The defining geopolitical contest of the twenty-first century is between China and the US. But is it avoidable? And if it happens, is the outcome already inevitable?
China and America are world powers without serious rivals. They eye each other warily across the Pacific; they communicate poorly; there seems little natural empathy. A massive geopolitical contest has begun.
America prizes freedom; China values freedom from chaos.America values strategic decisiveness; China values patience.America is becoming society of lasting inequality; China a meritocracy.America has abandoned multilateralism; China welcomes it.
Kishore Mahbubani, a diplomat and scholar with unrivalled access to policymakers in Beijing and Washington, has written the definitive guide to the deep fault lines in the relationship, a clear-eyed assessment of the risk of any confrontation, and a bracingly honest appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses, and superpower eccentricities, of the US and China.
Look into China
China is a dictatorship of a society where the communist party and its members reign with supreme power and use their power for corruption, power/influence, and anything they desire. To question their leadership is setting yourself up for bullying, harassment, jail time, or forced into slave camps. There government which is a communist government and not a democratic government where you vote rather they Chinese communist party)decide who gets in and controls everything and from there they abuse their power. A government which commits genocide and engages in forced human organ harvesting of dissidents, prisoners of conscience, or anybody that is a enemy of the party or is simply a Muslim uyger and for that you are prosecuted. That’s China.
