China : Third Plenum Communique - Xi Xingping disappoints Western Commentariat

Democracy and Class Struggle says the Third Plenum Communique  has disappointed most of the Western Commentariat, that is good, but is there anything in it that the revolutionary international  communist movement could applaud.
Well the defence of State Industries and the attack on neo Liberal fundamentalism are welcome words but they are offset by a strong commitment to market mechanisms and the re affirmation of placing of Deng Xiaoping Thought on the same level as Mao Zedong Thought and not unsurprisingly no recognition of revolutionary Marxism Leninism Maoism has the genuine Marxism Leninism of our age.
The philosophy of synergising differences and the abandonment of class struggle is still is a theme that runs through this and other recent communiques from China.
There is a rebalancing in China away from market fundamentalism but is still far short of any conception of revolutionary socialism, Xi  Xingping has changed the direction a little in China but it is still a capitalist one with social democratic characteristics.
