According to Ai Jiawen's detailed analysis of Chinese intellectuals' discourse on Confucianism, three different approaches can be identified: while the socialist approach, drawing on the essence of Chinese culture and tradition, hopes to enrich and renovate Marxism, two other approaches-Confucian (rujia) and liberal——contain more or less subversive critiques of Marxism and the CCP, such as Kang Xiao guang's vision of discarding Marxism, "Confucianizing" the CCP, and establishing a Chinese " Confucian authoritarian regime" (Kang, 2005, 2007). In this complex situation, it is impossible to trace a homogeneous view of Confucianism. Instead, Ai Jiawen recommends speaking of a " refunctioning" of Confucianism undertaken by the official party-state by lifting the tradition out of its previous context, reconceptualizing it, and investing it with new meanings ( Ai, 2008). In this sense, official discourse can be seen as avoiding a head- on collision with those interpretations of Confucianism that openly challenge Marxism, and instead as emphasizing those elements of a reimagined tradition which are compatible with Marxism: love of order and stability, strong leadership, and social harmony.
