

    As for communism in general, I think that the 20th century has shown that it is an ideology that leads to failure.

    The idea that man will work hard even if he does not earn any benefits from it is an illusion.

    Besides, there has never been such a thing as a free communist country. Communism seems to exclude freedom, and I think freedom ought to be our most important political value.

    Most countries that have tried communism have ended up ruined.

    China is an exception, but the only reason it survived, is because it reformed itself and turned away from communism. China is not really a communist country anymore, because it has embraced many free-market principles. In fact, China is becoming more and more capitalist. The fact that it still calls itself "communist" is a slightly ridiculous.

    The only reason, China still wants to be considered a communist country, is because the government can use communism to justify oppression and lack of individual freedom. China is above all an authoritarian state, rather than a communist state.

    I would urge you not to join the Communist Party, as you are thereby supporting the enemies of a free and open society.

    Agreed. Free speech is a really nice thing to have you know? China would be great without the oppression of individuality. I think it's got to happen somehow, if china wants to keep up it's rate of economic growth. At some point people are going to rebel.

    That shouldn't be your reason for joining a party. Do you agree with their principles?

    btw, thank you for answering

    ah, but there's one small problem. The reason it is the "biggest as well as the most powerful" is due to the fact that the government, i.e the communist party, does not allow an opposition to be formed in China. Personally, I think that says it all.

    Obviously not, otherwise the human right record in China would be slightly better.

    Well I thought they might allow a puppet opposition or something to at least make it look like they're making an effort.

    Yeah basically to the original poster: You're not going to get many pro-communist party people on here.

    Now I may be wrong, because everything I've heard if portrayed by the media, but the communist party seems to have an ethics problem.
