Socialism wi Cheenese characteristics
Socialism with Cheenese characteristics (Cheenese: 中国特色社会主义; pinyin: Zhōngguó tèsè shèhuìzhǔyì) is ae poleetical theory serving aes the principal guiding ideology of the contemporary Communist Pairty o Cheenae. The term entered common usage during the era of Deng Xiaoping, and was largely associated with Deng's overall program of adopting elements of market economics aes ae means tae increase productivity and foster growth while the Communist Party retained both its formal commitment tae achieve communism and its monopoly on political power.
In the party's offeecial narrative, Socialism with Cheenese characteristics is Marxism–Leninism adaptit tae Chinese condeetions and ae product of scientific socialism. The theory stipulated that Cheenae wis in the "primary stage of socialism" due tae its relatively low level of material wealth, and needit tae engage in economic growth before it pursued a more egalitarian form of socialism, which in turn would lead tae a communist society described in Marxist orthodoxy.
The post-Deng pairty has appended the theories of Three Represents, Scientific Outlook on Development, and Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Characteristic in a New Era tae the family of successor ideologies built upon the Socialism with Cheenese Characteristics framework. These theories have in some ways revised Dengist interpretations of the term, and in other ways have expanded them.
