Yeah, I've been browsing and commenting there and the uncritical belief that the CCP is somehow able to ride the forces of dialectical materialism to a post capitalist future is kind of sad. That's not how Marxism works.

Tankies just don't want to accept that there is no great anti-capitalist power and so they cynically embrace capitalism by another name.

This is also certainly not the chapo community from reddit where democs made tankies feel unwelcome.

Well I imagine a good amount of them were tankies before. There are far too many comments and posts stating, "I once thought China bad. But no more!".

I like to imagine if I disengage they will just waste their energy trying to radicalize eachother's demsoc personas.
