Re: State capitalism, not socialism

Socialism is a very broad umbrella, which covers both democratic and non-democratic systems.

It's worth noting that the Chinese system does involve elections (that's part of the reason for this conference), whether one considers them to democratic or not probably depends more on one's own culture. Certainly the average Chinese citizen probably has about as much say about the highest levels of their government as in any other country (ie bugger all).
