  • Til feudal china was capitalist. This show is general great, but i stg the american libertarian brain rot is hard to hear. Maoist China (Svoiet Russia for that matter) were never communist, anymore than North Korea is a democratic republic. Besides that, having a commodity market isn't capitalism, pre-maoist china was feudalist. Maoist China was State Capitalist (fascism using communist terms for spin) and remains so to this day.
