Fidel Castro on Chinese socialism (1993)

China is no longer the China of the feudal lords, nor the constant victim of the aggressions of colonial and imperial powers. This is the new China that emerges from the victorious national liberation struggle and the socialist revolution, exploits unsurpassed in human history. Everything was carried out under the immortal ideas of Marxism-Leninism and their wise application to China’s conditions. The path China has had to travel following liberation has been long, difficult, and risky in a world where imperialism exercised and still exercises power and hegemonic influence. Colossal successes have been attained. The era of disasters and famines has been left behind. Only socialism could have been capable of the miracle of feeding; clothing; providing with jobs, education, and healthcare; raising life expectancy to 70; and providing decorous shelter for more than 1 billion human beings in a minute portion of the planet’s arable land. Thanks to such a feat at this difficult time for the world’s peoples, over one-fifth of humanity remains under the banner of socialism.

One thought on “Fidel Castro on Chinese socialism (1993)”

  1. I am from Vancouver,Canada and i wanted to say that Fidel Castro was a true Internationalist.He stopped the Apartheid Gov’t of South Africa from invading Angola,Namibia,Mozambique and other African countries.Fidel made connections to countries from China to the Middle East and beyond.He knew that Socialism was the way out of poverty and away from Imperialism.Today in many parts of the world that are fighting against Imperialism and for their independence there are people with pictures of Fidel and Che Guevara on the Streets fighting for Socialism.
