Socialism with Chinese Characteristics

In 1850, in an essay on Chinese Socialism, Karl Marx wrote:
   It may well be that Chinese socialism is related to European socialism just as Chinese philosophy is related to Hegelian philosophy. But it is an amusing fact that the oldest and most unshattered Empire on this earth has been pushed, in eight years, by the cotton ball of the English bourgeois toward the brink of a social upheaval that must have most profound consequences for civilisation.
   When our European reactionaries, on their next fight through Asia, will have finally reached the Chinese Wall, the gates that lead to the seat of primeval reaction and conservatism, who knows, perhaps they will read the following inscription on the Wall:
République Chinoise
Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité
We are putting together a group of knowledgeable comrades to discuss the contemporary relevance of Marx's words, including David Ewing, US-China People Friendship Association;, Al Sargis, founder of the Friedrich Engels Institute of Marxist War and Military Analysis (FEIMWAMA); and Gerald Smith, Oscar Grant Committee
