Political actors such as the Chinese Communist Party controls china’s economy and has created economic reforms to create prosperity in economy .The Chinese Communist Party have become a dominating force in china. Their government system is communist. The idea of private ownership and equality would be derogatory to the Chinese Communist Party, but based on recent political and economic reform, China is moving in the direction of democracy. While the Chinese Communist Party is still in control of China, China's hopes for a democratic system seem faint. These hopes have largely been quelled by the illegality of a civil society.
To do this they must have military power as well as economic power. China still wants to be the ‘middle-kingdom’ and the top leaders know this will take giving up short-run concessions in order to gain long-run supremacy. China will be hurt in the short-run by increasing its economic interdependence. The removal of certain tariffs and regulations will open up the Chinese market to outside competition. Government owned companies that were losing money will not survive with out drastic changes.
Human rights in China had its origins at about the same time that the Ching dynasty collapsed and again in 1911 as part of Sun Yet Sing’s program. Eight years later in 1919, a new iconoclastic movement took over and the appeal of human rights for the radicals of the time came about because it gave them the antithesis of Confucian values, the self. This antithesis aided them in their quest to escape the imperialism of the time and modernize China. Confucian teachings urge the government to rule humanely and with virtue. The ultimate goal of helping the common-people to become educated and thus prosper.
As a result, scholar officials in power tended to have conservative and moderate ideas, which the people could accept. Nevertheless, intellectuals not in power might have more radical ideas since they regarded the idea of the officialdom were too backward to meet the changing and deteriorating situation. But, they still aimed to making China powerful and strong. Ever since, the ideas of these intellectuals had not change. It was only the time element that had made one idea surfaced after one another since the former had been driven by time to become an anachronism, and the latter had become an appropriate solution to the changing political situation.
Good in the form building better social relations with other countries, bad in the form of this new big push failing. Although there were foreign exchanges, there was soon a shortfall in payments to other countries. Due to the shortfall, ... ... middle of paper ... ...country the deepest, and most productive cleanse yet. There may be one sometime in the future that may lead China into a democracy, but until then, 1978 is where I find the real revolution to be. It had to clean up after a failed leader who was selfish in his choices and brought the country two steps back every time.
They searched for new doctrines to replace Confucian teachings; some of these new ideologies include the "Three Principles of the People" with the establishment of the Republic of China, and then Maoism under the People's Republic of China. In the late twentieth century, some people credited Confucianism with the rise of the East Asian economy and it enjoyed a rise in popularity both in China and
It had become clear to members of the CCP that economic reform would fulfill a political purpose as well since the party felt, properly it would seem that it had suffered a loss of support. As Susan L. Shirk describes the situation in The Political Logic of Economic Reform in China, restoring the CCP's prestige required improving economic performance and raising living standards. The traumatic experience of the Cultural Revolution had eroded popular trust in the moral and political virtue of the CCP. The party's leaders decided to shift the base of party legitimacy from virtue to competence, and to do that they had to demonstrate that they could deliver the goods. This movement "from virtue to competence" seemed to mark a serious departure from orthodox Chinese political theory.
They now trade with the West but only along the terms of it being to increase the efficiency, strength and economy on China. The capitalist benefited this, but I think that the state also does because they have joined enterprises. Democracy is one element that they have not established as far as we know. There is only one party, the communists, in which the public votes for different chairmen in that party that they want to elect and make leader, this is not what you would call democracy. Although I must take into account the Chinese perspective and looking at the way the country has been run in previous year... ... middle of paper ... ...extent as communism is about the growth or the country and trying to improve it and I think that they have accomplished that.
Over the past three decades, China has been undergoing economic reforms and changes to its political structure from communism towards a more market-oriented system. It’s changing political structure has been described in various terms such as pro-growth authoritarianism (Lai, 2010), a variegated form of state-permeated capitalism (Brink, 2013), refurbished state capitalism (McNally, 2013), and a social-capitalist model (Degen, 2011). All these terms suggest that China has been shifting towards a more market-oriented system but continue to take a state-centric approach. Deng Xiaoping described this system as a Socialist market economy with Chinese characteristics. This hybrid social-capitalist or social-communist model (Sigley, 2006; Wu, 2005) is unlike traditional communism whereby all economic and social activities are controlled by a centralized state dominated by a single political party.
