In terms of ideology the CCP is really not much different from the western left. China like the left is in favor of giving minorities special treatment such as excepting them from the one-child policy (which was eventually lifted also for han chinese). The general pattern is that CCP really isn't that different in what they want to achieve, they just go about it a bit differently.

> In recent years, Shenzhen has emerged as a leader in progressive gender-related policy. In January, the city became the first jurisdiction in the country to introduce guidelines for curbing sexist ads objectifying women or portraying them in subordinate roles to men

Their pandemic response was initially more draconian than most western countries but new zealand did a similar lockdown with success.

China like the west plans to introduce central bank digital currency which has been needed for some time.

Looks like Jack Ma will play a role in this.

China like the west rely a lot on the private sphere for growth, this may be upsetting to lefties/communists but it's kinda hard to avoid since it's just really hard for a central government to control an entire economy, it's simply too demanding in terms of what calculations that needs to be done so even with modern technology we still cannot quiet get there yet.
