The live broadcast of the celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx shows how much he is revered in China, with the full Chinese leadership in attendance, and  a huge portrait of Marx at centerstage, a place reserved only for Mao!
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the struggling North Korea and Cuba and other communist states, China stands out as the only communist country in the world that has made communism a success story and putting to shame all those who endlessly claim that only capitalism can deliver the goodies to a nation's people.

China only did this because it adopted elements of free market capitalism to trade with more prosperous (capitalist) nations, and even this it did at cost of nearly irreversible environmental damage, and prolonged corruption and poverty.

If all world was equally poor (politically and otherwise) as China was at that time, China couldn't have risen to its feet either.

Communism until then had not created prosperity, not in China not anywhere else. It had only shared poverty, and created hidden elitism.

Despite the celebrations, communism in China is reduced to the party name, and even the official policy of the country is now socialism with Chinese characteristics, not communism.

"Despite the celebrations, communism in China is reduced to the party name, and even the official policy of the country is now socialism with Chinese characteristics, not communism."

Not so, socialism with Chinese characteristics has communism at its core, they have not forgotten the workers, nor exploited them, a practice often seen in capitalist economies!

I was in Germany in March and took the opportunity to look up my idol, Karl Marx in Trier.
He was very bitter, wailing over the price if coffee in his hometown's one STARBUCKS. "When I was young a cuo of coffee cost a mere 4 Pfennigs, and only the superrich such as me and my father could afford it... Today it costs not Pfennigs or Cents but a whopping 3 Euros. But the worst is not even its price... The worst is that in capitalist Deutschland every green prole can afford to down ten cups a day..."

May 1st is globally observed as International Workers' Day, roots of of which lie in commemorating the sacrifices that workers in Chicago, USA, made in 1886 to pursue 8 hour working day.

Both the events in Chicago, and recognizing the importance of them to worker's rights in 1903, happened over 100 years ago, long before modern China was even a distant dream.

Also in China, this worker's day was observed as the most important holiday in early days of communist rule. But it's importance has waned since then, replaced by more commercial and traditional festivals like the Dragon Both Festival, or Chinese New Year.

To this day Chinese workers continue to face restrictions in protesting or striking for improved working conditions and safety, and independent trade unions remain to be banned.

Substandard safety in mining industry, as well as state sponsored and enforced covering up of malpractices is a prime example of not respecting workers' rights in China.

Modern China under market capitalism producing prosperity has much better chance to see workers' rights improved than any of the past decades combined.

On the other side of the coin, improved workers' rights in western economies have largely contributed to increased salaries and production costs, moving production to poorer nations. China has been a major recipient of this production and prosperity it brings. Had workers' rights in west not been improved, Chinese workers wouldn't have the work to do, much less any rights.

Waned?  Which country gives its workers 3 days off to celebrate May day like China does?
