    At the recent Chinese Communist Party Congress Xi filled major government bodies with friends and loyalists. But there are no possible successors. Like France's King Louis XIV, Xi can say, "The Party? It's me". The Central Committee filled with managers of state owned firms: a sign that economic reforms will be slow. Nationalism is a double-edged sword. If Xi fails, his many enemies in the Party will coalesce.

    China is too aggressive in international stage. They do not accept any question, they always try to veil everything with "Chinese characteristics" mask. I do not find them sincere.

    I have already written twice that Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese characteristics in a new era is a novel and updated study of Marxism for any political scientist like me. It's a Thought that is inclusive and in-depth both from dialectical materialsm and multilateralism with win-win co- operation, shared benefit of mankind. These are focused first on a new economy of innovation and second on BRI. A developing economy like China can be faster and global based on Xi Jinping Thought if it adheres to poverty -free development, innovation, 4th industrial revolution, internet, multiculturalism and win -win cooperation free from dogmatism, geo politics, zero sum game, cold war and extremist terrorism and hegemonism.
