Having read Karl Marx, and seeing the 10 tenets of Communism, I find it hard to consider China as a Communist country.

Just trying to stick to the 10 tenets.

  1. Abolition of private property, everything is public.
  2. Progressive Tax.
  3. Abolition of rights inheritance.
  4. Confiscation of property of all emigrants and rebels.
  5. Centralization of all credit in the hands of the state.
  6. Communication and Transportation in the hands of the state.
  7. Factories and instruments of production owned by the state.
  8. Equal obligation of all to work.
  9. Abolition between distinction of town and country by equable distribution of population over land.
  10. Abolition of child labor; child rights to education; education combined with industrial production.

I mean as I go down the list I only see China doing a few of these things, and blatantly doing the opposite in other ways.

I know that these tenets aren't the end all be all of communism - but should be considered nonetheless.
