BEIJING - China's Communist Party - the world's largest political movement, with 66 million members - has bid to cast off its harsh image as a revolutionary party committed to violent class struggle in favour of the more mellow image of a conventional ruling party.
At its week-long congress that ended on Friday, the Party redefined itself from the "revolutionary vanguard of the proletariat" to a representative party of the whole nation, embracing capitalists - the class enemies it loathed in the past - and electing a younger generation of leaders.
While some Chinese pundits are grappling to present the current transfer of power as a watershed for the Communist Party in the new century, other watchers are hunting for clues on whether the change in the leadership faces is anything more than just a generational change for the same old party.

‘Admitting’ them to the ‘public’ or to political parties (which are highly exclusionary in Thailand, perhaps, to an extent, except for the Democrats) would drastically reduce their freedom of action, and that means, their utility.
If it “is the essence of individual sovereignty in a democracy” to maximize utility (the author here follows Downs), and if, as has been demonstrated, rural voters cannot and/or are kept from maximizing their utility in the frame of the national political system called ‘democracy’, then, it follows, they lack this (politically speaking) individual sovereignty.
