“This tension, in turn, carries significant implications for Chinese civil society, particularly the country’s social organizations — institutions roughly equivalent to NGOs, but that nonetheless experience a certain amount of state oversight and guidance.”

 

remove ‘state’, insert ‘party’…

 

The party will never allow capacity to be built because ‘the totality’ is to serve the ‘party’ which has a monopoly on ‘truth’ and ‘power’…

“However, social organizations continue to suffer from a lack of capacity building — that is, the ability to obtain and strengthen the skills, knowledge, and other resources needed to do their jobs properly and attain a certain autonomy from the state via sustainable self-management, governance, and finance. Capacity building usually requires money, but money alone does not make social organizations capable of sustained development.”
