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


Do you even know that the statutory holiday in China is only 1 day?

People have to make up the other 2 by working additional days instead (often in preceding weekends), to give appearance of 3 days off. But really it's only 1 day in the official holiday calendar.

Between 2000 and 2007, the worker's day constituted one of three "Golden Weeks" in the country's holiday calendar, and before 2008 May Day holiday in China really was 3 actual holidays. I'd call reduction from 3 to 1 days "waning".

Remaining two golden weeks make up Chinese New Year in spring and the National Day in autumn. May Day is nowhere near that status anymore.

Regardless, China still holds Marx in high regard, promoting his Theory,  even holding a Marx symposium, donating a sculpture of him to Germany, things not seen elsewhere in the world!

Ok, that's all fine.

I was just suggesting that "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." is a false statement, because it is exactly the opposite.

If anything, it has been "communist" China which has delivered goodies to people in other nations - indirect result of which is some prosperity also in China.

Now it is time for China to deliver goodies to her own people directly, something that did not happen under communist rule, but may happen under socialist rule.

"Regardless. China holds Karl Marx in high esteem."

Moot point. This says zero about the achievements of communism in China.

What matters is that communism never made any nation prosperous. The new affluence evident in China owes to hard work, big risks braved by Hong Kong and Western investors and the willingness of the Party to be pragmatic and to learn from capitalists.

Karl Marx fathered 7 children and his family experienced hunger and hardships... I doubt he would have accepted a government ban on a couple having more than two children and enforced abortions...

Did you know that ine of K. Marx' daughters married Frenchman Paul Lafargue who penned an essay titled
"The Right To Be Lazy"?

It is pamphlets like this that helped give Communism a bad name, and correctly so.

And since K. Marx was a German, let us remind the forgetful that 17 million Germans suffered through more than 44 years of communist mismanagement of their economy, were not permitted socialist "brother nations" such as China and even though they were better off than people in other Warsaw Pact states, ceaselrssly drramed of going West. Today  Marxism s just a historic chapter and a nightmare in the memory of most Europeans
