To all the Xi Jinping enthusiasts, why has China(alleged Communist Utopia) approved almost 50 of Ivanka Trump’s patents for her own failing businesses? Why is an alleged Communist government doing tax payer funded favors for American Imperialist Billionaires? In what AU are millions of tax dollars going to foreign colonialists instead of the social safety net the epitome of Marxist ideals?

@denikombucha

1. China is socialist, not communist, there is a difference (namely, socialism is the transition stage between capitalism and communism)

2. Communism is not an utopia, Marx already said that

3. I don't know how the Chinese patent system works, but do you expect them to deny patents based on who owns them?

4. I don't understand what patents have to do with tax dollars going to foreign colonialists

@felix @denikombucha Felix 😭 that article is great for laughing at China sticking it to western businesses but I wouldn't hold it up as proof China is socialist... Washington State (US) is doing that stuff too after this election...

Deni has some solid questions, and nitpicking with "well actually, it's socialism not communism" is pretty condescending... I like you, but you do this a lot
