We could perhaps accept that China, as many foresee, will become the first economic power of the planet in the near future. Its glory is not completely foregone, since it depends on the difficulties of their reform process, as well as on the reactions of the developed countries in the West through, among other things, the encouragement of sweeping free trade agreements. Nevertheless, the said reality could be confirmed in a few years.

Not a few people in China ignore what happened in Tiananmen in June 1989. Furthermore, many of those who know, to be objective, care very little, or not at all. In contrast, the authorities are very careful not to overlook the said date. This is how effective and contradictory oblivion can be. Those who make the most to erase what happened from the collective memory cannot forget it under any condition. After 25 years, the Tiananmen paradox resides on the fact that, even though the causes for that civic rebellion (corruption, nepotism, increase in inequalities, demands for political reforms, etc.) still prevail today, the commitment of the actors who took part in such tragedy is very different, most notably the students, originally the main drivers of the protest. Today, in China, students are not a reference about the state of public opinion and the country’s conscience anymore, as they traditionally were since the beginning of the 20th century. After the events of 1989, the intense combination of indoctrination and depoliticisation, mandatory militias –several weeks long– still prevailing today  to instil discipline, the proliferation of all sorts of controls, the gradual transformation of universities into economic management units by different means –either through the creation of companies or through the controversial “sale” of places to the children of the wealthy– or a public policy on increasing research that focuses on ideological loyalties and invites to massive auto censorship, complete the neutralising circle.

Marxism is the initial ideological foundation of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Over time it has incorporated Leninism, Maoism, Denguism and other more recent theoretical additions, from Jiang Zemin’s Three Represents to Hu Jintao’s Scientific Development. This forms a heterogeneous map that also contrasts with a reality in which economic liberalism and political authoritarianism are combined, bewildering those who try to guess whether China is one thing or the other, or both at the same time. This China believes in sovereignty and development, but what else does it believe in? Without a clear ideology we will not be able to say that China –or any other nation– is a strong country, even when its magnitude in other fields, be it economy or military force, improve noticeably over the years.

One of the major constants that can be perceived in Chinese history is its enormous capacity to absorb and digest external influence. The Mongol invasion and the creation of the Yuan Dinasty (1279-1368), with the Great Kublai Kan at the lead, or the Qing Dinasty (1616-1911) have been frequently mentioned as paradigmatic. However, it could also be said that the very Han people, the overwhelming majority of the population in China, is nothing but a melting pot of the diverse miscegenation conformed throughout the centuries.

Traditionally, when evaluating the axis of change initiated more than three decades ago in China with Deng Xiaoping we tend to focus more on the reform than on the opening to the outside. However, for a civilization that has lived wrapped up in itself for centuries, is new exposure to the outside world is the most significant factor. In fact, China has never been as interdependent as it is now, which implies a sweeping transformation.
