I'm confused ...

What has this got to do with either capitalism, communism or how we 
deal with China.

Elements of the lunatic (or criminally ignorant) element got itself 
zotted into a local council, and started issuing decrees to maximise 
revenue.

Crazy? Yes.

A commentary on the relative merits of capitalism and communism? No.

Hey ... I've seen the same things happen when the idiot element gets 
itself into power in Western, capitalist and Caucasian power 
structures.

We have a number of recent home-made examples of same that have 
caused a heap more destruction and misery than this Chinese coterie.

That said: The Chinese example is further proof that there is no 
intelligent life on this planet.
