Is this a correct interpretation of China's path, or how China sees its path?

China seems to have been becoming more and more capitalist.  In the United States, the prevailing interpretation seems to be that that means that China is slowly abandoning communism.

But is this the Chinese view?

In Marxist theory, countries move from feudalism to capitalism, and from capitalism to communism.  But historically, the latter did not happen.  The countries (like Russia and China) that had communist revolutions were feudal societies.

That means that those countries missed the capitalist phase, and the development generated by capitalism.  

By allowing itself to become partially capitalistic, whether temporarily or permanently, it is making up for that gap.  The capitalist development in China is ultimately intended to serve socialistic goals.

Would that be a correct interpretation of the Chinese view?

It depends on Chinese elites whether this stage is stageism or it is just lurch toward full blown 'capitalism' and 'market economy'. It seems that the CPC party members have made themselves 'elite' and they are all at the top of society so I really can't see them keeping to communist ideals only moving further away from them. The Chinese Government will lose all power and the power will move to the Chinese 'elites' and this will be very bad for 'China' and majority of Chinese. I think this will happen. Chinese 'elites' are not going to give up their advantage to bring in a more equal society.

When I think of CPC members I think of that one that was dancing with his sugar baby in a balcony pool to classic music. So a socialist may wish that this stage is stageism but that is wishful thinking in my opinion.

Maybe Xi Jinping can fix it.

One of the first threads I posted to this forum is about stageism. I had more faith in China back then than I do now.

My thought was that since China knows how it is to be treated as a 'third world' nation then Chinese would use its great power to make the world a better place not just for poor Chinese but for all citizens of nonaligned nations. But instead China sends newly wealthy Chinese to western nations like Australia to buy up all the property raising house prices so that working class Aussies can't afford to buy a house. Newly wealthy Chinese raise up uni fees and take uni spots. Chinese are helping western wealthy and hurting workers of the west. So the people I wanted to help as a kid are making my life worse and harder. Which is pretty $%$%ed. And the more I learn about Chinese the less faith of have in them. Wealthy Chinese treat poor Chinese much worse than wealthy west treats poor west.  

The capitalist idea is to make western citizens like me third world. Chinese are making it possible.

Look at that show Are You the One. Chinese people are the worst pretty much. Not socialists. Chinese don't care about others or the world.
