I think about this stuff whenever that happens because the two governments carefully craft their public statements to acknowledge and support how each of them see themselves in relation to the socialist project. The Constitution of Vietnam states that Vietnam is not yet socialist and is still in a period of transition, while Beijing maintains that China is governed by socialism with Chinese characteristics. I suppose the crass way to look at it is that they both have Coca-Cola bottling plants, but then again, so does Venezuela, and the cult of the U.S. Congress still wants it thrown on the pyre. Thomas Friedman, as usual, is full of shit.
