The Chinese Communist had gone much further. They are totally dysfunctional. Their entire system had collapsed. Take this example. It is only one of many, but a critical one, especially for Mao's idiotic regime:
In other words, their Communist Party no longer commands the so called army. Money commands the army. Their system of political commissars is useless. The army, so called are mercenaries, in effect armed thugs for sale to the highest bidder. China had these 'armies' at one time, in the 1920s, under the warlords.

You now have the beginning of the disintegration of the evil empire of the Chinese Communist before you. Watch this space.
