You have defined Socialism well in your discussion of China. Socialism is just rhetoric used to inspire Youth to rebel against the Capitalist order that has made their parents rich, in order to give absolute power to thugs who will operate the system for their own benefit, like Fuedal overlords in a medieval feifdom. It is only when you understand that Socialism doesn’t work, and is just a scam, that it makes any sense.

China today is run just like Nazi Germany: “a hybrid command-capitalist economy run by a National Socialist Party mafia with a flag.” How can you not include Nazi Germany and Communist China in the same definition of Socialism that embraces Stalin’s Soviet Russia and Pol Pot’s Cambodia?

They all use Socialist rhetoric to achive Fascist dictatorship power.

I think we actually agree on this.
