As yet, we have usually have a deceptive clarity of what “Xi Jinping Thought” is all about.

Xinhua describes it as socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era: a good aphorism though tough to pin down.

In some respects, a fundamentals of a new speculation are unimportant. Attaching Xi Jinping’s name to a domestic truth is as many about symbolism as substance.

The dual prior Chinese leaders had their theories – Hu Jintao was famous for his “scientific opinion on development” and Jiang Zemin had “the speculation of 3 represents”.

It would have been peculiar if Xi Jinping had not got his own.

But Mr Xi appears to have left serve than his dual evident predecessors. Neither Mr Hu nor Mr Jiang had their names related to their theories.

That payoff has formerly left usually to Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, comrade China’s dual many worshiped leaders. Does this meant Mr Xi’s energy now rivals theirs?

Formally, “Xi Jinping Thought” still needs to be authorized during a Communist Party association before it is incorporated into a party’s constitution.

The congress, that takes place once each 5 years, will finish on Tuesday. More than 2,000 representatives are attending a event, that is holding place underneath parsimonious security.
