Internally, Xi Jinping has cracked down hard on:-
  • Dissent
  • Chinese tech industry
  • Chinese entertainment industry
  • Chinese billionaires
  • Foreign Culture
  • Foreign language schools
  • Foreign textbooks
  • Capitalism
  • Hong Kong
  • Computer games
  • Industries seen as "non-productive"
Externally, Xi Jinping has made multiple threats and statements:-
  • USA as origin of Wuhan Virus
  • Blaming India for Galwan and other escalations
  • Wolf Warrior diplomacy
  • USA doing economic warfare against China
  • Harsh international climate for China
This list is not exhaustive, but its clear that big changes have been underway in China these days. Recently CCP released what people are calling a declaration for another revolution. The word "revolution" was used in this document. Further explanation in this video:-
.
The document explained in this video strings together most of what is happening and we can see a common theme. China appears to be turning inwards again, blaming the world. Internal crackdowns have the feel of what a typical authoritarian state would do to make its men more "masculine", remove all distractions, remove public figures outside of CCP around whom public can rally (film stars and capitalists), declare that focus should be shifted on high-tech industries. All of this is again being dressed up as "wealth re-distribution" and "workers of the country taking centerstage" i.e. typical Marxist horseshit and China under siege internationally, i.e. China being bullied by world. They are programming the Chinese population to prepare for these changes and "hard times".
.
There is a paradigm shift occurring in China right now. Purpose of this thread is to track these changes in one location rather than spreading it out among three threads on Chinese economy, military and culture.

Analysis: Why does Xi want to take China back to the socialist era?

It has been observed after the China-USA Trade war and Wuhan virus breakout, Xi Jinping (incumbent Chairman of CCP), wants to take China back to the socialist era. Possibly for an invasion of Taiwan.
here are a few things that point out to the claim mentioned above:

1) Xi's crackdown on billionaires and influential and corrupt CCP politicians.
2) Crackdown on protestors in Hong kong and passing the National Security Law.
3) Xi's crackdown on Chinese Big Tech and Unicorns (Alibaba, Tencent, DiDi, Meitun, etc )
4) Xi's crackdown on Private educational institutes and EduTech firms.
5) Sri Lanka, Paxtan have fallen in knee-deep debt of China.
6) Number of aggressions against Taiwan has increased in past 2-3 years.
7) Aggression on Western front with India

Xi now has to prove himself and righteousness of his actions in the upcoming National People's Congress 2022. When situations like these emerged in the past, Mao always resorted to a war to distract the people's attention from other issues and unite the CCP.

Article from 2020, but highly relevant. Seems like they are preparing for World War 3.

The move is to make China less reliant on the world and to make the world more reliant on China

Self-reliance isn’t only the flavour of the moment in India, but increasingly the phrase of choice in China, where a leadership, chastened by the impact of COVID-19, a trade war with the United States, and a reassessment by many countries of their dependence on Chinese supply-chains, is making an accelerated push to reframe the nature of China’s engagement with the world.
At the heart of this push, as President Xi Jinping outlined in an essay published in the November edition of the Communist Party’s official journal, is an aim to essentially make China less reliant on the world and to make the world more reliant on China.
Doing so, in Mr. Xi’s view, is particularly important when it comes to what he described as “trump card” technologies that can be decisive in a conflict.
.
‘Dual circulation’
“Dual circulation” is the name that Beijing has given this approach favoured by Mr. Xi, of boosting the domestic economy (or internal circulation) while recalibrating China’s external relations (the other circulation) – an anodyne term that blurs the increasing importance of self-reliance in Beijing’s outlook today.

In the newly published essay, which was based on an internal speech Mr. Xi delivered in April that wasn’t publicised, the Chinese President said “the strategy of domestic demand expansion” should be China’s priority, and “building a complete internal demand system bears on China’s long-term development and long-term peace and stability.”

“Economic globalisation has encountered headwinds, and this pandemic may intensify counter-globalisation trends,” he said. “With inward-turning tendencies clearly on the rise among nations, there could be significant changes in the external environment facing China’s development. Implementing the internal demand expansion strategy is a necessity for responding to the pandemic’s impact.”
The second pillar of this strategy, as he put it, was to “optimise and stabilise production chains and supply chains.” The pandemic, he said, was “a stress test under combat conditions” and had served warnings of the dangers of decoupling.
“In order to safeguard China’s industrial security and national security, we must focus on building production chains and supply chains that are independently controllable, secure and reliable, and strive for important products and supply channels to all have at least one alternative source,” he said, listing sectors such as high-speed rail, electric power equipment, new energy, and communications equipment where China needed to preserve its advantages.
The most revealing part of Mr. Xi’s essay was his statement that China “must tighten international production chains’ dependence on China” with the aim of “forming powerful countermeasures and deterrent capabilities”. This would give China leverage should countries threaten to limit access to key technologies, as the U.S. has done with semiconductors.
The idea, in his view, is for China to “rely more on the domestic market”. He said there was “no contradiction” between doing so and opening up, because domestic and external “circulation” would be “mutually reinforcing”.
.
Self-sufficiency
That, however, is not how India and many of China’s biggest trading partners see it, instead viewing a push that will increasingly prioritise self-sufficiency.
The key difference with India’s own “self-reliant” emphasis is that China is at the same time embracing new trading arrangements such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), from which India withdrew last year, and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the other big regional trading bloc that succeeded the TPP after America’s withdrawal, which Mr. Xi has expressed interest in joining.
Trading agreements, in Beijing’s view, will open new markets and help increase trade dependencies on China overseas — China is already the biggest trading partner for many of the RCEP’s members — even while China is moving to erect ever higher non-tariff barriers for foreign firms, particularly in sensitive sectors — all while positioning itself as a defender of globalisation.
In fact, agreements like the RCEP failing to adequately address this contradiction was one key reason why India ultimately withdrew from the negotiations, receiving no assurances of a level playing field, even as it was asked to open up its economy.

Xi is becoming weak from inside and to hide his weakness, he tries to act like macho dictator. Xi is a blessing on India. When India is trying to emerge as a substitute of China on global front, Xi is making it easy for India by creating hostility against civilized world and creating enmity. It is for India to grab the opportunity with both hands.

Not only China, the world gave many more chances to India.
After 911, after 2008, after Pandemic...

The problem is India never catch the opportunity, the gap between China & India from 2 times GDP to 6x ...
You only have yourself to blame...

From my view from the inside of China, it's not revolution 2.0, it's just regulation.
The regulation every leader did from Deng Xiaopeng, Jiang Zeming, Hu Jintao.

The funny thing is, from economic point of view, every time after such kind of regulation, the Chinese society became more active, competitive and open.

After Jiang's regulations, there were state owned banks, oil companies, power grids became world top 500;
After Hu's regulations, there were alibaba, tecent, JD ...
During Xi's regulations, there are DJI, Xiaomi, Huawei, ByteDance(tiktok) ...

China is a huge running system, the regulation is needed for sometime. Yes, India never had like this, but where India is now?

Just my personal POV from China, might be different from outside of China..

India is a democracy. We can not enslave our people to work them for 16 hours for a bowl of rice. We have laid a solid foundation for progress. Our education is unparallel. We have progrwssed well at an average of 6 to 7 pc though lesser than China. However, our structural reforms are about to complete. We have surpassed China in many development recently like FDI, growth rate, new Unicorn start ups etc. We recently ranked 2nd in attractive manufacturing destination. Recently, there are many companies which has started migrating to India from Vhina. We are all set to progress at about 10 pc growth rate in real term and at 15 pc in market value for next two decades to come . We will surpass China in next two to three decades to become World's largest economy. It has been predicted by many reputed many renowned Global firms. Our economy is much bigger than many countries who are ahead of us but because of a big difference in INR vs USD, our economy is 5th at present which is third otherwise. We have added 25 Bn USD foreign exchange reserve in just two week and our currency is all set to strengthen. We shall addd same amount of our GDP at any point of time to our economy just because of currency appreciation. It is a matter of time before we surpass your economy. We have invested in human capital. It is a but robust way to progress.

I really like this kind of prediction from our forum member, since i have been here for 10 yrs, it's always quite entertaining to check this kind of stuff after few years.

Let's see previous episode:
