comment Why is the Qing Dynasty in China considered Feudalistic?
Cool, that's what I thought as well. The Qing Dynasty, and several before it as well showed a lot of centralization of power. All delegations were under the direct authority of the Emperor, and reported to the Emperor in a purely subordinate-leader relationship. At least that's how it was set up. As far as time periods go, I feel like China developed absolutism as early as the very first dynastic Empire created by Qin Shi Huang. Am I mistaken?

comment Why is the Qing Dynasty in China considered Feudalistic?
That makes a lot of sense. I mostly heard of imperial china being called feudalistic from a Marxist perspective. It was the stuff people took for granted when I lived in China. After thinking about the subject a bit more I realize that the imperial chinese government is almost as unfeudalistic as a monarchy can get.
