China is communist in name only. It's economy is capitalism to it's core. You said they were devolving yet they make more things, have more
things and accomplish more things than the U.S. That isn't a sign of devolution.
You have some misconceptions about China, economically and politically.
The Communist Party of China is its dominant political party till this day and has been since 49. Politically, there's no debating their methods. Now,
capitalism? lol. They have special economic zones (SEZs), like Shenzhen, and SARs, like Hong Kong (where my brother works and it's the most
capitalistic place on Earth actually). However, over a BILLION of their people are working on slave labor in factories, suicide nets needed and all,
in the mainland and are even forbidden
from moving to cities like Hong Kong. It's having no "right of abode in Hong Kong". They can't even
enter these capitalistic territories w/o special permission. China is not capitalistic. Just places like Hong Kong, which don't even share the same
government as the rest of China, are. Actually, this proves succession can work, as it has with HK.
And of course China manufactures more than the US.... They market slave labor and have 3x more people.
